Default NA catback fits NB bolt-on?

Hey, there are so many cheap ebay exhausts, but theyre all for NA miatas. Is it possible to easily fit one of theese to a NB?

No, the flange and location of the cat is different. It's been discussed that it's not worth buying an NA header to modify to fit an NB mid-pipe. You're better off finding an NB model, or shelling out a few more pennies for a Racing Beat.

Cat back won't work as well.

Oops, had header on my mind. Fitment would be totally wrong for a cat-back.

Do the hangers on an aftermarket NA catback mate up to the hanger spots on an NB? I know the NA midpipe is different where it meets the cat, but since I'm not running a cat I was just gonna cut the flange, use the NB flange with a pipe connecting the two.

What does everyone think?! ALL aftermarket NB exhausts are expensiveeeee.

I don't think so. Why not just save up and buy an actual NB axle-back?

There's a few on there that are kinda cheap.

I think they are different... and the exit points of the exhaust are slightly different too i think. Just save for an NB exhaust
