    So, if I found a full catback exhaust that was designed for the 2dr Civic, what would i have to do to make it fit my 4dr? just lengthen the pipe from the cat?

    What exhaust system? / Year of car? When I searched i came up with:
    1992-1998 Civic ex two and four door are the same length for DC , 99-00 coupe/sedan are different.
    ??????
    Im guessing that adding a little length may be necessary after the cat.

    it's a greddy system from a 2dr 96 civic that might go on my 98 civic 4dr.

    so the bends should line up, but not the long run from the cat?

    I have a DC Sports exhaust from a 99-00 Si on my 98 EX 4-door. It fit without any modifications.

    so coupe exhausts might fit without any mods on a 4 door.

    Because the LX and DX have the cat right on the exhust manifold and not under the car after the axle seats. If you have an EX it will line up and your won't have to do anything. Trust me i have a 96 LX and put a full 00 EX exhust from header back and everything was cool

    k, reading up on it, it'll line up fine. it's from a 96ex 2dr going to a 98ex 4dr and all should be good according to H-T.
