Yes, and it's a much better system.

Probably, unless you get real lucky with the studs.

I found a boss on the transmission that is disposable touched the
Sawzall fixed all. You'll need to relocate the OXS. Speed shops sell
"OXS bungs" which are about 1-1/4" diameter chunks of steel with
internal threads for the OXS. Cut a hole and weld it in, use a heated
OXS because it's further from the nice hot head now. The 4kq downpipe
also won't mate naturally to the back of your system. Good time to get
a single muffler 55 mm system installed!
Do it, do it, do it.
