Default New guy w/ exhaust flange question w/ pics

Hi!

I'm the owner of a 2003 Mazda b4000 I was replacing the stock exhaust system with a Magnaflow and the upstream flange on the Magnaflow cat is no match for the flange on the y-pipe collector.

Both from above.


The Magna flow which does not match the stock collector.


and the stock flange.


Both side by side.


Can I replace the y-pipe with another one from another model of ranger so I could use the Magnaflow cat? What year/model of ranger would fit that application?

Any ideas as to why the magnaflow does not match? The Magnaflow part # was correct for a 2003 b4000 Mazda.

Has anybody ever noticed a difference between said flanges?

Thanks in advance for your help.

cheers
ken

Is it my glasses or is your camera crap? Anyway, I would just make a new flange and weld it on.

It looks as if you have a 98-00 flange on there (part# 23541)....definitely the wrong part number. You need part# 93170.
