i have a 2003 zx3 with the 2.3L and i was wondering if a cat back system for a 2.0 would be a direct fit. I know the shocks/struts and springs are the same at least thats what they said at eibach. I talked to flomaster they hadn't done a cat back for the 2.3 at the time so they couldn't tell me if they were the same or not?

I think it would be different because of the 2.3 exhaust is on the firewall side not up by the radiator like the 2.0. The flexpipe might be farther back because of this, I dunno. Interesting though, someone will chime in soon.

If you are of the ability to do some cutting and welding, you could put a 2.0 cat-back on the 2.3. How good you are, will determine the outcome.
