Anybody else who's ordered OBX Catback Exhaust from SSAutochrome?

Has anybody else on the forum ordered the OBX Catback Exhaust from these guys? http://www.obxracingperformance.com/level.itml/icOid/1291. If so how did you get it installed? I got what appeared to be the cat in the mail and took it to Meineke to have it installed, but they say they can't install at all because the cat is designed to hook up to 3 bolts and the 2k2 Civic LX only has 2 bolts to attach to. Was I sent the wrong product or is there something obvious that I'm missing here?

I got a 2k1 EX and mine has 3 bolts. Put it on myself. Real simple job. Maybe the LX or the 2k2 is different.

It's probably because the cat is actually welded onto the end of the headers with the DX/LX rides. The cat is actually in the middle of the pipe on the EXs. This makes it a little easier to install the cat-back exhausts.

Yeah I can see it now looking in through the hood. 2 bolts. Damn SSAUtochrome swore to me it would fit an LX. Any clues as to a way I could mod this to fit my LX without just having 'em chop of the muffler and run a custom pipe?

They sold you the wrong stuff. Send it back. You won't be happy with a jury rig job.

Apparently this is an exhaust difference between the DX/LX and the EX. So wouldn't this same problem apply to all the LX owners out there who might try to put in exhausts? What are they doing to get around it?
