Default 1996 Honda Civic Exhaust

My son has a 1996 Honda Civic CX hatchback. He purchased an
aftermarket exhaust system to replace the entire system from the
header all the way back. The exhaust header has a two bolt flange on
it. The corresponding piece of the replacement exhaust system has a
three hole flange and cannot be connected. It also appears that the
replacement system is about 6" too short. The system came from eBAY
from a store called Speedneedz (or something like that). Has anyone
come across this type of problem? To me it seems that all that is
needed is a transition piece to from from the two hole flange on the
header to the three hole flange on the exhaust pipe. What's annoying
is that this is supposed to be a simple replacement of a stock item
without modification. Hasn't worked out that way. Anyone come across
this before?

Thanks.

Doug

While i was under an 89 civic a few days ago I noticed that the HEADER
connection was two holes and the CATALYTIC CONVERTER had three holes.

Are you missing the converter?

Sounds like a Cat-Back system to me... You leave on the original
Catalytic Converter and put the new exhaust on, from the cat back...
