    VZ wagon Exhaust Question

    Looking at new exhausts online and the v8 systems and v6 systems look like they come off the extractors at similar points. My question is will a V8 CatBack system fit on my V6 stock extractors without too much hassle. I'm hoping they do so I can have the fatter pipes . Thanks guys.
