Finally got the cat and had the mechanic install it and the bung for the o2 sensor is 5 inches shorter than the stock cat that is on the car. My question is, are the measurements different on the 2000 models? Curt from Hogan says all the other ones he has made have had no fitment issues but the range is from 97-02 but he was under the understanding they were all the same. Anyone shed any light on this? I was supposed to take this car to the airport tomorrow morning so i can fly home for the weekend to see the family. Now I don't know what I am gonna do.....

You need to take it to an exhaust shop. A place that knows what they're talking about. Exhaust shops can weld that right into where the old cat would be, and you won't have to be given the run around by places like that. that'* just my two cents...

Thats all well and good, but the cat I bought was supposed to hook right up to the factory setup and the measurments are not right. SO how would going to an exhaust shop help? They would just rig it up so it would work.....

I have looked under the car and see the issue. I paid for a part that was bolt on and it does not bolt on.

Exactly, and not like that'* a bad thing either. They'd probably weld it in for you and, if they do it right, will be just as good if not more so than if you had it bolted in. Again, this is just my two cents, someone might come in and disagree with me...

Well the point of this post was to find out if the cat on a 2000 model is different than the other models?

I gotcha there chief, I will have to borrow a vehicle from some family here. The nice thing about this place is its in the same warehouse building that I am working in. I am a one man warehouse and can't really leave to take my car somewhere. This is why I went with the bolt on method.
