Down pipe

Did my install today. Read a few of the write-ups and that got me through it rather quickly. I had to the bend on the flange as everyone stated. Then welded the flange that was on the end of the stock down-pipe to the new down-pipe. It then bolted directly to the cat. I dont have to run a cat where I live so a 3 1/2 piece of pipe got welded into that spot. Looks like a stock set up. I still have a hard time believing that the factory puts that little flat pipe in there.

The stock pipe is 3 1/2 so why do I need to change it? My down pipe was 3 inch and had just a cut end. I welded the flange off the cat that took it up to the 3 1/2. I then removed the cat with the 3 1/2 pipe. I was able to use the flange joint and then I was able to use the hanger.
