it's going to be completely differnt. The engine may be the same, but the chassis is differnt so..

I don't knonw if HKS is coming out with an axle back for 2nd gen's but personally, I think it's really difficult to attatch big muffler on 2nd gens due to the bumper and exhaust pipe diagram

Its actually quite simple under there, but your right it is different than the tc setup of course. Give it some time, not much after market stuff yet for our cars anyway. Hks will come out with something eventually. My opinion...

you could just buy the same muffler that the TC axle back has (not the whole axle back) and take it to a local muffler shop, have them cut out the stock right before the muffler starts and graft it in. i did it with a magnaflow muffler and it came out great. no real sound difference (until my strup header gets here) but i do have a bit of a clearance issue on steep driveways, but it leaves no damage that can be seen by looking at it.
