Borla Install Help

Let me start by saying having to post this is making me feel like an idiot. I just got a Borla cat back system for my '95 D-90, and can't figure out how to install it (it didn't come with installation instructions or a parts list, which I shouldn't need for this). While I'm probably just missing something simple, I'm starting to think that what had been on the truck was not stock, because the flared end of the Borla muffler doesn't look like it will fit up to the existing pipes coming from the engine and allow brackets to be bolted together.

Is there anyone out there who has installed a Borla cat back that can help me out? A good picture of one installed would be incredibly helpful. Thanks in advance.

Follow-up Post:

In support of the theory of me being an idiot, it looks like I posted in the wrong area, any admins please feel free to move to the Defender & General 4x4 Technical Discussions section.

Yeastie (Bstraw's truck) has a Borla muffler and NRP tail section, maybe he can take pix if that helps.

I have a borla. There should be two bolts at the end of the cat y-pipe that the borla bolts on to. Odds are someone cut off the end of the cat y-pipe to put on a different muffler. Buy a new y-pipe Mikey had a good deal on some aftermarket ones when I called (I need to do this too).

cut both ends off (Y-pipe & Borla Catback) and use a 3 bolt flange, measure both ends and order from summit racing.

Here is an example:

Thanks for the suggestions, anyone have a picture of the stock set up so I can verify mine was modified?
