Exhaust compatibility 986 base and S

Looking at buying a stock exhaust, midpipes, Bends and muffler from an 01 2.7 base for 01 3.2 S. The system looks identical, us it the same exhaust?

No. It'll bolt-up, but not the same. The S muffler is different from the base models. (twin tips, a little louder from a little less restriction)

I think the mid-pies from the early cars (pre '00) have a smaller bolt-circle at the header-flange, even though it's the same diameter pipe. this shouldn't be a problem with the '01 parts.

to be clear, bolts up and works, no CEL and such, just a little more restrictive?

Well, I've never done it.... but yes.
The midpipes and u-pipes are exactly the same. All sensors are prior to the muffler, of course.
