are they a 5 bolt flange???
if so i remember a bloke on another forum saying that 5 bolt flanges are almost exactly the same size as a 3 inch pipe and he just bashed, tack welded and bent his into shape. took about half an hour or so.

If you can wait I'll post up very detailed pics of mine as I did a lot of welding and grinding to smooth out the exhaust flow.

You certainly can but I'm not sure if you need a 3" for a 3.0l. Best for those who have them to answer that
