wow great find first off , looks like the weld the EGR tube onto the header.

I would suggest getting OEM manifold gasket and as well as exhaust gasket.

if your o2's are fine, I would suggest you use the ones off your car now , make sure to use anti-seize paste on the threads. hopefully these bolt up with your oem Y pipe

Racingline has a y-pipe that's a direct fit. I believe Cattman does as well but I think I remember something about the company going out if business or that one item being discontinued.

The OEM exhaust manifolds stretch all the way down to the lower frame area. The bolts at the end connect to the OEM y-pipe. Aftermarket y-pipes essentially have the same shape, so it's a direct fit. I believe some members had minor fitment issues that required some extra elbow grease, but nothing major from what I recall.

Search around for exhaust mods, you'll find some pics for reference.
