Sorry to hear, your best bet is just to revert to stock downpipe and throw in the stock airbox. Sounds a lot of work, but really not that bad. Probably 2-3 hours max, if you haven't done it before.

Yeah that's what I have to resort to... I got quoted 200 to put the stock downpipe on and then another 200 to put my 42DD downpipe back on. So 400 total. would anyone be willing to install it for me for less?

If you have a space to work, or if a friend does, this would be worth doing yourself. It's relatively easy and you save $400 in exchange for a few hours of your time. There are many tutorials for installing a downpipe.

Honestly might actually make the drive at this point lol. Is it fine if the catback is welded to the downpipe?
