Glad to hear you managed to get the right part! Keep the forum updated with the results of your work. I never did my own exhaust work, it was always more cost effective to get the right parts and pay a shop to put it in.
Absolutely will update and post as I make progress. I've always done basic maintenance on my cars such as oil, brakes and stuff, but never tackled a project like this and thought it would be a good learning expirience. This is the first car that I've been able to work on that isn't my daily driver, and boy what a relief that is to be able to take my time working on it. I inherited this car from my girlfriend who didn't want to put money into fixing it after having some suspension issues and the odometer maxing out at 299k lol. When she was looking for a new car, I jokingly suggested to buy another Vibe since it'd be so damn realible, and low and behold that's exactly what she ended up doing. Going to tackle the exhaust first then move onto suspension next. I got the new manifold in, and have to fix where the catalytic converter attaches to the resonator next.
