The best thing to do is buy headers with the EGR fitting in them, you won't see much of a power boost with shorties on the stock Y-pipe and cats though.

Huh? The EGR gets its feed from an exhaust crossover in the intake manifold.

The O2S should be plugged way down somewhere in the y-pipe, so shortys will replace4 the stock irons lickety split (its what I did on my truck using FMS parts)

shorties, bassani y pipe with hi flow cat , your choice in muffler and the 3" maramount tail pipe section that you can get from any autozone for under $40. you can then use either clamps to put this setup together or take to a shop to have welded up.

if you go long tube headers your y pipe will need redone anyway.
