    how did it snap?
    could it be welded or did it snap from excessive rust?

    maybe ring all your mates and see if they know anyone with a welder that could help you out.
    a slab goes a long way.

    shouldnt be too hard.
    pretty sure its a flanged joint at each end.
    exhaust manifold - flange - pipe - flange - cat

    should just be 4 bolts to get the section of pipe out.

    i pulled it off today, the pipe flares and has a bracked that fastens it to the manifold. the cat it joined to the same peice of pipe and has a flange that connects to the rest of the system just after the cat. is this what you have ??? im really keen to find one tonight so i can drive to work tomorrow...
