Would like to get this rectified as soon as possible since I think that is the reason for the oil smell. Any of you guy's run the HKS 409 Equal Length headers? (https://shop.bostonmotorsports.com/H...ld_p_1347.html ) or know a place to pick up OEM headers?

I figure since I plan on doing the Tsudo Catback exhaust I might as well get aftermarket headers. Any input would be great, thanks.
It's prob not separated. The heat shields from the header work as a compartment for the cat pipe to sit into. The bolts that hold the oem header to the cat pipe are also built into the header the only way for it to separate is for it to shear the bolt off or the entire stud itself.

If it has I have a set of oem headers up for sale. I'll post a pic of the oem header connector when I get home.
