Default questions about my header install on my 2.5i

I am installing borla uel's and rallisport hfc on my 2.5i and i ran into a few problems while installing it and i need help/advice

1) I totally forgot that my stock header/cat is a one piece and that i didn't a gasket and/or bolts to connect the borla header and rallisport cat. Question is, i can just go to subaru and get those bolts and gasket from a subaru dealership from a 2005 2.5rs, right?

2) Since i didn't finish tonight and didn't feel like un-doing everything i did so at this point i have the new headers on, no cat pipe, and the catback is still there. My question here is, my o2 sensor plugs are hanging in the engine bay disconnected from my o2 sensors which are on the new cat and in my basement. it is supposed to rain here tonight and i'm worried that condensation will screw up the o2 sensor plugs. Its not going to get wet from the rain, i'm just worried about condensation?

Thank you very much for lending your collective opinions. This sucks i just want them on but now i have to take off tomorrow morning to go get the things i'm missing and put them on.

Yes they will have the gaskets, I would go to Lowe's and get Stainless bolts and nuts...ie save money and no rust for the next removal

O2 sensor should be ok, unless it rains Beer. please let me know if that happens.

well the condensation occurs when it's on the car, too. so that probably isnt a big deal, just lay the catpipe like it is on the car so that the O2 sensors are on top (water cant pool on/in the probe).

factory stock hardware and replacement kits are all stainless (my 07 hardware was stainless but the stromung catpipe bolt holes were too small), so reuse the stock springs/hardware if you can.
