Default Exhaust snapped

So I noticed on my way to work this morning that my car sounded really loud. I love the boxer rumble and all, but this was obnoxious. I just got in from the garage and discovered that my exhaust snapped just after what appears to be the resonator (the longer, narrower chamber in the middle of the car).

The bolts on the cover are rusted pretty bad and just crumble, so I'm waiting to pull them off. I am planning on getting some sort of generic clamp from an auto parts store tomorrow to hold it together unless anyone else has a better idea.

If you can find the appropriate diameter band-style clamp, that will work for the short term, but really you need to just replace the mid-pipe. Looks like a generic replacement is ~$80 on rockauto.com.

Used STi catback should solve the issue nicely. I bought mine for $80 from a friend. Bolts right up.

I do have a used WRX exhaust that I picked up for a project a while back, but I was under the impression that the flanges were different.

I think the only difference is the pipe diameter.

I'm pretty sure the midpipe and axleback should bolt right up without needing the flanges rotated on an 02.

Also pretty sure that they both are 2.5"

I checked last night and the flange does need to be rotated. Hopefully, I can get an adapter made up this weekend to put the WRX exhaust on.
