Default 1997 Special Edition exhaust - pre-cat parts?


I am having trouble finding any parts to replace the exhaust system on my accord special edition. It is obviously different from any of the other trims out there. A 13" cat converter, 12" intermediate pipe, and a weird front pipe. Any options besides OE sites where I'll spend over $1.5k for 3 pieces of pipe? Thanks for any input, I'm totally stuck.

The special edition exhaust is like the LX trim. Walker and other aftermarket makers have the parts for less. You can check out places like Rockauto.

Some of the Walker exhausts pieces: Walker 52192 (front pipe), Walker 51033 (front exhaust pipe), Walker 16067 (Converter - Non-CARB). Even Amazon has it.

Well that is exactly what I just bought and it doesn't fit, too short. Attached is a picutre of the front pipe and woven intermediate pipe (12" long) and the start of the cat (13" long). The OE sites have the woven pipe, etc. on their diagrams which I can't seem to find anywhere else online. Any thoughts? Do I have a weird exhaust? Sorry pretty new to this.

Ok, so this may be a CA system? If that's correct, anyone know how to make aftermarket parts fit for this? I'm not in CA and the car didn't come from there. Or should I just have someone bend pipe for it? Thanks.
