2001 bugeye wagon Decat lambda advice if poss please!

Guys got a s/h front decat section exhaust off fleabay and the lambda sensor has a bolt in it. Do I remove the bolt and put my sensor in? If no, what do I do with my sensor & if you say disconnect how do I get my eml out assuming it will come on?
Also is OEM exhaust gaskets the way to go?

Thanks!

Put it into the decat pipe. You will need a remap to run a decat. Genuine gaskets are the best

Thanks Shambles. Top man!
These are the bits I have got so far. Do you see any problems?
Front pipe was on an 04 STI but the guy doesn't remember the make as someone nicked the back section. Middle bit is off a new age so should be OK except I'm not sure if I need that bit now because of the front section
Back box, Im thinking prodrive as I don't want it loud and I dont want a big fat tailpipe. I really want to try and keep the stock look. A friend who's an engineer said he could take the restrictions out of my standard back box. Do you think that would work?
Cheers guys!

Youre right - you won't need the second bit. I have a prodrive on mine and it not too loud
