The stuff isn't that expensive. You can get it at any A/P store. I'm a believer in fixing things. You're going to the trouble of doing a head gasket job. I don't think this is going to break the bank.

I really don't know exactly what a 99 looks like but if it's a piece of aluminized flex hose 1 1/2 - 2" in diameter, I've bought several from NAPA and just cut them and bent them to fit. Try this for OEM parts. http://www.1stchevyparts.com/
I guess you could just plug it and try it. If it works for you, go for it.

If header pipe = exhaust manifold

and flex tubing = down pipe... you whould be able to get a new down pipe to Y-pipe section from Autozone or somewhere like that. OEM would last longer but it's probably expensive.

Here's what you do... call your dealer and tell him what you need, ask for the price and part number... go to GMpartsdirect.com and search that part number... I garauntee the price will be alot less than what the parts guy told you and then you'll get OEM replacement for not-that-much-more-expensive than aftermarket junk.

Thats the EGR valve. Its just an emissions based part. You can remove it and the car will drive perfectly normally. You may have slightly worse emissions, but thats will be the only consequence..... Just be sure you plug them up well.
