EGR to OBX Headers Question

I have a 92 Acura Legend LS sedan with stock manifolds currently. I recently gave in & got the OBX headers & the rest of a 2.25 exhaust setup. I took it to a local shop today to get an estimate & the mechanic said he wouldnt be able to do an installation of the headers because they have nowhere to plug up the EGR valve. The headers do only have holes for the O2 sensors. Ive read plenty of posts of fellow legend owners installing these with no problems, so is this true? & if so whats the best & easiest ways around this? Thanks ahead of time!

That's a pair valve. My recommendation is to put a type two intake Mani on.
Also u need to find a mechanic that actually knows wat he's working on

1st of all, thanks for the fast reply. 2nd, is the pair valve of major importance? Or could I just bypass it & install the OBX headers anyhow? Thanks

Oh no, I didnt mean any disrespect. Just learning. Thanks for the help man, I'll start lookin for a type 2 manifold. Would I need anything else or just the stock type 2 intake manifold?
