Help me plug the leak...

So the other day my exhaust started sounding like sh*t. I started it up in my work parking lot yesterday and located a leaking exhaust joint, between my muffler and cat. After jacking up my car and unbolting it I pulled the joint apart and 20 little pieces that were once the gasket fell out.

I went to Schucks and autozone by me, and neither could help find a replacement gasket. I attached (hopefully, it was my first time) a picture of what the gasket looks like that I made in paint, though I am not sure of the exact size since it was in pieces (I can measure my exhaust pipe today, I just have to wait until my lunch break.) I'm pretty sure it's either 2.25" or 2.5", but I could be wrong.

Can anyone help me find one of these gaskets? I have a Greddy Evo2 catback.

Thanks in advance guys!

Cameron
