Default new mid pipe questions

So finally got my hands on a new mid pipe, MAC P/C. When I do the swap do any of you recommend new O2 sensors? Or just swap over what's there.
Second guessing myself and wanted an outside opinion. Thanks gents!

So, if I do go the route of replacing, Motorcraft only ? Even on Rock Auto, they're 40.00/EA. I saw Bosch, but I believe I've seen in one of the threads on here cause problems.

I found NTK's on Rock Auto, fair price, they confirmed they are made by the same manufacturer on the phone.
I'm having bogging issues after initial start up, it feels like starting off in 2nd or some thing like that. SO, cleaning the AIC, and swap these old O2's out would be a good start I think. Only does it when the car is cold, and not all of the time. Weird stuff.
