Imo not possible. The cat alone is a bitch to remove, the heat shield and sensors are always in the way of something, and if u pull everything though the front im not sure the flex pipes bends will make it possible. gl trying to remove the sensors with the cat pipe still in. 2 days ago I installed my catpipe back in for inspection and my shoulder and neck are still sored

Youll need a +12" extension and a pretty long tq bar to tq it out, and some chuck norris strenght. Soak the bolts in pb the night before and again like 30 mim before trying it. I used a 16" extension if a remember correctly (autozone, like $10)
