Those "shorty" headers have been found to do very little in any gains. Be prepared for a very loud exhaust if you are running with very little back pressure / muffler in the rest of the exhaust. Why are/do you want to pull the CAT?

The companies that do make an off road pipe usually expect a full length header. Pulling the CAT alone will not make nearly as much performance as pairing the off road pipe with a good header
