so instead of buying headers i just want to experiment by just punching out the catalyic converter. i was just wondering if anyone has tried this lol? or is there anyone that sells a de cat pipe that doesnt cost 500 bucks lol.

i have never done this but heard that you could do it.

I've done it on mine and now have it hanging in the garage causwe4 I went with long tubes later down the road. I guess I could sell it, this is the second thread I've seen wondering about a hollowed out cat. I don't suggest doing it if the cat is in good working order. I only did mine cause the innards broke in two pieces and clogged the pipe.

you could always get a cheapo m2 or whatever it is header.... I have one modded to fit the spi. not it's not the best but honestly it lasted and it's still fine right now. not being used but I didn't have an issue with it. those are like under $200.

Do the SVT header conversion ( get one used) and an off road pipe. It will make FAR MORE power
