yes!:D but.... it is not legal strictly:eek:. If you are sure you wont have to pass some inspection it probably wont be an issue. I would just hollow it out if you can so it still looks like it is there:cool:.

Cat

That is a great idea I will hollow it out. There is not an inspection where I live.
Any idea on how I can hollow it out. Torch,drill or punch.

If it looks like a ceramic honecomb inside you can just us a long punch or rod to break it up just make sure all the loose stuff comes out[ watch the dust it is full of heavy metal ie mask and eye protection]

you can sell it to a metal recycler. There's valuable precious metal baked into the core. That's why they cost so dang much. Platinum, and Irridium.

A reputable metal recycler will requrie your I.D. and vin# so that they know they aren't buying cores from a CAT burgler. You can get 50-100 dollars for a smaller one. Some of the larger cats can be recycled for a couple hundred.

this place will give you an online or over the phone quote and you ship it to them.
