Just and idea.... What do yall think ???

Ok so me and a buddy the other day were just talking and some how got onto the topic of catalytic converters... Well since here in AZ we do have to run our cars through emissions either every year or two years it hard with high flow catalytic converters blah blah.... Well to make a long story short we got the idea of just taking off the catalytic converter and replacing it with just a straight piece pipe.... and instead of actually welding the pipe back on like the catalytic converter, we would add bolt ons to the actual exhaust pipes etc. where normally the catalytic converter would go, then all that would be needed to pass emissions would be a quick replace of the catalytic converter.... so here is what i am unsure about... #1 would this hurt or damage the car in anyway ??? My stang is my baby and would do absolutely nothing to hurt it.... #2 would this be too loud ?? would it be to noticeable to where possibly a police could ticket me ??? haha i definitely do not need any more of those haha #3 would the actually give me better air flow and maybe even possibly be a benefit to the car ???? well im only 19 and dont know everything about cars and would appreciate the help and info if anyone could help me out ;D let me know what yall think... Thanks

Just make sure you take your time. Do it SLOW and do it RIGHT. There's few things that can Be as annoying as jankey exhaust work and constantly fighting leaks and issues I've screwed around with exhaust when I shouldn't have before and had leaks and god damn is it annoying lol

It just replaces your stock pipe with one without cars. So basically replacing the whole pipe. Than you would loose the benefit of being able to just bolt the cats back up. Youd have to swap the whole pipe.

It's just called an offroad because it's pretty much not street legal anywhere lol

Well, looking at American Muscle, it looks like the 2005-2009 stangs don't have bolted coupling on the exhaust after the H like the previous years. I think your originally posted plan is your best option for what you want to do.

The pic looks to be a stock setup. The two football'ish shaped items close to the engine are the cats. Looks like you straight pipe section will need a slight bend up toward the engine. Hopefully, you have some room for a coupling so you can swap like you wanted.

Yea maybe possibly even cutting a bit lower then the actually bend ... I'll have to have my mechanic take a look at te structure of the pipes and see what he thinks...

Don't hack your exaust up. As stated already, buy an off road pipe that bolts right in.

I am thinking the same thing. I have an OR x-pipe on my 06GT and I think it sounds incredible. But I will need to put some cats on before Jan when I need an inspection.
