Safe to temporarily take off cats

I've purchased some cat delete pipes and I was wondering if I'd be safe to install them without a tune just to see how they sound. I want to judge for myself if I think it's too loud for my neighbors and current exhaust setup before I go all out on a tune for them. So without a tune, would I be okay with driving it around for about 30 minutes? Thanks for the help! 63K miles

You technically don't need a tune for them, you will just have a cel.

You will have a CEL and the car will dump fuel to cool off the cats which are no longer present. But for a 30 minute drive it will be fine.
