Yes but not legal, and if there is an 02 sensor downstream from cat will throw off fuel/air mix trim and your economy and performance will suffer. Not to mention it will be a gross polluter and affect the air we all breathe

Also, your check engine light will constantly be on and you'll never pass an emissions inspection. When you go to sell it you'll have to put one back on anyhow or possibly be fined. Heavily!! HTH. -Jim

I don't know about other States but I do know in Calif. it's considered 'tampering' and Jim is right, you could be fined VERY heavily. Get a cat. Problem solved. Yeah, I know it's easy for me to say -- not my money -- but will save you a lot of grief in the long run
