Strait Pipe Question

I am wanting to remove my muffler and Cat for the fact of wanting to improve my fuel mileage. Is there any reason that I cant (or shouldn't) just go and get a piece of replacement pipe and exhaust claps and just cut out the muffler and cat and clamp in a the new section of pipe?

The reason not to do that is the complexity of what you will have to do. It would be best to buy a cat delete pipe so that you can switch it out easily.

But you can do the muffler your way.

Thank you very much. Being a poor college kid money is sparse so walking out an buying a whole exhaust kit is really tough. Thank you

I removed my entire exhaust and ran a 4 inch downpipe into four inch MRBP straight pipe. Picked up about 1-2mpg according to the lie o meter. Cant run straight pipe everywhere but here in NJ there is no mechanical inspection anymore and no emisions for diesels so no worries... only thing this state has gotten right

You dont think ditching the CAT first would be better? Lower EGTs? I know the muffler sucks. Just thinking about lower EGTs?
