Catylic converter removal?

I have a banks monster cat back exhaust with the dual angled tips I love the look of it but it is not as loud as I would like so I want to take the cat off and remove the guts my question is though can I just take off the two clampsthat hold it in place and will it slide right out it the pipe it goes into has slits so maybe I can use a screwdriver to pry them up then try to move it any other options besides cutting it? Thanks

I can't remember if I removed the crossmember or not but getting the cat on and off was easy. Just unbolt it and you may have to pry on it to get it to come out but it isn't bad.

Now beating all that honeycomb out wasn't fun. It's a little dusty... Or so I've been told...

Well I took clamps off for the cat of course they broke but the cat doesn't move any tips to break it free from each side of the Exhaust? Should I take a couple hangers off?

Get some pb blaster or wd40 and spray all the slits in the pipe by the cat and use a rubber mallett or a hammer with a tennis ball on the end.. anything to prevent metal to metal contact, and tap it in a foreward and the backwards motion, and once it gets loose wiggle it side to side and it should come out. Just soak the crap outta it before u try and remove it. Dropping the crossmember is super easy and gives u more room to work.

You should have just went with an MBRP FAL414 dummy pipe and kept your cat intact for emissions and only install it for smog.

Is there enough room to fit a 3.5"-4" increaser with this test pipe? I have a magnaflo cat back and would like a little more tone out of it.

If you want the whistle, pull the muffler off too.

You should be ok with the pinhole, you may smell exhaust in the cab though...
