Cat delete question

I already have a 3" down pipe and a 4" cat back exhaust. Now I want to get rid of the cat. My first problem is I can'tfind a shop to do it because they say it is illegal. My second problem is that I do not know how to weld and do not have access to someone that does.

So my question is could I use exhaust straps or clamps to attach the 3" to 4" adapter and 4" pipe to what is already installed. Thanks for any help. I am new at this.

you can have a shop make a pipe for you, without the truck there, and have them bell and slot the ends, and pick up some clamps at your local parts depot, cut out your cat, viola! cat delete.

ITP also sells cat delete pipes. I have one on my truck with my open exhaust.
94-97 Aluminized Cat Delete Pipe

They also have stainless versions.

I agree. Take the cat off, ram a pipe through it, empty. Did it on an old 4.0 Explorer. Cali was at a point where all Cat maintenance at any shop was illegal(until they fixed the new law or some crap). I handled it. Passed smog too!
