cat gut question

I pulled the truck into the barn this afternoon to pull the cat off and gut it. I was able to get the U clamp loose however the clam shell bolts turned out to be a no go. I sprayed the bolts down with some PB blaster to soak for a while. My question is, can I cut the two bolts with a sawzall and replace with two new bolts or is the two bolts part of the clamshell?
I'm gonna gut the cat for now and then later on get a dp and a cat delete section or a new exhaust from turbo back of some sort.

yea unfotunetly they are, i had the same problem, gonna have to get downpipe. What i did was i bought a downpipe that has the flange to bolt up to the cat and a cat delete pipe, so that way if i need the cat in the future for emissions i can pop it on with the new downpipe.
