Is this a cat???

well, i am in the process of shortening my exhaust and taking out the muffler...and I think i have a cat , sits right where the downpipe bolts to the exhaust.....kinda of a short fat muffler with heat sheild all around it.....feels and sounds solid when you bang on it with a hammer......is this is a cat? and if it is, is it harder or easier to gut than a reg gasser cat? BTW, its a 95

thanks in advance!

It is pretty easy to gut. I have never gutted a gasser cat but I used a piece of black pipe to punch it out with. It makes a mess but nothing a broom and dust pan won't clean up. I deleted my muffler at same time and in total I could feel a quicker spool and an increase in mileage. It sounds pretty good too.

Just unbolt it from the down pipe and cut it at the muffler so you have a 4-5 ft section and get a buddy to hold up and get to work on the gutts. That way you have a cat installed for the purposes of inspection.
I took the 90 bend from the rear and welded it in place of the muffler so it exits in front of the tire. It is my redneck straight pipe mod. You can see it in my sig pics.
