Catalytic converter question

what's inside of a catalytic converter?...is it something I can just pull out or something by unbolting the exhaust behind it and beating the $hit out of it and pulling pieces out with some pliers?...haha

You can get a delete pipe from Ford for a stock system, but yes you can beat the insides out of a cat. They claim its not as good as a straight pipe because of turbulance, but there should be some HP benefit, and it will sound better.

yah, it will sound pretty much the same as a straight if its gutted vs putting a delete pipe in there..

as far as clearing it out on the truck.. I have no clue ... I've always seen it taken off and then shove a pole thru it or something.. but my brothers old 5.7 chevy they just whacked it with a hammer several times until you could hear crap rattling around then gunned the throttle and shot that crap out the tailpipe
