Remove a section of ex pipe

I need to remove the section of pipe after the down pipe without damaging it so I can install the kitty and then re-install the pipe. I put a Diamond Eye 4" TB on last year and should have taken the time to put the cat on then but didn't. Ideas? Thanks.

do you need the cat for smog or something?
otherwise leave it off.
i tried t pull the pipes apart after clamping them and it was a no go.
hopefully someone has a solution.

Good luck getting them apart once the pipe gets crimped by the clamps its almost impossible to get them apart with out damaging them. you will probably have to cut the pipe and get some female short sections. I had this problem last year when MBRP sent a pipe with the wrong bend.

Band clamps. Cut the section out and band clamp the cat back in.
