Gutting a cat

I gutted my cat but did not weld a piece of pipe inside. Does it make that much difference to have the piece welded in there or not?

Why would you gut your CAT? Just pull it out and throw pipe in its place. You may need the CAT in the future. And if you dont need it for the future then Im sure you could have sold it online to someone who will need it.

afe CAI, MBRP T/B straight pipe, Re-mapped IDM, Wicked Wheel compressor wheel, Mag-Hytec diff cover, Auto Meter Gauges: Trans-Pyro-Turbo, 37"x13.5"x17" Toyo M/T's on Mickey Thompson - Classics, rebuilt suspension and steering (too much to list).

No

Most guys just gut it and leave it like that...no need for a pipe bud

Where I live I have to have one to pass inspection. So taking the guts out it looks like I have one. But I did not know if I need to have a piece welded inside to make the flow better
