Question Caddi converter

Ok guys here's what I got, I have a 97 7.3 F250 diesel and I'm wanting to take the Cadillac converters off of it, now my questions to doing this are will it hurt or help my overall performance of my truck, will it be louder, black smoke...etc and will it help with fuel mileage and last would I be better taking it off my self or having it done by someone that actually knows what there doing, I don't want the risk of loosing power I do a lot of hauling so what ever info I can get will be greatly appreciated tks

Help Performance
If muffler is still on it won't be louder you'll just hear turbo a hair more
Will not smoke
You may get one MPG from it
You can hollow it out yourself with a bar, or pay someone. Your choice.
You wont lose any power, if anything you'll gain some. Let that puppy breath!

Well then you would have to weld a pipe back in its place. You can remove the converter and just break the guts out of it

Hollow it, it turns converter into an empty can basically creating a resonator.
