cat guts

How do you knock the guts out of a cat (not feline)?

Now, that act is illegal and should not be attempted in any way, shape, or form.
However, hypothetically speaking of course, you were to have this long metal bar (such as a "tamper" - available at Home depot or Lowes). And you were to have you Catalytic converter removed from the vehicle, solely for the purpose of exhaust repair, of course. And say that you left that catalytic converter in a position where that long metal tamper were to fall into that catalytic converter with some force (repeatedly). Well, we all know that this would require the immediate replacement of the damaged and hollowed out catalytic converter before we could legally operate our motor vehicle on the public roads of this great Nation of ours.
Lets hope that replacing your catalytic converter isn't necessary and you heed my warning to keep these two objects away from each other.

yes, this is of course for educational purposes only. however, lets assume for the moment, I do not own a airhammer or a tamper. would would be the best way using commonly found tools (perhaps a drill?) and a more in depth description of the procedure.

Funny stuff. Yea, you just have to knock everything out. Once on a very low dollar Mustang street 5.0 build (back in the day). I had a shovel handle that fell into the cat many times. It took everything out. Drilling or anything like that will just make a mess. You have to knock the stuff out.

Yes, I know the feeling, I had a piece of 3/4" electrical conduit fall in my '97 F-250 Cat repeatedly ruining it! Of course, I removed it from the truck for it's yearly polish job!

Yeah I remember performing PM on my exhaust system with the cat leaned up against the wall and suddenly the handle from my floor jack for some reason mysteriously rammed the guts of the cat over and over... Don't know what possesed it but the cat was much lighter afterwards. Weird
