Why do you want to gut the cat? You're not going to see a noticeable gain in performance, and you'll be spewing a lot more emissions.

If you don't have any sensors after the cat, I think you should be okay. I suppose it's possible you'd see the CEL but I don't see how if your only o2 sensor is before that cat. You might want to wait for more opinions, but I think the truck would run okay.

What worked wonders? Was it clogged or did you just leave it off?

Depending where you live if you have yearly inspections you could leave it off

We have them but some places don't bother even looking at the vehicle they just want the 12 dollars
