Default 2.3 exhaust manifold

So I have search this for some time and can't seem to find what I need. I have a 97 with the 2.3 the flange were the cat bolts up to the manifold is rotted away. The rest of the exhaust is still in good shape. Is there a way of fixing this with out having to buy a new cat section? Also does anyone make a cat less down pipe? I don't have to do Emission so I would to ditch the cat.

Default Re: 2.3 exhaust manifold

I would think you could take it to an exhaust shop and have the bad section cut out and a new piece put in.
