You can take them off, Gut them with rebar and put it back on. It may be easier just buying and putting on an aftermarket one

On my 94 there is a o2 censor right before the cat. I Just gutted mine out and it sounds amazing compared to before. Mine sounds like a TRUCK now. I know years after mine, not sure which ones but they have o2 censors after the cat but I think I read somewhere that you can get around that somehow.
