I wonder how the VR6 would sound with the same mod ! The big box needs replacing as the the previous owners did some bad exhaust tip welding job on it and I was looking into either replacing it with a clean secondhand one plus new tail tips or just deleting it altogether. I might test the delete first.

Did you just straight pipe though it? My cats are currently bad and I really don’t want to replace them...

Yes its just a straight pipe in place of the cats. Here are couple of pictures. If you notice, the butterfly(red stuff) from the cats are still there, bolted in place. The muffler guy just cut the big round thing instead of unbolting everything from the flex pipe, and he put pipes all the way till pass the trans crossmember just a little bit

Thanks for the pics! I have a similar set up, end muffler is deleted but I do have cats, they’re bad but they’re there .
I am trying to figure out what to do with them, so it’s a straight pipe through the secondary cat?

If they are bad, it might be better to take them off. It cost me $100 to replaced mine with a straight pipe. Yeah a straight pipe in place of the secondary cats.
