you could, but then you would need to have the flange welded onto you tube then a hole drilled and a nut fitted for the lamda sensor.. you can pick decats up on here for about £50 quid which will save you alot of messing about and you will still have your cat for mot time
 
  AGH the sl*g
Dont just bodge it wait and do the job propperly plus you wont have the threaded hole fot the lamba

take your time and cut out the cat but leave lamda holes still there thats how mine is just as good as any decat pipe tbh

Bit daft unless you have another CAT for MOT purposes as their like £200+ from most places. Just wait and get a proper one made up Most custom exhaust fabricators will do them for around the £60 - 70 mark

Save up and buy a proper stainless exhaust with sports cat

even if it takes 6 months its better than bodging it :approve:
