You could get some catted or uncatted connector pipes. Or if you wanted to go back to stock, you could find someone who put headers on and still has their OEM cats.

I have a set of stock cats, they're worth $150ish each at the scrap yard, but I hung on to them in case someone else needed them. They were pulled from the car by the PO at 36K, based on the receipt for the headers that are on there now.

What I want to do is knock my cats out, run my manifolds,What do I need to do ,unhook the rear oxy sensors,will this mess anything up?can a hand held tuner tune this combo? as I don't have anywhere around to tune

I would not use a hand-held tuner to accomodate modifications. If you are not close to a tuner try a mail order tuner such as Wait4me tunes. A mail-order tuner can, among other things, turn off the rear O2 sensors, which most folks leave in place to pass visual state inspections.

What darkman said ^^^. Get a mail order tune

I would get the cat replaced under warranty cats are 8/80000

While I would suggest a mail order tune, Good luck trying to get a wait4me tune. I sat here and LS1tech, PMed and emailed for months prior to just going and getting a legit dyno tune from TuneTime in NJ. If you have to chase someone down to GIVE them your money, sometimes its not worth the headache.
