Sure you can remove the catalytic converter join the two sections of tailpipe together, and the vehicle will run just fine.

But that is definitely illegal, and earns you a pretty hefty fine, or maybe other penalties, and you STILL have to restore the original configuration.

Not on the newer cars...the engine computers are so precise it will pick up the difference in back pressure and may not run right or might not get good gas mileage. Of course if you know what you are doing you can reprogram the computer/replace the stock chip with a tunable chip..
