There was a thread a while back about removing the canister thing. Do a search and you will probably find it.

To remove your catalytic converter,you need to cut your muffler ,remove everything,pack it with some racing type muffler material ?,and weld it back.Or simply get a racing type muffler.

I thought about it too, but determined it was more trouble than it's worth with no power or mileage or weight savings gains. Except of course, replacing that gawd-awful muffler.
