Why not just save the cost on the midpipe and just have a muffler shop cut the cats out, straight pipe it, then go to the scrap yard and make your cost back with selling the cats? why waste all that money on a factory midpipe?
It's less time consuming to swap out the midpipes as opposed to performing the modifications you're suggesting. Most people can do the swap by themselves where as only a few have the equipment and experience required to cut and weld stainless steel pipe.
