If the cat is empty, why replace it? I would die to get a shell of a cat! We have hella emissions tests here in VA. Luckily, where I live in VA we don't have to commit to the test. But that won't last long...
I'd replace everything but the cat. Just my .10, cause my .02 is free!
After I found out that it was empty (free flowing) I came to the same conclusion.
I will still probably change it out when I do the exhaust just to keep the sound smoother and under control as well as prevent any remaining scraps from embedding in the new muffler, just in case.
I'll keep it around after I pull it off. Maybe it will end up in *cough* your mail *cough*!
