Do you have a stock down pipe? That is not stainless. It's just regular coated steel. You can weld a universal cat to it with normal MIG welding wire. Just get a decent sized high flow cat. You don't want to go cat-less anyway. They sound like crap without one, smell bad, and pollute. Plus there isn't much power to be gained over a high flow.
