Cat delete ?

guys can I remove my cats ? If so how do I sort out the sensors and is it possible to fool the system say with a resistance in place of a lambda sensor ? Or Is there a software delete ?will it have negative consequences?
im not to concerned with the whales in wherever they come from nor do I care about saving the world one decibel at a time, I'm sure they restrict the performance and also they must retain heat?

branjk is an unknown quantity at this point
My understanding is there are 3 cat converters each side. The last one, #3, is the one that can be deleted or exchanged to a lower cell count. It is not monitored and this won’t effect the electronic monitoring. I have not done mine yet but thinking of doing a 200 cell exchange. I have heard the cat delete is rather loud.

Like lilseevs said it depends on the model year.

PNW is on a distinguished road
I deleted the 3rd set of cats on my DB9 and replaced it with a straight pipe from VelocityAP. Noticeably louder and doesn't drone. No impact to emissions monitoring as there is no sensor on those cats. I'm happy with the results and would recommend it.
