You have to give it more than a couple hours for a response. Your original post was posted when most people are at work. As for your idea, the cats aren't really the problem. They flow enough that just replacing the y pipe is much easier and cheaper. Also, I believe some states are still strict when it comes to high flow cats being installed. The pricing for something like that would be expensive, not because of the y pipe but because high flow cats aren't cheap. That's why people go with just they y pipe cause it can be gotten for something like $20

I work at a car dealership in texas we dont really have the crazy restrictions my old car was so far from street legal....for over 5yrs......high flow magnaflow cats are like 45-60 bucks each that x2 puts you at 120 retail plus the pipe work.I would have thought a vendor would have fabbed up a bolt in piece i guess the 2012s just dont have the market share yet.I know someone makes a pipe for the older trucks that some people say will fit others say no..

Just remembered that there are a couple companies that make what you're talking about. But the main use for them is when people upgrade to LT headers and need to replace the stock cats and y pipe because of space. I know ARH makes a catted mid pipe for the 4th gens. There may or may not be another company that does as well.
