It is a federal offense to remove it.

Why not just replace it?

It is available in the aftermarket for considerably less. Check around as dealers are always way too high

I did find a universal catalytic converter for less money but it does not have a sensor. Will that be a problem?

Just checked on e bay and the direct fits run around 300-400. Big difference from the dealer
