You could try it but I'd recommend getting a new aftermarket can (like Micron, Akrapovic, etc.) . the sound will probably turn out pretty bad compared to an aftermarket & also you'd probably loose HP ?

Plus the hassle of pulling it apart & trying to find bits to go in wouldn't be worth it IMO.

I have heard a 99 R6 with a gutted out pipe. Was not pleasing. Image a D&D pipe crossed with a Hoda civic with a 3" muffler.

I have also heard running the motor without an end can could cause valve issues. The motor needs more back pressure than just straight header.

Oh, almost forgot, welcome to the board.
