Default Replacing cat??

Hey my cat is gone in my 88' blazer, and i was wondering if it would be ok to just replace it with a piece of pipe. There is no emissions where i live so that is not a problem and i really dont want to spend the money on a new one if i can just replace it with a piece of pipe. Is there any down sides or ups to doing this??

my brother did it on his 97 s10 and it made him have no back pressure, and he only got 13 mpg instead of 20+ mpg.

Any recomendations on a new one?? would a high flow give me any more power or milage??

get a catco universal converter from summit. i put one on my old k5 blazer and on my escort. they both passed emmissions and ran great. they are only around $60 i think. if you go for a direct fit, then they will run you some more $$
