Can I install cats to long tubes ?

I have got long tubes cats delete. As far as I know cats will work when the gases temperature is high enough, that is why cats are installed close to the engine.
Can I install cats to my long tubes in the mid pipe ? will it work ? ( see attached picture ) Should I install O2 sensors to the cats ? At this moment rear O2 sensors are disabled.

Install the cats into the midpipe. I don't no your situation of your trying to pass emissions or clean up the sound. If you have a tune that has the o2 sensors turned off and your trying to clean up the sound you could just install them and be on your way or you could install the o2 sensors and turn them back on if your trying to pass emissions.

I am not sure how emissions work in your area, but here in Cali, L/T will fail the visual. The cats will help clean-up and deepen the sound.

I put them on my x-pipe to clean up the sound. I just cut the sections out of the mid pipes and clamped them on. I took my car to a muffler shop and had them welded in to ensure that I had no leaks. It only cost $40 to get them welded. A small price for peace of mind..

RWHP/RWTQ is adequate

They wont work as they have to be hot to do any good. So if emissions is your goal mid pipe cats is a waste of money. I imagine there are cheaper resonators to put in the mid pipe if sound control is your goal.

No reason why it will not. That is the location that the long tube catted H from JBA and others.

They should still work. LTs get very hot and that's what it takes to make cats work.

Looks like the OP wants to put them up near the hearder/exhaust gasket area. I would think that would the ideal place.
