If you want that, you're going to have to do it to a Gen4, because of the linked brakes on the Gen5s. That's all I got.
To balance this commentary:

If you are intending to do an exhaust, the catalytic is of no concern.
If you are planning a front end swap, I doubt you will have much trouble delinking the remaining rear brakes.
