Remove Clogged Catalytic converter?

Hello, so my 2012 1.8l LS Cruze @ 130k miles just threw the "low efficiency" catalytic converter code. Chevy says I need a new one and it would be $700+ but I'm thinking of straight piping it because I'm getting rid of this car next year, is that possible without buying an exhaust manifold? It looked like the Cat was in the downpipes right after the upstream o2 or is that just fooling me and it's actually behind the down stream o2 in the middle of the car?

If the 2015 doesn't fit take a look at a 2011-2014 that was "totaled" in a rear end collision. The cats should be fine in this case.
