Most seem to cut the stock pipe pretty close to the cat and I'm not sure there's enough tubing on the stock piece to clamp back on.
Aus, I have seen a few that were re-welded. If it is a good clean cut with a good welder I doubt anyone would be hard pressed to tell you had the xpipe cut.
I'm lucky found a used one for $150 awhile back and cut that one up while keeping the one that came on the car.
