Put it back on your car when you sell it. Let the next person who buys your car pass emissions.
If your trade in your car to a dealer the dealer is obligated to resell your car to the next person with the emissions system intact. The dealer is going to want to see both cats installed.

the funny thing is I traded the car in to the main mazda dealership in riverside. they actually gave me an extra 1000 dollars for trading it in that day. i told them i need to take all my mods off. I was stoked! they wanted to sell me a car right then and there. so now I have this Cat that i dont need.

Yeah the catalytics has platinum in there, I know some ghetto areas they would literally crawl under there and saw off your cat, somehow extract the platinum and sell it for a good amount of money. I remember I had to replace the main cat on my frontier once and it was $1500 from the dealer just for the part alone!
