Yes - taking the cat out or simply gutting it will make it louder .Worse is removing the resonator post cat - this will make it sound like a cheap chainsaw .
The sensor in the cat is the one used to determine if the cat is working properly or not . Removing the cat may cause a CEL or may not (depending on your model) . Your car will still run fine without that sensor.

would i damage the car if it is being driven with the converter shaking?
