1.6 TS centre pipe for decat?

Does the 1.6 centre pipe fit as a replacement for the main cat on a 1.9 JTD? I might be way off here but I just saw one for sale on the 156 TI facebook group and wondered if it might be a cheap decat fix until I get a stainless system.

The TS used a smaller bore exhaust.
The Diesels used the same bore as the 2.5v6.

I have been told you can cut open the cat, on a diesel, remove the inner section, leaving an empty space, weld it up again and Bob's your uncle. And that you can then sell the inner section for its rare metals content. If true, wouldn't that make a cheap decat fix ? Opinions ?
