Well That'd be my next step as mentioned above to check the back pressure at the upstream 02 sensor.

Your exhaust should not be that hot and is an indication of a restricted catalytic converter.

Yes you can hollow it out but there is another option. Check the local prices at the local scrap yards and see what the old cat is worth. If you find a good one you'll get around $100-$125 for a large domestic converter. An aftermarket replacement can usually be found for less than you'd get for the old one. But do the research FIRST.

You may actually make a profit by changing the cat.
