The manifold and pipes, yes. be careful on the cat itself. too much heat there will melt your catalyst material and destroy its functionality.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

The heat shields on cat converters are to keep them from starting fires not to keep them warm.
