Is it the actual silencer box that won't fit because of the curved metal plate above it? If so, I wouldn't advise removing it. It's there to keep the heat on the boot floor down. Trimming a it off it may be ok if it's only a small amount.

If it's the metal bar that goes across the width of the car, behind the bumper, that's basically your crash protection.

To make it quieter, not something I hear too many requests for :), you can get a bung which goes in the end. Measure the hole size and see if you can get one online somewhere. My Jap exhaust actually came with one and it's my option to leave it out, although I put it in when the dogs are in the car.
