I think the only major difference on it was the AIR pump. CA cars had it, federals didn't and mine still doesn't. I also have an aftermarket 3" cat that Ys out to duals from there on back. It's legal because the cat has an EO number from magnaflow, and you can do whatever you want after the cat as long as it's not too loud, so I wouldn't worry about your exhaust too much. Having it dump before the rear axle might raise their suspicions, but as long as the cat is there and it's a legal cat and it works, you should be fine.
    Dumping before the rear end will fail mechanical inspection, not emissions inspection. If you sit for too long, the exhaust will get up into the cabin and might cause you to suffocate.
