Way to go, moron.
Last I heard, we as end users don't need to meet federal standards like the manufacturer does. Only local standards.

HA, on my old 3L I just unbolted it at the mid section and put one bolt back end just to hold them together so I would be strait pipe ish. You guys know what I'm talking about I'm sure. It was awesome. Loud and annoying and went know where. lol Now I love quite. Stock exhaust all the way on this truck. Although I still wanna do the exhaust cutout just for kicks to use every once in a while. But ehhh to much effort.

Does removing the last cat make you have an effect on emissions testing? If its just a resonater like you guys say, than its shouldnt. Been thinking of doing this, but dont wanna drop$$$$ on repairing If i fail the next emissions test!!

Im not sure, I gutted mine because my county doesnt need emissions testing. Just a gas cap test.

No...just no. There is nothing about this statement that is remotely correct. You should have just let the argument die, dude.
