if they "sniff " the tailpipe you won't pass emissions , if they require all smog equipment you'd have to hollow one out , don't inhale , if you don't have problems with O2 sensors/codes and the like then it'll run a little better , if you're worried about extra pollution then shut down drive thrus , whats the worst that can happen you'll have to buy the thing anyways ?

You will also fail the visual inspection. There is NO reason to remove the cat unless if plugs up.
