Yes it would, I put a 36" long glasspack (basically the same thing as a resonator) and it got rid of my raspyness and made it so much more tolerable now. Kicking myself in the butt for not doing it sooner. I do have inspections in my area but I have been passing for 7-8 years now with no cat with no problem. Has long as the Check Engine light isn't on you should pass, unless they stick a sniffer up your tail pipe like they do on pre 96' model years you should be fine, but you should check what they do in your area to be sure. You could always by a universal cat or a high flow universal cat if you need to. Personally I would just throw a resonator on it. I believe the biggest one you can fit is either a 4" or 6" round one on the strait section of the exhaust. Some have even put two there before. If you do put one make sure it's at the front or back section of that pipe encase you want to add another one to quiet it down even more.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
