From the bottom this parts diagram from shows the exhaust routing from the engine back to the rear muffler (shown top right).

From the exhaust manifold lies the first catalyst, if equipped the secondary catalyst is located immediately behind this first one. (PZEV and California spec Emissions vehicles only afaik). Then comes the first resonator/ muffler, then more piping, a secondary small muffler, and then the lunchbox out the back.
