Not sure what you mean by weld one on.. you make it sound so easy.

Where would they need to weld it at? Between the Headers and my Cat back?
They would probably need to cut a section out for it correct?

The shop I went to for my cat back, they were a holes.....

If you have a cat already why are you worried about emitions and being leagal? If you have a cat back you should be fine. a cat on your exhaust should be good for emitions.

I am gonna need to have a Meow-Meow installed next month sometime, I gotta do registration in June. I had my tuner turn off the 2nd O2 sensor, but before I did that, I had installed the header and built a cheater to fool the computer. I can show you how to build one (it's actually really simple.)

*EDIT*
Please list any items that you are wanting to sell in the Buy-Sell-Trade Forums and not in the Regional Forums. Thanx.

Dunno. I have the long tube 4-1 headers, and flex. I have seen a small cat installed just after the first bend up, before the bend under the transmission tunnel. I have also seen it installed further downstream (though it may take longer for the cat to 'heat up'..) I have seen some generic high-flo cat's for under $200, and might have a shop build me a custom pipe that I can install when I need to pass the sniffer.

The other option is to "modify" one of the SVT style replacement ones some of the shops sell.
