your cats are in your midpipe so going with a cat back wont do anything.

cat problem

if i were you find a muffler guy that will just run pipes were the cats were. you can either get o2 senser plugs on ebay to plug into the o2 sensers or some muffler guys will drill and put the senser right in the pipes. the cats are very expensive.....

If your cats are clogged, they should be replaced. Hows the emissions laws at your place? American Muscle has some nice mid pipes with high flow cats... Check the tech area :bigthumbsup

If they're plugged you're at risk of blowing your motor. Stop driving it until it's fixed.

Replacing the cat-back won't solve the problem, you'll miss it completely. I'd replace them with high flow cats :gringreen

I would just use this as an excuse to get an h or x pipe with or without high flow cats, it'll work much better, add some power and sound, and it won't cost anymore because you can install it yourself rather than paying someone to fix it with back to stock. Don't drive it until you get it taken care of, you can cause some bad problems like that.
