The catalytic converter is what you don't want to remove.

So yes you should be able to pass emissions.
A decibel test is a different story...

BTW it's a resonator not resignator. removing it would, make your exhaust loud and raspy.

Not sure I would save up money for those. Money could be better spent on our cars than on expensive exhausts.

yes, if you remove both you'll be fine....as long as you dont take off the cat there's nothing to worry about.

and if you add the price of the muffler 50-100$ plus getting your stock system fabricated at midas taking out the resonator and adding 2 1/4 from the cut back to the muffler to match the mufflers input diamater about a 95$ job plus hangers 5-10$ you are looking at 150$-205$ for twice or less you can get a performance proven quality cat back exhaust with warranty that you are going to end up wanting later anyway.....just my opinion
