a catback wont affect smog at all
and you will be able to pass smog if you have the oxygen sensor thing for the header and your intake will need the sensor thingys too
when you buy the mod, it will telll you that its "Fully 50-state street legal and CARB exempt", or something similar to that
and keep your stock catalytic converter so you can pass smog

You must have the exemption sticker for the intake and header viewable. since the EO number on it has to be recorded on the smog inspection.

I think the answer for any of this depends on where you live. California? If so then you should probably put the stock intake back on because that's real easy to do. Every other state has different rules & different ways of doing things.
