    you could possibly do that, the only problem is clearance, the cats have to go in certain places or else there just literally isn't enough room under the car. our headers are already low enough as it is is, so unless you can find a cat with a diameter less than about 4.5", its gonna be tough

    Run two Magna Flow high flow cats right off the Headers to your y pipe, summit has them for around $80 ea. you may need to get the rear o2's tuned out (frost mail order tune)$150 then no SES light, and you should have more than enough ground clearence .
