The biggest thing im stessing is just getting through the border with how loud the cars is. Headers,no cats, with loud aftermarket exhaust and to top it off cammed. Most people say they dont look at or care about the car but hard to miss it when shes that loud haha. :/

Not an issue honestly. Don't sweat that, nobody gives a ****. Turn off the car at the booth when speaking to the CBSA guy if you wanna be really polite.

I agree with Jackie N. not an issue.

If it is stressing you regardless another reason to trailer it.

What are emission requirements in your province? If any; can a car pass with no cats?

No emissions testing here in Alberta
As long as there is no check engine light on from removed 02 sensors or something. Anyone know if there is 02 sensors after the cats or just the ones before?

I strongly suspect that the seller tuned the car and in doing so the tuner tuned out potential check engine warnings. Mine did!

Maybe ask the seller if it is on?

If it is on; what you can do is use a diagnostic scan tool and clear all of the codes before the inspection. Disappears like magic!
