    Just leave the cat in. You drive a 4 banger truck. Nothing you do short of a supercharger is going to make it even slightly faster.

    You can get a more restrictive muffler, but honestly if your truck is throwing codes at you without the cat I'd put it back in. As was said before you're not going to gain any noticeable power, and the extra back pressure from the muffler is NOT going to make the light go away. The code is most likely because it is sensing too much unburned fuel past where the cat should be.

    You don't want to have Back pressure at all.
