California Smog and cats

Ok so i have my Smog check due in a few weeks. the previous owner hollowed out the cats (dick). so my question is can i use the stock h pipe from a 93 gt and bolt it up to my stock 94 gt for Smog purposes. If the fit is different what can i do to make it work (if it can). seems like nobody in sacramento has an h pipe for the 94-95 5.0s. Any help would b appreciated. Thanks

If you can't find any exhaust with cats in time you could always find a smog place that will take $150-200 to pass you. I know if you buy the exhaust new it will be well over that.

They chagned for 2000 and up cars, now if your car is 2000 or up you no longer need the tail pipe test, they just check the computer to make sure everything is working properly.
