Exhaust questions

So, I got into an argument with someone about how many cats are on our v6 mustangs. I'm telling him there are 2, but he insists there are 4.
So my question is, who's correct?
Thanks!

And a secondary question
Would running a quad exhaust, like that of a boss, reduce drone by any means?
And what about dynamat, does that help with drone?

Forged 302 motor and that's all side vented exhaust. So does this mean we are both idiots like I predicted?

No headers. At first I thought about it, then I looked at my build and decided it would be stupid to buy headers twice.
And what do you mean by hang back and function. I'm not sure what you're asking.

Why dont u just buy the headers themselves and get the rest back custom fabricated?

The boss still has the axlbacks and they serve a slight purpose. Are you tying in your axle backs or just running the sides? If you did all side exhaust you'd have two giant holes in te valence.

Well I'm in the exhaust shop now, they're putting in a different type of hanger, and I talked to the owner about the boss style piping. I told him ima change the midpipe to an h pipe, and I asked him how much it would cost to do the side exhaust (I showed him pics of the boss's exhaust) and he said 100-200 bucks.
