California Emmisions Diffence Besides GPCM

Does anyone now if there are any other differences between a California Emmisions 7.3 and a non Cali other than the use of the Glow plug control module. I live in Maine and you wouldn't think I have a 03' is a Cali truck, stumped me when I found out.

Does your cat have a typical O2 sensor installed in it? If so where are you going to install it once you get a new exhaust? Weld a bung onto you new exhaust?
