Catalytic converter queeery

When did Ford start installing cats on the superdoots that were to be sold in CA?

I have an 02 that was originally sold in CA. I bought it from a dealer in Oregon and brought it back to Ca. The previous owner installed a 4 inch from the turbo back. The muffler consists of a bulge in the exhaust pipe, but there is no cat. I don't know if it came with one from the factory. I only ask because they are going to start smog inspections next year and I want to know if I should get a cat while I can afford it.

02 F-250
7.3 6 speed manual
6637
Zoodad
4" from the turbo
Cat delete
Foil delete
Clearance lights
Much more on the way...

I found out in another thread that if it was supposed to have a cat, there'd be a sticker under your hood that would say "Catlyst" & if it isn't, it say "Non-Catlyst".
