help Catalytic Converter Emissions here

Ok i have looked at a few threads and no one has really answered the question So I moved from Texas I live in Centennial Co. now with is Arapaho County. I have a 4 inch exhaust on my 6.0 I dont have a Catalytic Converter on it. So I called a place and they say I have to have one.
I see trucks all day long with 4 and 5 inch exhausts on there trucks so how is it that they are passing emissions with there exhaust?
Also what am I suppose to do put an smaller Catalytic Converter on my truck? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of having a performance exhaust ?

if your real good at welding you can cut off the clamps off of your stock cat and widen the whole... then weld that to the new cat so its all bolt on...

Yeah I'm not good at welding so I took one of the sections out ( while I was installing BPD oil kit) and had a local welding shop weld it on for me....
