    I would have said the cat is plugged up but you said you pulled it and checked it .. i would recommend you check the computer and see if the ground from it is good .. also check for any other grounds on the car to see if any are loose or corroded.

I too would have pointed my finger at a plugged exhaust. When you dropped the exhaust did you try to drive around the block? If not, give it a go. It will be loud as heck but it will totally eliminate a plugged exhaust. keep in mind that the computer won't like it and will go into a default running mode, but it will still tell you whether the exhaust is a problem or not.
