no, your exhaust won't smell bad. you'll just smell some unburnt fuel. you shouldn't be back there sniffing it anyway. a high flow cat should help if it's a bottle neck in the system after you replace the header, pipe after the cat, and muffler.

On my old '97 SL2 I had the headers, SPS cat-back exhaust, and a Flowmaster Delta Muffler. I also had a flanged straight-pipe made where I could unbolt the cat and slip in the straight-pipe for "off-road" purposes.
After deleting cat: Exhaust smelled great like old muscle cars, noticeably louder exhaust, about 0.2 sec quicker in the 1/4 mile (measured at a dragstrip), and improved fuel economy on the highway by 2-3MPG at 70MPH. It passed emissions to (although the NO emissions were borderline high).
Just remember this is illegal and should not be used on the street.
