The engine management light should not come on as the sensors for it are immediately in front and behind the cat at the front of the system so will not detect anything behind the downstream one.
I would however suggest that the item you have circled is not actually a cat but another box, possible a resonator, possibly a silencer (muffler). I would also question the reason for removal as I don't think that there will be many gains...
