Normally the warranty on the cats is 8/80 but there is now an extension for certain vehicles to 10/120:

Special Coverage Adjustment

The customer should not be charged for performing the diagnostic check when it is determined that the catalytic converter is not the cause of the Malfunction Indicator Lamp. A labor code has been provided to submit claims for such diagnosis. Any additional necessary diagnosis and repairs that are not related to the catalytic converter are not covered by this special coverage. The customer should be informed that any further service that is not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty will not be covered by this special coverage.

x2 on the straight pipe, complete waste if you spend 1700$ at the dealership, try even finding one on ebay and going to a local to see how much it'll cost for installation.

Assuming the car does not qualify for the warranty extension I'd take it up with GM directly since you are just barely past warranty. They have been known to cut deals with owners in such circumstances. Especially if the symptoms started while in warranty. 82k is pretty poor performance for cats unless engine problems were ignored. You can start here & ask for customer service:
