Sounds like you have it covered. I'd check the EGR valve to make sure the vacuum line is in good shape. My Dodge barely failed a roadside check of the 2500 RPM NOX because the 23 year old micro vacuum line to my EGR rotted. You can also check the general efficiency of the cat with an infrared thermometer. Lot of info on the web on how. Good luck.

Thank you so much. I forgot about the egr valve. I will let you know how it goes.
