What's the difference between the oem part

There isn't a difference. However if you're in California, you may want to ensure that you have the correct part number or you won't pass inspection. https://ssl.arb.ca.gov/PartsSearchTool/CatalystSearchTool.aspx

Well I found one and it said it's good for California emissions.

Make sure they'll ship it to California, AND use the link I provided to confirm that the cat is valid for California usage-- trust me

Engine codes can be looked up at https://arb.parts/Test-Group-Engine-Family
