Car Has Dragging/no Power Feel

In the lower rpms the car will bog and jerk rapidly and then once it hits like 3500 rpm I have the "turbo spool" sensation. My muffler hanger broke so I just took it off at the axle is that bad? It's done this before even with the tusdo muffler. Car is stock accept for custom short ram and catback. No cel on dash.

I think he is refering to the entire cat, not just a o2 sensor.

This should throw a code, correct?

Yes, because the rear o2 sensor would pick up the failure of the cat.

If there is a smell of sulfer, it is a cat, regardless if there's a code or not
