If you are just going to swap out the cat, just head down to a garage that does exhaust pipes in general, and they'll provide you with what you need - usually at a very affordable price.
If you for some reason need to be able to put the cat back in, they can cut your original exhaust and weld a bolting adapter to it, so that you can swap it out yourself when you need to.

If you are talking about a completely open system (which is what I believe a testpipe is), then I'd suggest you don't.
We tested our 87 NA 2.5 racecar with only one silencer (the one under the front seats) and a straight pipe (2.5") from there out. We were so loud that they didn't mind the Ferrari 360 Modena with race exhaust, and we were flagged for hitting the 110dB mark :-)

Turbo engines need the extra breathing room that a testpipe gives, and the turbo reduces the noise output from the exhaust.

I'll remove myself from your wanted ad now. Just thought I'd share a little experience. Good luck!
