as soon as you get a highflow performance cat, you can go ahead and switch over even if you don't have the cat back...you wont be quite as fast without the rest of the catback but you'll still be pushing 15.7 psi which is sweet

How exactally can pieces of the cat get "sucked into the turbo" from the downpipe? Where exactally did you get the idea that there would even be suction in your downpipe at all?

Maybe it's just me, but since there is a prodigious amount of exhaust pushing through the dp all the time (even at idle or between shifts) I would be very interested to know how those cat pieces could make it into the turbo.... Do they swim upstream like trout? Or do your turbines spin in reverse sometimes?

Jus' curious....
