Cat for turbo

I am looking at the FSWERKS kit and am wondering what everyone is doing about a cat to keep it street legal. We don't have emissions testing here, but they won't pass it without a cat.

So, is everyone just going cat-less or is there any particular Hi-flow people are using?

just weld a cat in behind the subframe... it's a little further back but with the heat of the turbo I think it would still actually work just as well.

I clamped in a high flow cat behind the subframe. I am taking it off though. My car is emissions exempt and I inspect it so I think it should pass. Even though it is a cat I don't think it was 50 state legal. I'll probably be posting it up for sale on here when I take it off.
