Turbo manifold question

OK, so I'm seriously considering getting Tom's stage 1 kit (if I ever get the money saved up.) I recall having read on here that the downpipe replaces the OE cat and the flexpipe (?) So...when rebuilding my exhaust system with a turbo in mind, what parts should I get? I was planning on getting the OE replacement Random Technology cat from McNew's, but if the downpipe replaces it will I need to get the one for the SVT long tube setup? Or am I completely wrong and the turbo manifold just bolts on top of the OE cat?

There ARE turbo kits that don't eliminate the CAT such as GUDE!

Yeah, Gude doesn't eliminate the cat, just your entire motor.
