Default Looking for a test pipe

I've got the FMII going in, and I have a RB exhaust. The only thing stock that'll be left, is the cat. It's too big and clunky under there, with the Butterfly brace in place. It's so big and in the way, I have the brace set down all the way so that I can fit it in there without the cat rubbing (it still goes *THUNK* on some turns..) and I bottom out on the brace because of this. So..

Anyone know where I can find a test pipe to eliminate the cat? I'd use Ebay, but it can be scary sometimes. I don't want the thing falling apart on me, especially with the butterfly brace there. I was thinking resonated, but I'm not sure because of the turbo being put in, it should dampen the sound enough already..

Suggestions?

If you can't find one used, boss frog has a test pipe that costs ~ 70. I know goodwin racing sells them.

I'm running one on my SC and it is fine, you surely won't need anything resonated with a turbo.

Do you remember which one you got? I'm mostly worried about it being in the way of that brace. It's seriously bottomed out in extension, so I bottom out on speed bumps... not good when I pick my brother up from school in the summer...
