Default Tuning question

OK well I am going to have my car tuned with catless downpipe and uppipe.
My plans when its time to get inspected is to possibly have a high flow cat welded in an extra stock cat back pipe so its easy to put in and out.
My question is will the high flow cat effect the way the car runs dramatically because of the catless tune?
We dont have sniffers done but they do leave the car on while inspecting so they can smell it if its catless. Also i "think" they do or supposed to do a visual under the car but he didnt last time.
thanks guys

-Chris

No, it wont affect it at all. Why not leave the cat in all the time - with a stock turbo you aren't really leaving any noticeable power on the table.

Well i was thinking about that also. But heres the situation.
Im having it tuned come this april with my mods now. The rest of my money will go to track events (im a student and dont have alot of money right now) so i cant get everything right now. So i figured when its time for emmissions, throw that setup on there. And if there is no problem with the tuning and cat, ill just keep it on there....
