I'm turbo back, no muffler and no cat. I cut the bolts down on my cat so for inspection purposes it takes a matter of couple minutes to put back on. No back pressure issues at all.

I deleted my cat completely - no inspection laws here in OK - and I have not had any backpressure issues either.
I like it!

I suggest you keep the cat intact. Get a cat delete pipe. I say this because the cost of replacing the cat is alot of money. It is much cheaper to keep the cat in full use condition that way if you ever need to put it back on you will have a fully working cat. I am sure others will aggree with me on this.

$50 for a delete pipe is way cheaper than buying a new cat. Just because the shell is still present doesn't mean that it will protect your warranty. Like Rodslinger said, it only takes a few minutes to swap out the cat and the pipe.
