switching from no cats to cats

I am getting long tube headers,an off road x-pipe, and a catback system. Is there a way to swap the cats in without getting a new midpipe? For inspection purposes.

You could have an exhaust shop wield you one in...does your state do visual or OBD inspections?

You would have to cut the xpipe and weld in the cats. A muffler shop could do it, but if your looking for a quick fix that you can change back and forth, then no.

Say I get the kooks LT's...and the magnaflow competition catback. The catback is included with an x-pipe. My question is will the x-pipe that came with the catback match up with the headers?

kooks long tubes and the magnaflow x-pipe / cat-back match perfect together

Yes it will match up, and with the Kooks you can bolt in cats if you need them. Or use the off road pipes. I have both connection pipes (no cats for track).
