Default bad cat

long tine reader ,first time writer--short story long,i'm completing a restoration on my 200k 95 sse.i believe it was in "limp home mode"for a while before the wife let me know or that i even heard of it before i started reading this forum.I know the cat is cooked(it rattles and parts are in the muffler. I have swaped the engine with a crashed 99 3800 ,hoping that was caused it to run bad has magicaly gone away.Now it leads me to the big question,what is a good source for a new cat ,and will the car run to test if all my work has payed off?

You will have to clean out any loose parts and fix any holes, but it should work just fine.
