i believe a test pipe is a straight piece of tube that replaces the space that the catalytic converter used to take up

correct. no one has any info for it?

It helps out a little bit for performance.

When you upgrade the size of the exhaust piping you are either going to need a new Cat, or a test pipe.

The two reasons that a test pipe is ususally used.
1) It's cheaper than a new cat
2) non-OEM cats ususally don't last very long, 35,000 miles maximum.
