Primary cat stand up to turbo?

I was wondering if anyone had any input or advice on whether or not the factory primary cat can stand up to the additional heat created by a turbocharger? Let's assume you don't track often if at all, and the car is mostly a DD... Should I be worried about it melting and potentially damaging the turbo/engine down the line?

The cat is suppose to make more heat than a turbo. That's how it burns off excess fuel in the exhaust.

If it's getting too hot to the point that the core of the cat starts to break down, then you have a fueling issue.

The issue would be more of the back pressure because of restriction of low in the exhaust.

Thanks for the input. I suppose I won't worry about it too much than, at least until I grab a set of new headers. Thanks again!
