You will likely run into hesitation/reluctance with the dealer installing aftermarket headers without the precats. The Capristo bracket will not be a problem but the headers will.
Since your car is 2006, it is not likely to be qualified for any "Ferrari" warranty, so I would go with the recommendations of fellow members and push for an aftermarket header. Similar to Stef, I have Capristo headers, brackets and even a twin sound exhaust installed in my car. No issues at all (including no CEL's) since I kept my OEM cats.
By the way, I changed my OEM Mark 1 manifolds just a year ago and upon removal, they were tested and showed that they were still in good condition, without any leaks/failure.....
Nube for a Reason!
