Can Flowmaster 40 series mufflers be used with GT takeoffs?

Flowmaster sells the force 2 kit for v6's with 50 series mufflers yet they dont offer a kit with 40's. If I bought GT takeoffs can I use the 40 series ones with it?
Also would it be a good idea to use an H pipe or just cut off the "Y" just behind the catalytic converters and weld on short sections of pipe to connect the cats to the GT-takeoff flanges?

If you have a 6, which i take it you do. The gt takeoff's are from the cat's back, no H-pipe, or anything. I welded mine up true duals. If you are just wanting to get takeoff's for the piping, it would probably come out cheaper to get a muffler shop to do all your pipework and just put the 50's on those.

Yes, get the 2.25" in and out version

Either way works. People claim a h pipe sounds better.

40'S DON'T SOUND GOOD ON A V6. THEY START TO SOUND RICEY ABOVE 3000RPMS AND ARE OBNOXIOUS.

if your muffler shop has an alternative get it. i'll get a sound clip of my exhaust sometime this weekend. it's deep throughout the rpm range until it dies at 3000. revving at a light or at idle is intimidating to little imports
