X-pipe help! 99 sixxer

I want an X-pipe for shorty headers, will a GT X-pipe work or do I need a V6 pipe? Looking for a cheap one

With some fabrication you can put the gt one on your sixxer. Take it to your local muffler shop and they'll give you a quote, of you could do it yourself

It will throw a code but besides that nothing. A shop can do it though just some cutting and welding

basically no it won't just bolt up...you'll have to either A) cut off the y pipe and cats and weld up the off road x...B) Measure it all out and weld v6 manifold flanges in the correct spot on the new x pipe....that being said. are you sure you want an x pipe on a v6?
