Which catless Xpipe works with SLP longtubes?

So I've been searching around and looking through the forums and inter webs on which catless xpipe would work with the SLP longtubes and have had no luck on a clear answer. Mainly I've come to the answer of every one is going with the catted Xpipe they sell but that's not what I'm looking for. Does any one have any idea of which shorty Catless Xpipe that might work with this.

Usually it is best to stay same brand like you mentioned. It might take some modification and headache to get them together. You may ask some muffler places what they recommend and if one takes less modification to make work

They only make a catted x-pipe from what I've found. I'd hate to buy that and have the cats removed, just wouldn't be cost effective.

Just run the catted pipe, no loss in power honestly. Or get a custom off-road one made locally. Or have the cats on the slp one removed and have v bands installed on them and the new bypass tubes for easy swap out during emissions inspections or if a cop pulls you over and issues a fix it ticket.

The reason I was going Catless is because I have the car registered in SC. They don't require any emissions test what so ever and I turn car off when ever I get pulled over and have never had an issue with it. I've only gotten 1 ticket out of 8 pull overs but that was my fault due to my car reading 80 mph when it was really going 88. The rest just wanted to know what the car was.

Eh, well, if you ever go to another state and they want to be ******** they can impound you as its a federal crime to take off emissions equipment 50 state wide. Trumps any state laws. I've never heard of this happening mind you but it can... And having the cats really doesn't cause any performance loss.

I might possibly run the catted ones if that's the only one that actually is meant for the SLP Longtubes but I still need to find some one that can make some custom side exhaust with the Slp lm2's

Any good exhaust shop can do it but if you have subframes... going to run into pretty big clearance issues as the only subframes that will work 100% with side exhaust without having to do some kind of crazy setup are the Spintechs. I've heard Global West ones also have good clearance but have not ever seen someone with them so dunno about that.

Lets roll with that... yeah... haha I probably was the one who recommended them, a lot of ppl aren't even aware of Spintech as a company much less that they made a set of chassis hugging subframes.

I'll get a picture up of them so others can see how thin but stout they really are.
