    a GT pipe wont fit a v6 i dont think? i would say a x pipe might sound better on a v6...but really havent heard either in person.

    yea i need a H-pipe or a X-pipe for the GT take-offs im getting from a friend of mine.
    im thinking a H would sound ok but its the mufflers that make the sound come out

    An x-pipe will give more of a racing sound, raspy, higher pitched.

    A h-pipe will give you more of a muscle car sound.

    Now it wont exactly sound like a muscle car since we have sixers, but i just used that as an example.
