if the converter was bad the engine would loose power . alot of times the check engine light will come on for the emmitions check youre gas cap some vehicles will send a signal to the computer if the co is not right and by changing the gas cap solved the problem .

Yes they are (WELDED) I own an LS
It will cost too much,to go to a dealer.
I would be careful at any muffler shop
Both converters and both pipes, are one welded assy back to the exhaust pipes. Then the you have a slip joint.
I don't have an answer for you. But, if I ever need them,I will check at the auto parts store, to see if OEM Converters are available.
Then I will remove the two factory ones and weld in the new ones,duplicating the factory set up. They should be 409 stainless steel and require TIG Welding.
For yourself. I wish you the best, in your choice of how you want to approach it.
Seeing as how the oldest LS ,a 2000 model, is ten years old,I would doubt you need a converter.
Do you have a check light on dash (MIL Light) or codes related,such as a PO-420 or PO-430?

possible causes for code po420 airleaks at the exhaust manifold or in the exhaust pipes,base engine problems high engine oil or coolant usage,catalytic converter is damaged contaminated or has failed,continuos engine misfire conditions or weak or low coil out put,front HO2s or rear HO2s is contaminated with fuel or moisture,rear HO2s is loose in the mounting hole,front HO2s older aged than the rear HO2s or HO2s 1 - 2 is lazy.

Code p0430 could mean that you catalytic converter is no longer "cleaning" your exhaust gases. In your car, it's possible to have more than one catalytic converter (V6 engines have two banks of cylinders and could have a cat on each side).
Bank 1 is the side of the engine where cylinder no. 1 is located. Bank 2 is, you guessed it, the other side. If you look up the firing order of the engine, you will see which cylinder is #1.
Although catalytic converters are not cheap, it is recommended that they be replaced in pairs due to the fact that the other catalytic converter may trigger your "check engine" light soon after you replace the first. Also, it may also be a good time to throw in new oxygen sensors.

A code P0430 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
First, inspect for exhaust leaks.
Next step is to measure the voltage at the oxygen sensor on Bank 2. In fact, it would be a good idea to test each oxygen sensor while you're at it.
