Ok. Other than wheels I'm pretty much done modding my car till I get my wheels.

So instead of a mod I thought I'd do some cut-outs as an enhancement.

I realized how easy and fairly inexpensive they are and my parents want to do something for me for my car. I should be able to get it done for under 500.00 so I might go ahead and do it.

Been talking about it here.

Ummm... cutouts are a mod. If you can put them behind your headers, you will get the most sound and you might pick up about 10 rwhp with them open (I did).

I used QTP cutouts on mine.

You will LOVE the sound!!! (You neighbors might not though.)

Well It's not a mod.

In my estimation in order to be a mod it has to either look good or add performance. This does neither.

Ya. That's it.

To clarify.........

A 'mod' has become slang speak for Visually enhancing or enhancing the performance. (in this case 'enhancing' as in adjective or even a verb)

But cut-outs neither add performance or visual improvements.

So to add cut-outs in my estimation is an enhancement. (noun) Not a mod.



Ya?

EDIT: after reading your post again.. I think you are trying to using the art of grammar to justify your reasoning. Not whether it actually is a mod.

in that case... play on player


Nah

Mod is shorty for Modify... as in to alter your car in anyway.,.

like the yahoos up by me... they go as far as only doing Sticker Mods...
they think a Holly Carb sticker adds HP.

but I digress
back to your point...

Visually enhancing or enhancing the performance.

Point 1
if you have Visual as a point of interest, then you must include Acustic as one, Eyes and Ears go hand in hand.

Point 2
As Emma pointed out earlier today or yesterday.... Cutouts do add HP.
it's science.

lets restriction means more hp. You are bypassing the entire exhaust
i think emma said she gained 10hp.
