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.

Ok. . . . . . . . .

So let me clear this up so maybe everyone is on the same page.

See, I told Chris I was done modding my car till I get wheels.

He laughed at me. Psh..... as if............ tsk...........

He basically challenged me that I would still mod my car before the wheels.

So I have to somehow justify cut-outs as not being a mod so I can still give him a nanner nanner.
