Well, of course not.

It's like they say about hanging out with ugly people so you look better.

BTW, trying to figure out where to put my cut-outs.

Thinking back by the diff.

You know, my pretty mod.

I want to but there is no room up through the center area. it's either right behind the cats or where the pipes turn in or back by the diff. where the pipes turn in might not be long enough.

Right behind the cats might be too hot???

with the knock sensors being so sensitive, I'd keep them at the rear.

agreed. I'm just saying that there have also been cases when the cutouts are too close to the engine they set off the knock sensors when open.

But as long as it's not metal on metal pinging I should be fine right?

I mean the cam ping through the dumps shouldn't do it..... ???

Might not have a choice anyway.

depends on the cutouts I guess. the knock sensors detect noise... and cutouts that are too loud can set them off with out any metal to metal contact if they are too loud.

I would keep them as close to the rear as possible. but that's just me. Ask spike what he thinks.

time to get the sawzall out...

seriously tho... if they can fit exhaust diverters in that area, you should be able to fit cutouts in there... just sayin. go check out the diverter threads and see where they have them mounted. worst comes to worst... get the hammer out and make some room

knock sensors are oxymoronic. they don't detect knock, they hear sounds and if the sound is just right, the ecm will pull timing. that being said, I ran open headers for over a year straight and the only timing retard I ever saw was the guy with a stopwatch at the dragstrip...

Replace the cats with them.

OR put them as close to the headers as you can. I never had any problems with them right behind the headers. You get the most bang for you buck there... more sound, more hp.

I have no cats. But tomorrow morning I'll jack it up and take a look. Might be the perfect spot.

I'm glad to hear you don't have cats because with that maggie, they'd be toast anyway.

IPS had to reweld my cutouts to make them fit, but they were not the same brand as yours. But, they put them where the off road pipes would normally go (right behind the headers).

I compared my cutout sound to a friends. He put his in the bend further back on the exhaust. Mine were noticeably louder.

I'm not sure if I'll be getting cutouts for my new exhaust or not. I'm not sure they will do much for the sound in a TT car. I should start a thread...


Done! http://camaro5.com/forums/showthread...31#post4585131

I'm gonna try and do it up front. Put some good turn downs and hopefully have room to angle it the way I want. Just gotta look.

Headed out to do it now.

Sawsall, here I come.
