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.

Right behind the cats might be too hot???



I think you feel my donks slipping away and need something to hang over me.
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.
