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.

But I haven't seen any with Borla yet.


One of the few mods you haven't nearly killed yourself over... yet...
There is still time. lol

Im seriously waiting for you to come on here telling us you cut too much out of the exhaust and are trying to piece it back together...
Also, still time. haha


the only timing retard I ever saw was the guy with a stopwatch at the dragstrip...

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.

you wouldnt be broke. you would spend the same amount (actually probably less, I'm cheap... but I'm not easy). You already know how many times I've told you that I'm a "Bang for your buck" kinda guy.



remember.... measure six times, then wrap a piece of tape around the exhaust (so you have a guide line to go with) and make sure the tape has no wrinkles so its straight, then cut
