If tuned for then yes. Cut outs are pre cats and really can effect backpressure. You can tune timing and AFR for things like this and it will help the end result a lot more then just slapping one on there.

You wouldn't tune if you had an electrical cutout, right?

No you would. Electrical cutouts are controlled by throttle position and tuning can be measured the same way too. As RPMs increase and the cutout opens you would play with the scales. But if it was a fulltime cutout it would be a slightly different map then a gradual cutout

I was thinking more along the lines of a manually controlled cutout kind of like this...

I'm curious too. I like the idea of being able to open up the cut-outs from inside the car if some moron is blaring his music next to me thinking he's cool.

Also, if you do cut-outs, where do you put them in relation to everything else in the exhaust system, and where do you run pipe, if any, from the cut out.

Most cut-outs are electric / on-demand. Go to yotube and search "cut out corvette". Piles of vids.
