need some advice on exhaust options

im looking to do a set of long tube headers and the true x pipe, possibly removing the cats....havent decided that part yet, also the mufflers were removed for straight axleback. anyhow i have been looking at a set of cutouts, would i gain anything with those over the way i intend to go with the exhaust? or just throwing money away?

You won't see real gains from cutouts. I would go longtubes and a tune. High flow cats only cost you about 1-2 HP so that a wash.
