makes the car LOUD and frees up some horsepower. I believe Darth Emma got 50 rwhp from her cut outs. Though hers are before the cats which is not usually done.

Personal preference. I have no experience with cut out brands as getting them is just a day dream of mine.

Like stieger above, I've been day-dreaming about getting cutouts or perhaps diverters for mine. But, I have to slow down and take things one at a time. I'm getting my ARH long tubes installed this coming week. After this, I may or may not need cutouts, since it will definitely be LOUD!

I just sold my QTP oval cut-outs because I am in the process of installing my Stainless Works Retro Chambered system, and someday I will have SW 2" Headers with HF Cats. So I figured that would certainly be loud enough. But if I didn't have this system going in, I definitely would love to have kept them.

Have ya'll seen the new "wireless" activation system that QTP just released? That is just awesome!!! Makes me kinda wish I still had 'em.
