    Okay ONE more question. If I did put on a cutout, could I run a 2nd exhaust pipe out of the cutout and put on a different muffler? :D

    the cutout is another lil pipe kinda like a lil Y thats welded on to ur exhaust piping. and 1 of the pipe is ur cutout and it just opens and closed.
    u cant put a muffler after the cutout.

    remember to put the cutout before ur cats/muffler so itll get no restriction.

    mine sounds nasty loud with a turbo u can hear the turbo spool up/down when its open.
    but once i shut it a lil bit louder than stock. i have 2 mufflers to tone it down. 0 cats
    open my cutout to gain 0 restriciton= more power :)

    I say get the cut-out, have a muffler shop install it for you and enjoy it. Who cares what everyone thinks about it. Sure its a waste of money to some people, others just don't get it. I get where you are coming from, I used to love having loud cars when I was a teenager. I also enjoyed having enough bass to shake other peoples cars. Being a menace can be a lot of fun when you are young so enjoy it while it lasts.

    One thing I would suggest is just to unbolt your exhaust to make sure you really want that sound. You may just want to get an idea of what it will sound like before you spend the loot to do it :)

    Good luck, post a video when you are done.

    Edit: One thing you may also want to confirm is can you pass emissions with it on? I know you can redirect the flow back to the stock muffler, but some places look under the car and may deny you right off the bat for this.

    I see. People taking the internet a little too seriously. Also just because I say it is a waste doesn't stop people from purchasing mods. They do it all day. Intakes fly off the shelves every day. You yourself said this is not a performance oriented site.

    To an extent. I have 0 cats now and I also run 2 mufflers. I would be lying if I said I had more power across the band. My truck rips at high RPM, but since I am still N/A I definitely feel the loss at lower RPM. That is something I would advise against for anyone looking to do this. If not boosted, you will feel the loss in power up until 3200 RPM or so
