Cutouts are truly amazing. A buddy of mine replaced his flowmasters with a stock ws6 catback, and a cutout. He can be stealth when he wants, and sound fantastic at the flip of a switch. After seeing his, I would NEVER replace a stock exhaust when you can just install a cutout a lot cheaper.

I was going to go with dumps (before the axle), but since I get all kinds of comment on my exhaust (I was told by the seller it's a Flow Bastard) I decided to keep it and get dual 4" cut outs with the remote :cool:

I can't wait to get my single 3" e cutout on my stock cat back. Man the stock cat back really tames the LS1 down. You should get a video up of what it sounds like open man! I'd appreciate it.

Flowmaster 80 series sounds much better than a cutout IMO. But the cutout will certainly flow better and is great for the track.

The stock catback is too quiet, not sure why anyone would purposely choose their only options to be the flat note of a stock catback or the excessive volume of a cutout (especially if you don't have cats)....talk about extremes. Makes sense if you're on a budget though. But to each his own.

To each his own is right.

My buddy has LTs, cat delete, full 3in piping to the stock muffler,with an e-cutout on the I-pipe. It sounds truly amazing. And you can choose to open the cutout slightly to control the volume. I would trade in a heartbeat.

:lol:

There are several catback/muffer choices that sound much better, with catless true duals being by far the best. The stock muffler sounds flat and boring in comparasion, even with a cat delete.

An un-catted, un-muffled Y-pipe setup just doesn't sound nice at anything but idle, IMO. Only way to make that better is to put dual cutouts before the Y-merge, but then that's a lot of volume for street driving.

I guess its all opinion really... Honestly, I was satisfied with stock mani's, stock open y pipe, sounds great. Not Too loud, definitely not quiet. But I'd much rather have it have some rasp, which not a lot of people want. I ideally want LT's into an O/R y with a bullet muffler dumped right after the y. Or true duals with an X pipe, then dumped before the axle.

Mine is going on the i-pipe right before the rear axle. The extension where the cutout comes out of the pipe will be on the passenger side. I've heard that 2 cutouts before the cats have clearance issues.. which I have no trouble believing after seeing how tight it is under there.

Here is a pic of where a single cutout on the i-pipe would go, and a video of an open y pipe (should sound *similar to a cutout on the i pipe)...

^video doesn't do it justice whatsoever... much deeper at idle and has a lot of treble in the tone when you rev it up. Hope this helps,

There will be a noticeably different sound quality between these two setups. True duals (with X-pipe, H-pipe or no crossover at all) will sound much better than an ORY with one bullet dumped after the merge.

There are different types of "rasp"; what you get with any sort of true dual setup sounds good to me too. But the kazoo-on-crack type of raspiness that comes from having an ORY with no muffler is just not good IMO.

Yea I know... I really don't think you get to experience what an LSx motor sounds like until you hear it with true duals. Don't get me wrong, their tone with a y pipe is still badass, but man I'd love duals much more.

You can wire it directly to the battery, and just have the toggle switch mounted inside the vehicle to cut power to the motor, for open and closed positions.

Not that hard, but you will find a big argument about Manual and elctronic cut outs... Manual require 2 mins of your time, and will never fail. Electronic is nice due to the convinience of a switch, but can fail in the future. Motor can get stuck and will eventually. Plus, manuals are around 28 bucks vs 170ish for electronics.
Mine is a Manual one, and love it.

If your going electronic, some of the guys can help you as far as brands. Due to the warranty. All electronic cut out will fail...

On the other hand, If you are going with manual ones, just get the regular summit racing brand for 28bucks each. Anything else and ur just buying the brand name.

Well yes you will have constant current if you wire it directly into the battery with no switch...

Pretty much here is how i would do it.
Your ground just get it from any clean part of the chasis. Your 12 volts coming from the battery or where ever you chose to connect it to, has to land on the switch first, and then to the motor. That way you control the cutout, Kinda like a light switch...

Hope this helped!:burn:

My cutout was open the whole time. They said the spike is probably because of wheel slipage on the dyno. There was a few cars there that day that had these random spikes.

there are so many people that always say i never ever close my cut out , its always open, for those of you that never close it you really should look into a good dual setup, the sound is beyond great

I have an older FLP electric cutout that is mounted on the over the axle pipe. Its got to be about 5 or 6 years old by now and did jam up once. I took it apart and sprayed brake cleaner on the gate to get rid of the carbon.
Having it on the other side of the axle doesn't give much of a performance benefit but it also means that the noise in the car isn't too bad. I run with it open most of the time. The cats are gutted and it does sound very nasty. When the car was H/C I still had cats and that eliminated the rasp. Don't have the raspy sound with this motor.
The FLP cutout it is a large heavy piece. It makes it hard to keep the exhaust hanging correctly because of the weight of it shaking it back and forth.

Over all I think i just may stick with the Manual i already have... Thats for that good input...

Here is a pic of where a single cutout on the i-pipe would go, and a video of an open y pipe (should sound *similar to a cutout on the i pipe)...

^video doesn't do it justice whatsoever... much deeper at idle and has a lot of treble in the tone when you rev it up. Hope this helps,

That guy in the vid needed motor mounts, like yesterday... lol

Not sure if many agree, but Louder is Better for me...

Flowmaster 80 series sounds much better than a cutout IMO. But the cutout will certainly flow better and is great for the track.

The stock catback is too quiet, not sure why anyone would purposely choose their only options to be the flat note of a stock catback or the excessive volume of a cutout (especially if you don't have cats)....talk about extremes. Makes sense if you're on a budget though. But to each his own.



I agree. Cutouts for the track would be cool, and a nice flowing, not too loud exhaust for the street would be ideal, for me anyways.

I wonder how a cut out with catz sounds like... I gutted mine out. Hope some one can help with a video to compare sound differece with mild cam If possible.

I like the sound better with the cats (H/C 347 longtubes) they cut the rasp from the exhaust note.
