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

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.

Oh you got manual ones? Still very functional... but yea electronic ones save a hassle hah. I say you save up for them man! Most definitely worth it! And they aren't That expensive, but if you can't afford 2, 1 is honestly just as good. Hope you get one!

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.

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.
