Cut Outs?

I'm considering cutouts for my 13' but i'm hearing mixed reviews. I was leaning more towards electric. Thoughts? Anyone ever done this?

No it's less less loud. The cut outs go right behind the headers so it's crazy loud

Noooooo put them before cats, why try an quiet them down? No reason fir cutouts if you want it kinda loud, go straight pipe, cherry bomb, or just leave it alone.
Just my opinion.
I always say make it loud,
Cutouts wide open :RTW:
There fun open and DD but it does get kinda sucky, can't jake brake(engine brake)
Here it costs me 60 for install, 30 a side. I got mine for my 99 on amazon for Uh 74 something, around there. There Patriot 2 1/2"

I took my mufflers off. Tht was loud as piss. But for my DD and intestate, oh Lord. So why not jut before cats. Plus dont we have the cats right after manifold then the x or h pipe. I haven't been under there since my last oil change. Oh, how would you install these. Bolt on, or welded?

I don't mind the sound of a muffler delete but there are those days and in theory cut outs sound like the solution. I suppose bolt on would be preferable. after cats seems more similar to a muffler delete

^kinda eh but eh yeah I dont think it is, you travel more pipe with deletes vs wide open close up front.


And welded :like-a-boss:

Exactly. So basically I've heard loud. But it can get louder.

But would these work for a stock exhaust system.

DO NOT DO IT!!!! Horrible idea. It's a tuner thing so they can rumble too. Plus, it'll kill hp. Way too much outflow and no back pressure. Don't ruin your Pony bro. It sounds okay, but not rumbly, but so not worth it. Unless you give a **** about engine knock and wear.

I recommend them honestly. I've ran no exhaust and no back piping. Loud as piss. But I drank through 3 tanks of gas where it was usually 1.5. The idea is to freely switch between the two with a switch. Idk how you would even do that honestly. We can't even make it on where to put the things lol but I would put mine probably at the mid piping near the rear wheel kinda like Sid exhaust.

As long as you dont weld it to the header that seems like a smooth plan,,, not sure how much room you have from header to cat,, but I believe a foot to a foot an a half is what you'll need, to make the fit
