I had them on my 04 but they were more of a pain than anything. In order to keep them from leaking I'd have to torque the bolts down tight which made it a bitch to open them up. I got them from Summit. I only ever opened them up at the track though.

How bad did they leak? I was thinking about ordering those in about a week

If I only hand tightened the butterfly nuts (really hand tight) they wouldn't leak at first but after a few miles I could hear them leaking. It was enough to become a pain. Not only that but I lost several of the nuts and bolts. I finally got a set of hex head nuts and bolts and used a wrench to tighten them.

No point in having cutouts...

Had them when I had a huge cam, sounded crazy down low.... Only really opened them up going into a car meet or leaving one or when i was at creeping speed.

well i got a lot of motor work and FI so hopefully that helps compared to others stockish motors with them. i seen yours with open headers.
Look at my Open cutouts video, trust me its not worth it past idle.
