Yea im sure it will help out but is gone be LOUD and ****...

Mod Motor cars don't sound to good with cutouts IMO but i guess it also has something to do with where there installed on the pipe...

My cars too low to fit electric cut outs on, so i have always uncap them at the track

330, I dont think they sound bad at all on a mod motor ;)

Thanks for posting them videos, defiantly changed my opinion on cutouts. Where are they located on your exhaust right after the first bend off the headers or further back?

I only seen one mod motor car and it was a N/A 99-01 Cobra i believe it was stock with cutouts right after the headers and it really sounded like poop:yes

right after my LTs. I put the collector flange right on the cut out.

they will hurt performance and sound like crap, then leak after time. There is no point what so ever to get them. Our cars need backpressure.
