    Electrical cutouts have a switch inside the car that you use to open or close the cutout. If you have a cutout that isn't electrical, you have to get out of the car and usually remove 2 bolts to uncap the cutout.

    they get placed along your exhaust piping and when you want to bypass your exhaust system for better flow/ louder sound then you open them up and its the same as just dumping your exhaust instead of running a full system

    nope, you could install a cutout on any exhaust.

    cut outs are nice because if you want the car to be loud you can make it loud, if you want to soften the sound of the car close the cutout. electrical is deff. the way to go if youre going to install a cutout, like said above if its not electrical youve gotta get outta the car, and do it yourself. electrical is much easier! push a button and your car is really loud

    How loud we talkin', guys? I would assume the cut out route is cheaper than investing in an exhaust, right? And it helps it breathe better?

    I'm not much of a mechanic, but I love my car. I wanted to get an aftermarket exhaust installed, but this sounds like it may be a good workaround in the mean time.

    I have the QTP electric cut out, I run it open all the time lol its just sounds to damn good but it is one of the coolest things I have done to my car...The aww factor is fun plus a guys said that with his cut out open he gained 6hp on the dyno, so a full exhaust system will free up about the same hp as the cut out...Just a flip of a switch and boom, very cool.

    Cool. Know any websites where I could find more info? Where would I get something like that done? Like I said, not much experience working on cars myself.
