    Problem with me at least is that the longer you own a loud exhaust, the more you get used to the sound and before you know it, you're looking to make it more aggressive. Kind of like the power itch. It's never ending. This is why a lot of people go for the Magnaflow with an electric cut-out. Best of both worlds.

    Like some others have said though, exhaust really is purely personal preference. What some love, others hate. You can always sell it if you don't like it
    Why do people use magnaflow with a cutout? Could I potentially run a LMII with an electrical cutout, cause I think that would be perfect.

    Yes, you could...but a cut-out with stock manifolds probably isn't going to sound the greatest. Now if you had headers that would be a different story. The added electric cut-out is not part of the exhaust kit. It allows your exhaust to escape through the cut-out prior to going through the exhaust so you would be running open headers (very loud). When you want to just run your normal exhaust you simple hit the button to close the cut-out.
    It's on jackstands.

    I can see that happening. I grew out of car audio when I was in my late 20's only.

    ^^^lol you guys are old.

    It'll never be too loud in the stereo or the exhaust for me.

    Tho there is something to be said for a quieter, deep rumble backed up by ultra-quick acceleration.

    A guy I work with has a Nissan GT-R. When he went to the drag strip, it ran 11.19 @ 119. No drama at the line, no pre-start burnout, and all quiet compared to the other cars, and pretty much kicked the race cars ass.

    Luckily, I was already too old for the car audio craze when that came about. Just a radio with a couple of 6x9's worked fine for me

    And yes, I'm 29. So I think that counts for late twenties. Haha.
