    I tried to tell this to a few people and they said I was nuts.

    You absolutely lose low end power with cutouts. No doubt about it.

    I also tried to tell a couple people on here I could feel a differance when I took my Loudmouth resonator off and put on a more restrictive muffler. The Loudmouth is straight through. I felt more low end with the restrictive muffler.

    Check out Mrr23s Bassani duals versus a cutout at the bottom right of this link http://www.stealthram.com/bassanidualexhaust.htm . He lost both speed and time in the quarter with a cutout over the true dual setup. Check into some true duals. You won't be disappointed. Mrr23 dynoed 20rwhp more with the true duals than the catback. You can't beat duals for the power gain. The gains from a true duals setup and stock manifolds (like the Bassani) are about what you'd get with headers and an excellent catback. Adding headers later will gain you even more power with the true duals, giving you even more power potential.

    ^ thats good info. The true dual system is about $900 but compared to a Borla CB$750-800 it makes sense.

    Exactly. True duals with stock cats/manifolds compares to a Borla WITH headers powerwise. All things considered, $750-800 catback + $400 headers = $1150-1200 versus the $979 Bassani kit (or any other good 2.5" true duals setup). Bassani makes the same power cheaper and allows more gains later if/when headers are added.
    2002 WS6 Trans Am, A4, SLP lid, P&P TB, 3500 stall, 24K GVW tranny cooler, HPTuners, Pacesetter LTs, Bassani dual exhaust with 'x' crossover, coolant bypass, sealed airbox to hood.
