    yes and yes. if you want 2 they go in the y pipe after the headers, one on each side.

    if you want one, goes in at the end of the y pipe after it connects from 2 to 1.

    im getting dual electronic DMH cut-outs with flow-techs. good price on their site. only heard good things.

    well yeah see i want to know is there a good gain other than more noise for the 2 cut outs vs the 1 cut out, or is it a waste of money and im leaning towards 2 cut outs tho

    You'll likely note a modest gain on a dyno depending on your application. On a bone stock LS1 with the stock catback, you might see 10 - 12 rwhp, however if you already have a better flowing catback and aren't running a H/C/I, N2O or forced induction setup, you'll likely only see a nominal gain.

    Aside from a slight performance gain, I LOVE my cutout mainly because of the sound. I went with an electric cutout and I usually keep it around 50 - 60% open -- just enough to add a little volume to the exhause note and keeping it only parly open helps cut down on the rasp a bit.

    Yeah man i'd just go with one in the i-pipe. I can't feel gains but i know they are there for sure. As far as sound goes my buddy had the same mods and two cutouts instead of one and we sounded the exact same.
