    cutouts

    Hey guys, what do you guys think is the best cutout to get? and how much hp would i possibly get if i get them with a corsa catback? And how do they sound closed like you never had cutouts?

    Very little power over the Corsa catback.
    Just noise mostly.


    From what I have seen....I would recommend DHM (or maybe it is DMH).

    No problem.


    Also, I see you added a question.
    With it capped...it should sound like it does now.
    You would want a single cutout before the catback on the I-pipe.

    true!

    if you're cheap like me, then just buy the summit cut-outs, cut-out is a cut-out until you go electric.

    or u can run dual cut-outs on the y pipe as well.

    DMH all the way for e cut out!

    They have a 4 year warranty and Ive heard countless positive feed back on them.

    Ive heard a lot of bad things about QTP e cut outs.

    If you are thinking of just a manual cut out go with the QTP stainless but for and electronic unit go with DMH. I have one waiting to go in.

    mine didn't clear well but after reading up on it, theres an excess on the one pipe that you trim to best fit your exact setup.... once we started trimming on it, it tucked up there nicely....
