Do I need two cutouts. Or one?
Yo Guys. I have a stock 2000 WS6 Trans am. I want to put a exhaust cutout on it. Can you put them before the cats? Or only after. Also is it worth the money for a preformance air box lid?

I have one cutout right after the Y. I have no cats, cut it would be aft cat. It's a cool mod, and in my car I fould feel a difference, but it's loud as hell. Then again, I have no cats, LT's, H/C so the neighbors complain when I start her up

would two cut-outs make that much of difference than just one? my cut-out is installed beside the muffler (to the right) is this position correct?

I wouldnt put two cutouts that far up on the y-pipe. You'll more than likely lose power with that setup. Before I put headers and an x-pipe on mine I had a cutout welded in right before the y-pipe bends to go over the rear axle, that way it just ran a straight shot down the middle of the car and out of the cutout.

two cutouts are overkill, Youll be happy with just 1

Two arent worth the money and you'd lose ALOT of ground clearance. One in the I-pipe is good enough. Dont go with qtec cutouts. They are bad for leaking and need to be rebuilt/put back together often. The tiny screws they use will vibrate apart and the elec motor will fall off, has happened to me too many times.

On a single exhaust system, you only need ONE!! most install the cutout into the I-pipe right under the back seat before the rear axle on the passenger side. Reason being: there is a bump in the floorboard there, allowing room also less chance of fumes getting into the cab.
I have one and love it, sounds great and its worth about 10rwhp depending on your setup

I use two electric cutouts, one right after each header collector.

hows about the Mr. Gasket remote cutouts. i have only seen them in 2 in. any one know if they make them in 3 in for the header collectors or any other place that makes them bigger. cheaper than electric with all the benefits
