    Yes, of course you will pick a few more horses when the cutout is open. How much depends on your specific setup. Obviously, the exhaust noise volume will be much louder when the cutout is open. Then hit the switch and you're back to 'normal' volume (if stock; even quieter if you add additional mufflers and/or resonators). This is a nice option if you live in a quiet neighborhood.

    this is what i got, its 3" so its a little too big. you can see in the video the gap. but the hose clamps crush it to seal. you could get some reducers and weld it up nice. the system has held up great since i got it 6months ago

    When I had my car smogged last time, I asked the guy about cutouts, and this was at a test only station, and he told me that anything after the cats was legal.
