    I use a 3" cutout. I installed it under the passengers side rear floor pan (its about the only place it would fit). I seen about a tenth gain in the quarter mile.. With no engine temperature problems. I do not think it helps in the 1/8th mile.. Matter of fact I think it hurts it in the 1/8th. Im running the car tonight.. I will try it with it and without it. I think the extra back pressure will help in the 1/8. It seems to not start really building power with the cutout open until you get in the high rpms'.

    I will let you know how it goes
