    Sadly now demodded :(

    In my case, on an otherwise stock car, a single cutout in the I-pipe added 15rwhp and 18rwt on the dyno.

    There is a nice area on the passenger side. If you get under the car, you will know what area Im talking about.

    They sound good at idle, but sound like ass at WOT. Just my opinion. I have seen no measurable gains at the track when I made passes with the cutout open vs closed.
