    I'm sure this has been asked, but who uses which cut out and why? I am looking to to this on my 97GT but want to be mindful of the neighbors when I come home later at night. Thanks for the info guys.

    I thought about that too, but I want to be "thoughtful" of my neighbors although they are not mindful of others.
    Maybe I just dump it after the x-pipe, no mufflers or cats!

    QTP is the industry standard, IMO.

    i had QTP on mine for years and was happy. They were stainless steel. got discolored but never any rust, and that was with more than one outing in chicagoland winters, unfortunately. the wing nuts they came with were fairly useless-i quickly replaced it with high quality bolts and nuts and it sealed just fine.this was back in like 2007 so maybe they use bolts now instead of wing nuts. my first bbk H rusted clean through, got a bassani SS X and didnt put the cutouts back on- i didnt want to cut into my brand new mid pipe and also, the sound was rather obnoxious, it was loud and only sounded good over 3500 rpm for the most part. it sounded mean though. i left them off not because i was disappointed with them at all, more so just wasnt in the mood for cut outs period anymore. if you're serious about them, id recommend spending the extra on the electric. it was a pain having to crawl around underneath all the time and i probably would have enjoying them more if i got the electric motors.

    I have the Race Ready brand. they are made in Tx. they are electric and work well. been on car a long time. I use a single on the Turbo down pipe before the Y to the muffles. Lots of fun . Good for a HP bump also.
    I have also installed, on a cust car ,some CHingchong from Ebay , they work well and look to be quite well made.
