I have consistently shown better results at the track with the cutouts open.



And the sound is precious!

Do they seal up well? and no worries about a burnout valve?

I have no complaints. There is a very minor amount of leakage, but my exhaust is not 'Lincoln quiet' anyways with no cats and Hooker open-style mufflers. I've run them quite a while and can detect no issues with any valve burning.

QTP? is that a brand? how expensive is the setup and what size did you go with?

not to get off topic but driller, do you have a friggin rotary lift in your garage?!? and a split v style too.. i always choose the split v style over the spider lifts when i put a car in the air at work (tire kingdom) and if that is in your garage.. how much was it? ive heard theyre upwards of 10k for the really good ones.. not like i could do that here in fl anyways since theyre technically illegal in fl...

LOL, I only wish I had a lift.

That pic was taken at the shop that welded up the exhaust.
