For whatever reason, I can't get pics to work but just use the link to my photobucket. Not the best pics, but hopefully you'll get the idea.

any exhaust smell or heat issues with it open?

You can smell it when its open because it comes out right under the passenger seat, but mine stays closed most of the time anyway. I literally only open it to go wot then I close it right after. As for heat issues, I was driving with an open downpipe for 2 months and it was never a problem. For the money you can't beat it. You get better flow than a 3" exhaust and you get the quiet of a small exhaust. I would recommend these things to anyone; its really one of the best purchases I've made in a while.

Based on price and reviews i read i got a raceland 3" cutout. It's wireless and the whole kit runs ~$100. Couldn't really beat that IMO

but any cutout on a turbo setup is a good idea. a friend of mine following me to the track once said he got scared by all the aggressive noises and flames coming out. lol

So out of curiosity, what exhaust setup is everyone running with these cutouts?

My current setup:
3" DP
cat (straight pipe replacement for track)
3" catback
magnaflow muffler

Its not loud by any means, but I wouldn't mind it quieter for daily use. Of course, I like the performance gains from the setup, plus I will be moving to a T28 shortly. So should I just build a 2.5" setup or smaller, and use a cutout for when I want additional performance? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have an HKS exhaust which is roughly 2.25" and not much louder than stock. I have run a 3" cutout on a t25, t28 and now my HX35 setup.

with the small(er) turbo's it feels like there is absolutely no lag, not that there is much to begin with.
