Installed Pypes 3 inch electric cut outs for some LOLs

Just for anyone wondering if cut outs help or hurt our cars I did a little test. Installed some 3 inch electric cut outs a few weeks ago and went to an event that had a dyno and decided to do back to back pulls and note the difference. I'm offshore and dont have the graph handy to post but I have the video. HP was way high because this was an event (import face off) an the calibration is always off (I guess to help those poor import guys with bragging rights). With the cut outs closed I got 482whp and 473tq to the wheels. Way too high but did a second pull but opened them and lost 10 peak HP and 8lbs of torque. Basically the same exact curves but it did carry the HP curve slightly farther with them open.

On another note, AED lope tune with open dumps sounds like sex. I've had.so many people ask what work my motor has, even the dyno guy. Tired of trying to explain how the tune works.

Video was before lowering springs were put on. Excuse the 4x4 stance lol.

Drone.... Drone...... Drone.... Everyone asks this question over and over when it comes to exhaust mods.

Stick your ear next to your exhaust tip and let your buddy rev your car. Its about that loud with the windows down lol. It echos off everything, buildings, walls, cars, curbs, everything. Surprisingly with the windows up it isn't terribly bad. Everyone WILL stare as you pass by lol. Already had a cop stop me and was baffled because he swore he heard a loud car and then pulled me over and mine was quiet. (Switch is in the console lol)

Btw I got it backwards. The first pull in that video is open headers, second pull is through the exhaust.

I think they would sound better after the crossover. An open X pipe sounds pretty damn evil.

Well my crossover/xpipe is also my muffler. I built my exhaust around having a deep growl with little rasp or high pitched sound. What you see there is a dynomax ultraflo x muffler... Everything is 3 inch with that muffler and a pype bomb axleback that's black. I had to tame the beast when I deleted the cats.

Haha yeah some buddies black smoked me in their diesels (a Cummins and a duramax both heavily modded) so I flipped the switch and punched it in second. 4 cops came out of nowhere and pulled us all over. We were away from any traffic and by ourselves so they just checked us and let us leave with a warning.... Had to try so hard not to laugh at the cop when he was asking all sorts of stupid questions. He was thinking there was a 4th car that got away lol.
