    Just curious but why do you want to run those? Wouldnt it hurt your low end torque because of not enough back pressure or are you doing it because it makes it sound cool?:D

    I don't think low end torque is going to be a problem for Brandon.

    I know he has a sweet caddy 500 but it will still hurt the torque a little.

    doing it so I can be quiet around town and not draw unwanted attentino to myself, and be respectful in neighborhoods, but when i want it loud, i can just flip a switch. And if i go from 525lbs of tq to 500, i wont complain, lol

    cutout it self (tube part) was like 25 bucks or something from summit, electric cutout was $50 from my brother, $100 new and you can adapt these to any system that has room

    I'd kinda like to have a set of those as well.I'd pull up next to one of those little burners at a stoplight and instead of drowning their stereo out with my flowmasters I could open those puppies up and scare the **** out of 'em!
    Someone post up and tell me wether or not they leak any or if the seal blows out or whatever other probs they might have.

    I guess they have come way down in price. When I first saw them, a set was over 400.00

    I had one for about 6 months until salt and moisture killed it. Was cool as hell though.

    awesome! I love the idea of them! just gotta figure out a way to keep them dry/clean.....i doubt moisture/water/mud/dirt etc wouldnt' make them work so good.....

    On a truck, the cable actuated ones might be a cheaper/more reliable solution for other ppl that don't alreay have one....

    can you find cable ones anywhere for cheaper? 100 bucks for a pair is still a little pricy for me (17 yr old student w/ crappy job)

    edit*** also with the cable one, if you pull to open.... how do u close it... most cables dont like pushing, jsut pulling.... im wondering if you have to climb under and do it urself..?
