Thanks

Hey Rob, remember at the Moose cruise I was talking to the GTO guy about the cutouts? It just dumps open like open headers type of deal. Redirects the exhaust out before the cats and everything by a switch.

Bob,
I got mine done at XTC (Extreme Truck and Car) in Framingham. They did a nice clean install.

Great thanks Ed, I forgot the name of the company that did it for you. I really like the install they did, especially in the console. I'll go talk to them based on your recommendations. It was great meeting you and your family. Hope to see you again soon at one of the meet and greets.

I think the cutouts would go after the cats or you would be throwing all kinds of codes.


But never used them so I could be wrong..

Ed, any thoughts on this? Your experience, where are they installed on the exhaust?

Was thinking the same thing. No oxygen sensors... computer would have a hissy fit. The computer would trip the check engine light and give you all sorts of bad codes. The other point is why do it.. if you have invested in a after market exhaust system what would be the real gains. OK the sheer rumble factor would be intersting.... but too loud and then the endless stereo mods to be louder than the pipes when you do that would be next..... ok then dont forget the specially molded ear plugs so you can sit in the vehicle when this is all happening..... then the ear specialist when you cant hear anymore.... but if your young you'll bounce back right? Just a thought. All joking aside I am just say this because due to some factors when I was younger I have a hearing loss in a specific range. Seems a lot of money to make yourself deaf... LOL

I spoke to the dealer before the install and they told me after the cats to prevent issues. You can take a peek Thursday at kimballs..Nice clean install.

good point, but wouldn't that defeat the purpose ? on srt4's they are before the cat
some come with a cat like this

but on cars with a regular ecu, it will throw a cat code , unless the 02 sensor is moved behind the cat on the downpipe

Our Chargers have 1 sensor before the cat, and 1 sensor after the cat.
same here, its the secondary sensor that throws the code
but people usually put em on for no restriction at all, especially the cat, like this right after the motor
