I just got mine put on and it is awesome. I just love waking the neighbors and annoying the hell out of alot of pompous bastards with there bimmers and fast cars. Its awesome because know one suspects a lexus to sound like a porsche and belive me it does! If any one is interested i can send some pics of install. There is one piece i need to get for the cut out. Its an electric motor which opens and closes the valve with a flick of a switch!

Here is the site for the electronic piece and check out the video its awesome! http://www.mccordcg.com/mpp/mpp.htm :D

A cut out exhaust is a y piece that can split the pipe or pipes befor the muffler. It sounds like some one took all the exhaust off before the headers! its awesome! The electronic piece opens the valve up. Its supposedly a good thing for people with a turbo. I put it on just for the kick ass sound that will surprise anyone! the y piece itself cost around 35 dollars and is a simple thing to install for the pros! its a cheap upgrade.

"Upgrade" would be highly subjective. About the same effect as an old beater which has had the muffler rust out and fall off.

sounding good is always objective...if this individual thinks it sounds good, then good for him...it's like colors...if you like a cetain color then that's cool...get my drift???

imho a cut out exhaust is totally prehistoric for a lexus...but to each his own...if he likes it...than that's all that matters to him...right???

I am puttin one on my car when it comes home to see if there is any difference on the Turbo Cars.. my buddys have them on their supra's they get a lil more performance gain from it after they make some adjustments in their tunes..

having one on a turbo car is a great Idea!!!!!!

Its the next best thing to open down pipe, and will really help your turbo spool.

Having one on your little N/A motor is just annoying. Let me get this straight.... he wants to annoy people and freak them out. What a child. Your the kind of guy that everyone rolls their eyes at as you drive buy or pull out of the lot. I hope you are happy with that.

with a turbo car, the valve train and exhaust pulse is very much quieted by the turbo, there fore it is fine to run open cutout. even better, with an electric cutout, you can run stock exhaust, save money, and have a sleeper effect. When ever you wanna race or get on it, just open it up.
:D

this is cool for a turbo car, ghey for a n/a car. i think its quite a stretch to say a n/a IS is going to sound like a porsche?

i have something like this designed for my exhaust, since it is so loud, you saved me the trouble of having to make one of these with an actuator, so i thank you for that. my system will be closed though, it will be to bypass a muffler

make sure you research... many of the electric cutout companies are known for failing mechanisms.

Ill ask around for yall for the good one. My buddy has a T76 built ls1 2002 SS camaro and Ill ask what he has.
