Default exhaust cutout

where would be the best spot for an exhaust cut out

legal: before the muffler like the borla exhaust for camaros
both legal/ non: before the cat and is this the same size as the pipes running after the cat?

the cutout has a bolt on blacker plate to use the exhaust system or to run through strait

It'* a Y-pipe you have to weld into the system. And I don't see it doing anything for you but hurting your performance. You need to be flowing ALOT more through the motor before you even think about it.

There are only two cars on this Forum running one. One is manual, mine will go manual or programmed/electric. Both of us are seriously (more than double) outflowing your car.

I suggest working on more basic proven mods first.

Read my reply above. That will hurt your low-end to the point that any high-end gain would be pointless.

Most cars here keep stock exhaust components farther than you will likely ever see on the quarter mile.

Edit:

I recall a recent topic about using GN headers by you.

How about you tell us what your goals are and what your realistic budget is, and we can save you the time and effort in trying to dig stuff up and ask about it?

I've had a DMH cutout on my car for a few months. Great quality with a warranty.
A buddy of mine has had his for over year through two winters.

A cutout has been proven to give 1-2 tenths at the track on a CAMed n/a car.

But as mentioned, on a stock car it'* going to hurt you.

Mid 12'*? Wow. Ummm.....Ok.

Get the thousands ready. You'll need heads, a turbo, and alot of other custom work. And when you're all done with that, start looking at exhaust cutouts. But forget the cheap summit crap.

Get a QTP if you have a budget to match your ambition.

That'* an off-topic issue for somewhere other than this.

As far as your goals on your 95, I think you need to tell us what your realistic budget is. Then we'll tell you what'* possible.
