Headers? None for your car.

Cutout? Probably hurting you. Until you do something else to improve flow (cam, rockers, ported heads), you should keep it stock, other than maybe a high-flow cat.

You have basically the same exhaust setup as a Series 1 SUPERCHARGED car. And they can't outflow their exhaust.

Too much flow is a bad thing on stock cars.

There are only two cars on this Forum running a cutout, and they flow ALOT more than you do.

I think you better search... Its been discussed a bunch of times.
But the main idea is that if you take away back pressure, you loose torke.
