Now that is totally awesome, does the open exhaust help at low end and does it affect the computer at by any means. Will That is a totally awesome Zilla, I really envy you, I want mine like yours. LOL - Love all the mods and has given me inspiration to do the same on my interior as well.

QTP electric exhaust cutout.

You have things a bit backwards. If you open the exhaust too much at the low end, you lose torque. The cutout is used at the high end for hp.

It has no effect on the computer. There are no sensors past the OEM O2.

This controller is programmable. I currently have my two presets at 5% and 10%. Cruising on the freeway, it'* supposed to improve mileage as well, but I haven't taken a long enough trip to see if it does or not.

Keep in mind you have to be flowing ALOT more than mildly modded to benefit from it.

Thats too cool, that kinda reminds me of the exhaust cut outs from JC Whitneys with a cable (remember those). Where can you order that one you have or did ya make that one yourself. Love those mod, I cant stop lookin at them.

The JC Whitney cutouts are crap. Cast iron, and they don't make them in our size. They jam up, and have a very bad reputation.

I bought this one as a complete system, and had it installed. There were some tweaks in order to get it to fit right.

LMFAO - those JC Whitney were crap, hey do you remember the old 1969 -1970 Ram-air GTO'* had the exhaust cut outs and and also ram air ran by cable. they always got so rusty and binded up. I was looking for a set for my 69 GTO judge when I owned it.
