Looking to get some. Any suggestions?
Also hear different stories about before/after the cats.
Also, can i add the cutouts before i install my headers, or should i wait until i get my headers installed?

You will want it before the cats and at the same time as your headers are being installed. Saves time in the end. You will have to relocate the cats lower and build a crosspipe that goes from each end of the manifold pipes (drivers side to passenger side) and put the cutout right there in the middle. So basically you're making a H-pipe if you will and putting the cutout in the middle where the it makes the "H"

after the cats is what i would go with... not as ear piercing loud but still very very loud... if you have true dual exhaust get 2 and mount them anywhere after the cats and if you have merging exhaust you can use one or two...

Here.. if you just want minimal gains go with after the cats. If you want maximum gains (but louder) go before the cats. Nuff said... Not like you're going to drive with the cutout open all the time right? so leave them before the cats.

Thanks KaPPaBaLL

When you say "relocate the cats lower", do you mean more toward the back of the truck or actually lower to the ground?
Also, I have an o2 sensor before and after each cat. do i install the cutout in front of the 1st sensor or between the sensor and the cat? Dont want any warning lights on my dash, ya know?

Lower in the line, so towards the back of the truck. Leave the O2 sensors in the cats, don't worry about the placing of the cutout. You just may need to get some longer wiring if you move the cat down.

I'm with you- since I've put my cutout on it's open almost ALL the time. I drove my truck to the coast with my wife (4 hr drive) and about half way there she asked is it always this loud?? Oooops. How's this? (as the motor closes it up)

Don't you lose back pressure? I would think it would hurt your performance, definately louder?

Yes you do lose backpressure, but our engines LOVE it. I'm making 351rwtq with my cutout open. I dont think I lost any low end power!!!
