Who was it around here who coined the phrase "Bee Army" ?

That cutout is gonna sound like a pissed-off bee on steroids.

If it was an i5 I would agree but with it being a 5.3 it should have a much more throaty sound. Although I have an i5 with cutout right off the header and everyone that has heard it likes it so far. A few eh-quality sound clips here: http://www.355nation.net/forum/engi...ooking-exhaust-your-i4-i5-v8-listen-here.html

I definitely want to see/hear some sound clips of this thing!

Is this just a volume/tone thing or is the flow that much better straight out of the cut out to give you that much more top end?
In theory the cutout should flow far better because you have less piping/bends and no cats or muffler to force the exhaust through but it also depends on the size/quality/style of cutout and piping and where it is located.

I cut the rear cats off and the cut-outs fit in the same location.
I know that sounds easy but it was not. A lot of mockup, fit , adjust, refit, clearance,
in, out, up, down, you get the point.
Sorry no sound clips yet guys) - but I will tell you this - when you hit the switch you cant wipe the grin of your face.
