Guess I missed this one earlier. Yes, I have a quicktime performance e-cutout on mine and I love the thing; there's nothing like being able to have a great sounding exhaust (I have a borla dual rear) got from "mean" to "quick, hide the kids, the end of the world is coming!" in under 7 seconds. I have had a bad habit lately of driving with it open just because I love the sound of open headers so much, but I am still able to have a relatively quiet exhaust when the better half is riding with me.

I had mine installed after my y-pipe since I only use it for the sound so I figured 1 was enough. If you are planning to supercharge, then after the headers makes sense, but if you're naturally aspirated then you won't see any performance gains.
There are many companies out there and in the end, all e-cutouts fail over time, and by fail they usually start to rattle when shut. I've had mine for over a year with no issues, so I endorse the QTP product. I know many people that got the DMH setup and have had them fail in under 3 months. A tip to making your cutout last a long time is to not open/close when you're on the throttle, I normally am stopped or cruising with my foot off the pedal when I open mine so there's not a whole lot of extra pressure that it has to fight against to cycle.
