Default Electric cutouts question

Is it fine to leave the cutouts open for long periods of time? I had read somewhere(on a different forum I believe) about how it would get to hot if left open for a while.

Also what are the pros and cons? I've read that you lose low end power but gain some at higher speeds.

I dont think heat has any effect on the cutout, With mine open I notice a little less low end torque, and I dont think it gives you any extra horses it just sounds real nice.

I ran mine open 99% open for 6 years with no issues to the engine. Hearing on the other hand..
Recently removed my cutout since i am going back to the quiet sleeper sound.
