DMH or QTP for cutouts. Had one on my '07 and am having a set installed on Wednesday with my new exhaust. I like the QTPs, they aren't as fast opening as the DMH but it never leaked or rattled on me in the 2 years it was on the '07.

I have it on my '09 because it's a boosted, catless bastard that woke the neighbor's dead dog when I fired it up for the first time, but I want a quiet exhaust when around town with the wife.

Shyt................the answer. I've even let her listen to vids, that didn't work. I'll try it my way (print this off, send her home on a plane, do this and act clueless). Thanks, R...

I've got dual DMH cutouts on my truck and love them. I also have a friend that has dual DMH cutouts on his Saleen and they sound great on that too. Quality is amazing and I havent had a problem with them. I would recommend the DMH's

How much did you spend? cutouts themselves and installation?

I bought them for $360 but that's cause they came with the y pipe piece needed to install them properly. I ended up not using that piece though so I'm not sure of the pricing for just 2 cutouts themselves. I think if you buy just 1 its in the ballpark of $150-160.

I also had my entire exhaust done when I had the cutouts put on. I had everything from the exhaust manifolds back taken off and had my LT headers put on along with a complete custom dual exhaust so I don't have an install price on just the cutouts. I don't think its that much though, I wanna say around $300-400 but that includes the wiring up into the interior so you can open and close them whenever you want.
