Cut off exaust.

Ok I'm thinking this will be perfect with my up and coming turbo setup, but what I'm thinking about is a automatic cut off exaust. Were there's one a Y shaped pipe coming off of my header connecting to my exaust and the other tip just hangs out to the side. So when I feel like I wonna open her up I press the button inside the car and a motor in the pipe blocks the exaust portion so the exaust fumes go out the other pipe so it would be like me having headers and no exaust piping.

My friend has it on his pontiac firebird with a V8 Cammero engine swap and when he switches the pipes over it halls ass.

Plus it doesn't cost that much to do.

So does this sound good or what?

sound good, no. My exhaust ends with the downpipe. It sounds like a tractor.

HOWEVER

if your not turboed its not a good idea at all. It will sound like crap and your gonna loose much needed back pressure

Correct BUT since it will automatically open up with a click of a button I will fly on the freeway like a loud obnoxious sounding bee.

ATP turbo sells a boost controlled exhaust, acting similar to a wastegate. Opens under whatever boost pressure you set it for. atpturbo.com

personally, Id get a 3 inch all the way back and get some good mufflers to quiet it down....

I don't want it too but DUDE it's a 4 banger so if you have no exaust after the headers it's gonna sound like a BEE. lol

You think it's gonna sound like a V8? NOOOOOOOOO

But I think it's a fun cheap mod. Even if you are not going turbo and you open it up on the freeway to gain more power to pass stupid cars up, it would be worth it.

ricer, that sounds like a awesome waste of money and degrading your focus. Your gonna LOOSE back pressure, making your car SLOWER. Im sure your local police will appriciate it as well. Even if you have a switch to go back and forth your gonna find out after paying to get it done, that your car was faster to begin with. Whatever, its your car.

Ummm ok you are missing the point here. If you open it up on the FREEWAY it doesn't matter. Off the line with it closed does matter. You get it now.
