Dude.... NO! If you have a piece of metal welded into the end of your exhaust to make it whistle, ridicule will commence sorry buddy As to your comment about cheap and the best, the old addage applies, you get what you pay for


Darkspork, That they did. I just remember it was even on the news in oakland and I nearly cried I was laughing so hard

Doomsday, cutouts are Y's welded into the exhaust after the header that allow the exhaust to be run through the muffler or basically straight piped for maximum flow/sound. They make them with everything from plates with wingnuts you can remove to a mechanical version where you pull a lever to open it up, they even make electric versions so you can push a button and it's loud as hell. This is very popular with ratrodders, hotrodders, drag racers so they can drive the vehicle on the street without violating noise ordinances (sp?) and still hear themselves think but once they get to the show or strip get max attention/noise and/or potentially max power by making it basically a header only system
