    The stock exhaust is very silence, but limits performance.
    We have two solutions when looking more performance:
    Changing the entire exhaust system like Oettinger, but it sounds louder and expensive
    The other solution is to put this cutout.
    It's a pipe in Y that we put before the muffler. With a button instaled on panel, we opens or closes the shaft.

    wouldnt that reduce your power? Doesnt an exhaust rely on being a certain length to aid in the removal of gasses?

    Does that act as a sort of `overflow`, am i right in thinking the majority of the gases will still take the normal route through the system ?

    Sorry but that is the stupidest thing I have seen!

    Get a proper exhast or leave it stock.

    The problem with this is when the valve is closed the exhaust gases will cause turbulance in the exhaust. Back pressure on the Y valve is gonna be the issue here.
