When I had my LS1, I had a cut out on it and loved the sound; to me, it was the perfect exhaust sound. I have since replaced that vehicle with a 2002 Sierra, 4.8L.

Has anyone here has put a cut out on this size engine? How does it sound?

I have one on my 4.8, and I like the way it sounds. I have never really heard it from outside, cause I can never find somebody I trust to drive it around. A few members have heard my truck, so maybe they can chime in.

VicRed - If you haven't heard it from the outside, then I would highly suggest getting someone to drive it for you. The sound is incredible.

03GMC - Thanks for sharing the vids. Sweet truck. :head:

yoskater - What are you waiting for? It's a nice day out today. At least it has to be if you are in So Cal.

On a side note, yes, it was a beautiful day today.

That sounded so good. :hitit: Is that on a stock 4.8L?

Thanks for sharing. :rocking:

Also, what are the deminsions of the pipe that it will be going on? Is it 3" or 3 1/2"?

I bought the 3" cutout from Summit. My engine is stock other than intake and a Nelson Tune. I should have a new vid to post up by 9:00 tonight.

So do you drive around with it open or just open it every now and then?

I drive around with it open 90% of the time. If I ever have to drive more than an hour out of town, I usually cap it up. After awhile the constant droan gets to me, and gives me a headache. This is the second cut-out I have had on the truck. The first one was with a Flow 40 series, and was located directly under the pass. seat. At certain RPMs it would vibrate my interior, and cause rattles. My current set up is with a 14"x6" round magnaflow turned down before the axle. The cut-out dumps out right where the bed and cab meet. If needed, I can go out and take some quick pics. Just lemme know.

Well, I purchased one today from Summit. I'm hoping, crossing fingers, that I get it tomorrow since I am not that far from Akron, OH. :rocking:

Did you get an electric cutout? Can a cutout be used with the stock muffler? I would think so since it is being put on before the muffler. Right? :think:
