That's cool but have you ever heard our cars without a muffler? Holy loudness.

yes, whats why the benefit of this would be to be quiet most of the time, then when you need to, you can open it up.

Did anyone view the video with the cutout on the WRX. After the cutout is open, and the driver starts reving the engine, the top nut holding the thing together starts to unscrew all by itself. []

One question...don't most engines need some sort of back-pressure to operate correctly? This cutout removes all back-pressure and I've seen and heard of cars actually losing power when switched to straight pipes unless it's tuned for that kind of exhaust.

Cars don't "need" backpressure. It just moves the powerband and increases top end without a certain amount. That said, most BP on the turbo is created in the downpipe anyhow. You might loose a little bottom end by increasing exhaust flow but who races at 2000 rpm's anyhow? That is when you would be flippin' this switch.

I'd like to see some independent testing of the exhaust components offered for the N/A and Turbo PT's. Some will be of value to racers, and some will have no performance benefit to daily drivers. Had duel exhausts put on my first car in 1954. It's a lot more complex now than it was then. [:I]

If you look at it closely, it looks like it is actually screwing itself tighter... righty-tighty, correct?

My bad...it gave a little twitch to the left, then started turning right. Guess they didn't have it too tight to begin with.
