    who,s going to be the first to install a switch that will allow you to keep them open for startups or whatever. Don't have my cat yet. What do you guys with your cats think. Do you think it would be a noticeable difference at startup?

    I'm pretty sure that mine is open on a cold start up. after 30 sec it quiets down.

    That would be great if they do. Can someone else verify?

    I would like to hear the way my cat sounds from out side when driving by ! So maybe I will need to meet up with someone who has one so I can hear there's. Or let my wife drive it with the red key ! NOT!!!

    If there were a "factory" or MOPAR mod that would allow the addition of cutouts that were compatible with all of the sensors and electronics and it didn't pose any warranty issues, I'd install it in a heartbeat. Maybe it's "redneck" like Train Horns mounted under the RAM pickup, but count me in! I want to rattle the teeth of whoever is next to me at the light before we ever get off the line!

    they are wide open at start up, only close down when driving steady state to tone down exhaust boom

    The exhaust valves are indeed open at various times.. But in no way is it as loud as cutouts installed before the mid mufflers would be. Look at this video with Richard Rawlings and a pre production Shaker that had cutouts / 'dumps' installed. He was a bit incorrect with some information but no Hellcat owner can say their car is that loud even when the valves are open. ;)

    I have cut uts on a 66 chevy hot rod and they are fun. Switch on the dash puts exhaust through the flow masters or dumps it in front o them

    Mopar has the cutouts but they only use them as pieces on show cars to amplify the exhaust roar... Like in the Rawlings video it's controlled by a key fob with an open and close button and comes with side pipes that send the exhaust out behind the doors... Tried to get a part number to have them but mopar isn't making them production for another 6 months

    Good to know that. I'll be adding some when they release them. Go big or go home!

    With a car like a Hellcat, you can never be loud enough, IMHO! This isn't your grandfather's Nash Rambler!!
