Exaust Cut Outs

Anybody here running exhaust cut outs? It seems to me they would give the best of both worlds - quiet when you need/want it, and unrestriced when you don't. Especially if you went with 4" from the turbo to the cut out and with the factory system behind it. All for about half the cost of a good exhaust system. Anybody running this set up? I've seen them on Youtube, but would like more input. I'd love to hear how well they work, whether you get better MPG and are they worth it/would you do it again. Thanks!

I have some just haven't had the time to install yet. I didn't buy them for sound though. I have stacks and wanted a way to keep soot off things I'm hauling that are white

Mike (mudrunninpig) has dual electric exhaust cutouts, with 8in. aussie stacks

the only way i see a cutout working though is if you have a setup like mike's

E-450 exhaust question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello, I am new to the forum and I am in need of your opinions.
I have a 2008 e450 (Cube van) with a 6.0L turbo diesel engine.
It is a delivery truck and it is typically loaded while driving at 70 mph.
Its average fuel economy is 9.5 mpg.

Can I improve the fuel economy by adding a free flow exhaust system.
If I can , by how much?

Thanks for your help in advance..

Just curious does the 08 6.0 have the DPF? I noticed NO mpg gain by installing a 4" system.
