So i had an hour to kill before class today and once again boredom got the better of me. Made some cut outs out of some pipe i had laying around and welded them on right before the muffler.
JESUS CHRIST! This ****er is loud as balls. Sounds like a big ass 4x4 red neck truck now. It's awesome. I'll try to snap some pics and video in the next few days.

I can respect customization and innovation to vehicles but I don't think I can understand making a luxury vehicle sound like a beast. To me, that's just kind of taking away from what an Escalade is all about, but hey it's not my vehicle.

You did all that in an hour while waiting for class?

Not planning on driving it around with the cut outs open, just want to do it to see if i gain anything at the track. This way i can see how much the stock catback is hurting me, if any.

You did cutouts that you need to get under the truck and manually remove before you can use them? If you really want cut outs on your lade, you need to go with electric cutouts, hit the switch they open, hit it again they close.

EXACTLY. Personally I would never do that to an Escalade. Heck if you would a loud ass truck go buy a diesel pick up or something... just my opinion. Escalades are too nice to be all loud I think, but hey its just my opinion - no offense.

Funk that. These are one time use cut outs. i'm not gonna be all red neck and roll around with a loud ass truck (ok well i did the first day, but that was just for shits and giggles). These cut outs only purpose it to see how much the stock muffler is holding me back when i go to the track next week. After that one time open they will probably either never be open again or i will remove everything after the headers and go with a fully custom exhaust.
Plus i had those on my SS. They are over priced pieces of junk.

That's insane. I'd love to hear a drive by video and see vids of your runs at the track. :D Love it or hate it, this is an interesting thing to see on an Escalade. :thumbsup:

I agree with Rolex. This guy is innovative and handy to knock that out in a quick hour before school. The Escalade is a refined vehicle but that 6.0 sounds amazing when not restricted. Post those track vids!
