Anyone know of any other company that makes boost activated exhaust cutouts other than soundperformance?
I am sure they are great pieces but so dang expensive.
I really dont want an electric cutout because of moving parts, motor, open/close lag, etc. but from what ive searched soundperformance is the only one making these?
Not trying to spend ~$500 on an exhaust mod. Anyone have any other solutions for boost activated exhaust cutouts?

Too expensive? But they're "on sale", lol!
Personally I'd do electric if it were mine. The new Lotus Evora uses electric from the factory. Pretty cool feature.

ATPTURBO.COM is another one I came across while searching for other options for boost-actuated cutouts but they weren't stocking the parts. Looks to still be the case now..
I don't like electric anymore for the same reasons charlie mentioned and that they just seem to fail either intermittently or absolutely too soon and for whatever reason they more often fail open than closed. I had a QTP one and had that issue. I thought I was just unlucky but others seem to have a lot of trouble with electric across the board. With OEM exhaust tech going in the direction it is, I could see all variations of this stuff getting better though.
