If you have a large motor over 400 cu then go with the 1 7/8 other wise just use the smaller headers. The larger headers will cost you low end power on a smaller motor.

That depends on the rest of your exhaust. If you still have the stock exhaust system after your headers it won't help at all.

Yes it will be louder with the cut out open. The headers will flow more air out, so the cut out will make it even louder, as in get a ticket louder.
