A big difference-

Chris, you never want to cut into a truss; they are specifically engineered to work as a whole unit and cutting into that unit can be disastrous. It can be done in some cases, but I'd not recommend it, as it will void any warranty on the truss and any subsequent damage will not be covered by insurance should it fail.
