Exhaust Cut outs write up

K guys it took me around 5 hours but i finally got it done. it was super easy to hook up and wire but a couple of trips to the hardware store and beer slowed it down lol

before i did anything i made sure that the cable that goes to the cutouts would be long enough. I tried to route it through the whole in the engine compartment but it was not long enough. so i had to route it under my carpet to the passenger side near the kick panel and drill a 1/2" hole to get the cable through.

Here are the steps i used to install it:

Step 1
Find the location on where you want to mount the switch. after some careful measuring i drew out a outline a lil smaller than the actual dimensions of the switch so that i could later take a file and carefully make it to the desired opening.


Step 2
Make the whole near the driverside kick panel.



Step 3
Wire up the ground to one of the factory locations and tap your wire into a 12volt sorce. i decided to use some crimpers i had to just tap into the power for my off-road light switch


Step 4
get under the truck and mark the location you want to cut the exhaust for the cut outs. I marked mine 1/4 inch bigger than i needed just in case. after you have it marked go ahead and use a cut off wheel to cut it off or a ricipricating saw




Step 5
Install the cut outs and the flange and wire it all up.. this part was actually very simple since the kit comes with quick connects. after i connected the Y pipe i double cheked which way on the switch was to open and close. Once i knew that i inserted the switch into the whole with the open part being up.


Step 6
Double check all the connections and that all wires are away from any sharp opjects or heat.




hope you like it.. i have not driven in it yet but it sounds really cool... here is a small video



This stuff will be for sale soon... just finalizing the prices but you can expect a kit like this to run around 250-300

No doubt Raul! Man, thats trick! I was thinking the same thing if you had stacks, so you wouldnt be annoyed. when I order my stacks, I would run the cutout to the stacks, off the "Y", and then keep the straight pipe out the back but shorten the pipe up, so its hidden. that way I dont waste all that nice SS pipe I have, or soot up under the truck.
