    Cutout Location

    Im about to install a whole new exhaust everything (LT's, Catted Y, SLP LM II)

    My Question is where to put the cutout(s)

    Right after the headers, but that means i have to weld the cutouts right on the headers right? or can i get clamps or something besides welding..

    Otherwise i would put one cutout behind the ypipe, but i have a buddy who says putting a cutout that far back won't sound any different, i think thats bullshit

    What's everyone think/ sugest?

    most who have 1 cutout, put it under the rear passenger seat....there is an indentation there that it tucks up into...almost like it was made for it.....if 2 are in your plan...6-8 inches back from the collector or somewhere there...a friend put his 8" back...sounds wicked.

    so if i got two then i would weld the directly onto the headers, or a ways down but still before the y pipe joins?

    dont weld them on there, get the flanges on the headers to bolt to the pipe, then 6-8" back on the Y pipe after the headers
