Question Exhaust cut outs on my Convertible

I was going to post this in the exhaust section, but I figured as I want to install these on my Convertible this would be a better place. With that said, I am kicking around the idea of installing these ( Quick Time Cutouts ) Has anyone in the convertible family done this? If so a sound clip would be cool and possible a DIY like where did you place them etc.. I am most likely going to have a local speed shop do the work as it appears to be easier with a lift. I read a thread some where on here that there are braces that should not be removed so I am aware of that. Any ideas or suggestions would be great.

Hi Stewart,

I have No Weeds dual mode Electric diverters on my car. I didn't do the install. I had Nickey install them for me. They did need to remove one brace but seen as how I'm not planning to track my car, I was told there wouldn't be any problems with chassis flex.
Here's a video of the electric diverters ie. cutouts

I would go that route but I have to be careful with the visual and emission tests when I move to Cali.

I decided on Doug's Electric Cut outs as they do not require any welding. I looked at quick time but the sales person said that they do not have any model that would fit my car except an entire muffler system at around 1300.00. Yea too much for me, the Dougs complete set with turn downs came to half that. One thing I did not know is all the cut outs are not recommended for cars with catalytic convertors. Have you heard of this or have you had any problems? I am guess the further away from them the better? The instructions say to place them 12 inches behind the exhaust header collectors (what ever they are)

I called Quick Time and was Told that they did not have any to fit my 14 2SS that there was only a cat back with one attached to the muffler. So, I stopped looking figuring since they made them they would know.

damn, I just checked their site and saw this http://www.phastekperformance.com/QT...out-500110.htm
I would have gotten them if the sales person from Quick Time did not lie and try to sell me a 1300.00 system instead.

I used that same oval QT cutout on my Foose Mustang. I bought just the cutouts which were not as easy as they have in the link above. I had a local shop do the pipe cut / installation and welding. My cutouts are before my Cats and loud! I liked the oval design because the car was lowered and a lot of regular cutouts have the motor in an area that gets hit on speed bumps.

That's why I bought the low profile QTP cut outs. I just don't like the open close switch. If someone has changed the switch please let me know and maybe a pic of it if possible.

I bought the wireless keyfob option but wound up not using it. I installed the switch inside the console next to my cig lighter plug. I only use my cutouts when rolling into a show or parade so I did not mind the switch there. Too loud for just normal driving.

Send it back if you don't like it for what ever reason.
