The measurements I have seen are 3" pipes for the V6 and 3.75 inch pipes for the V8.. Might want to wait until measurements can be made...

We have been doing this since 2000 and have yet to have an actuator fail due to heat, moisture, cold, ice, dirt, etc.. I'm not saying it won't fail but if it does, we will take care of it. We purposely went overkill on the actuator for durability and ease of use

The extents of our installs go from Canada and New York to southern California- so we feel they are tested.

So you're trying to sell a bolt-in electronic cutout.

These are some pics from our first gen diverters - they are now much tighter, smaller, and stainless with updated electronics. Thanks for the compliment!

This car and our product seem to be a cool match.

So yes- if you need it, we will sell it to ya. Only after we finalize any design changes that may be necessary.

Just for a clarification- this is a diverter not a cutout in the traditional sense. We use 4 butterflies all in sync which would require 4 'cutouts' and an exhaust plumbing master to pull off. This is the industries only self contained dual butterfly piece that gives you infinate range from full stock to full 100% open header/manifold. "Cutouts" just give exhaust an escape path but your exhaust system still receives alot of noise and energy making them less effective. As we open up our system we are progressively closing off the quiet side completely. Believe me, this makes a huge difference!

The "h" design will allow you to leave every factory hanger/bracket untouched and we just shift the loud stuff to the side.

And- with a recip saw and a 9/16" wrench it should only take 10 - 15 minutes per diverter to BOLT-IN YOURSELF IN YOUR GARAGE with NO WELDING plus whatever time it takes to wire the controller.

so if i want a really quiet muffler on one side and a loud one on the otherside would that be possible? id get my a$$ handed to me by johnny law by having a straight pipes, but i really want to be able to cruise with without going deaf, also if not possible do you get any gain on turbo charged systems by having a cutout?

Is it safe to simply release hot exhaust directly underneath the car?

Correct me if im wrong but are you asking if you can be 50/50?

How it works is both diverters work with each other in sync. However, if you want to open it only 5%, (which usually sounds rediculously cool by the way) then leave it there. if you feel even a little bit more is ok with out getting in trouble give it a little more. With our controller you can even program your favorite SWEET SPOT with the middle button- just push and hold it for 3 seconds - similar to an FM radio preset. Then if you need that perfect "barely legal" tone you love just hit the middle button and it goes exactly back there.

To keep the cars engine and computer happy though we want equal pressure on each side so both diverters do the same thing at the same time.

Safe enough. I've seen a ton of exhaust done that way and had several myself, but safe is a tough word. Heck driving a car isn't "safe."

i was refering to having 2 seperate mufflers like the stock one (or quieter) and a loud one like a flowmaster 40 series on the other side and go one side to the other. or does the partial opening still keep sounds under control

I guess the better question would have been, can it damage anything or cause any long term problems? There has to be a reason why all (stock) cars release exhaust away behind the vehicle...
