Actually yes.

But I'd have to have a shop do that. Which I am trying to avoid. Looks like I may not be able to avoid it. But some fabing will be necessary even with that rout. Last thing I want is more back pressure right now.

I wondered if that would create a 'friction' point with them closed.

But that set-up would be much like the noweeds. Problem is once I pay the shop to do the fabing I could have just bought the noweeds bolt in quarterpipe setup.

That curved pip there I took off and put the cutout on the header pipe and that position will not work anyway. the motor hits the Tranny brace and hangs too low.

Here are my cutouts installed on the guy's car who bought them along with my whole exhaust.

Then what if you do this? Will they not fit here? Could you trim the edges of the Y-pipe down to make it fit?

The wye could be welded in just about anyplace like Joe mentioned. Depends on how permanent you want it.

Problem is the style of cut-out.

The big 'blade' part is the pita.

The red below hits the pipe just like the pic shows.

The Yellow the pipes curve too fast and so that part is not long enough. Even if I cut the 'Y' pipe a sleeve clamp won't have enough to bite to.

The cutouts you bought look big compared to some others I've seen like QTP or DMH. That makes them harder to mount, especially if you're not willing to cut up that Y pipe and weld them in. I'm no expert though and I cheated by having my shop cut them and weld them.

Two questions:

1) Where are they supposed to mount as designed?

2) Are the flanges perfectly circular - allowing you to drill new holes, if need be and twist the motor assembly 180° (letting the "big blade" fit)?

1) I think on a truck.

Meaning they are not shaped or designed for a tight and low fit.

2) There are 3 positions on a triangle. Only three bolt holes.

Just cut a couple holes in the floor pan, and let those bad boys open up in the cabin right under your seat...

I'm betting then, they'll be LAAAOOOWWWD enough...

You are correct. I like the design because they really can't leak. And there is no obstruction at all as far as a center 'axle' in the opening.

They don't really go on a truck only but certainly not under a Vete or 5th Gen Camaro.

Gonna run by a muffler shop after I talk to the Marine Recruiters in the morning.

So the assembly should be able to rotate 120 deg if needed? (3 different positions)
