Can exhaust cutouts be installed on verts?

I have a modified 2013 ZL1 convertible with long tube headers w/o cats with 663 RWHP, and I'm interested in installing some exhaust cutouts but Iv'e been told there isn't enough room under there to install. Does anybody else who owns a vert have these cutouts installed? If they are installed where exactly are they located on the car and what brand do you have? Pictures would really help! Thanks for any information provided.

My car is a hard top. I am running a set of noweeds diverters on my car. They are mounted in the S bend of the exhaust right after the cat delete pipe. Do you have a picture of the underside of the car? I would think that they could be mounted in the same place.

Thanks so much for the pic but I believe this is a pic of a coupe. I will try and check with no weeds directly. I'm surprised no one with a vert has replied to the question?

I have the No Weeds Dual mode diverters on my Convt. They work great!

Can you post a pic of your exhaust where the No-weeds are installed? I don't think the SS vert has the same bracing as the ZL1 vert?

Sorry I don't have any pics of the undercarriage other than the video above.
There was one brace that was removed when the cutouts were installed. These cars are so much more rigid than the older one. I have no intention of racing or tracking my car so it won't cause any issues. You can get after market bracing that doesn't interfere with the cutouts like these. https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMR-Suspens...53.m1438.l2649

Behind the axle. It's a better spot anyways - keeps the noise behind the car instead of beating on the underside of the cabin, and keeps the fumes behind you when idling in traffic.

Mine has them. A word of advise would be to make sure u buy some low profile ones. Mine has reg run of the mill and are tuck up tight n still drag more than I would like.

Hey Chris, lots of questions like what kind do you have, where did you get them, how much and where do you have them installed at on your car? Do you have any pictures you can provide, that would be really nice. I have been looking at the No-Weeds brand so far. I didn't know they make a low profile type? I'll keep looking, thanks.
