Finally got my xmas present!

14 posts in this topic

For xmas I got a DMH electric cutout. It just got here yesterday and I wired it up that night. Then this morning I went and had the cutout welded in. It sounds like open headers! Definitely the best bang for the buck I have spent on my car!

Here is the electric cutout...

Wow, I've never even seen an electric cutout.

Usually you see them in sick rat rods & they

are activated by some lever hooked up to a

jimmy-rigged shifter cable, or they're the kind

you open & close manually with three screws

like the SBC-powered '32 in American Graffity.

Good for you, money well spent. :D

the mufflers i have have cutouts on the back, but with just the plates on them, so to open them its a nice hassle getting under the car and flipping off the wingnuts... i cant wait to buy my electronics!

Sounds like the same muffler I put on my car. My original plan was to use the cut-out once in a while, but it sounded so sweet open that I had a pipe made to look like normal exhaust so I could always have it open!

I have a similar situation...

I was planning cutouts for my '73, but the car is lowered just enough to where I can't get my ass under there to remove the plates. So I ditched the idea for now and hope to someday go electric. Of course, the single chamber Flowmasters sound pretty good as is!

Schuby87: That's a very sweet car! I'm very envious

yeah the ones i have are built into the muffler... on the exit side of the muffler, there is one hol for the tailpipe to exit, and the another has the flange with the blockoff plate... so when the plate is opened, the exhaust flows right through.. i cant wait for electrics!

Should do that on the B-bodies. I saw the cable version once.

Great Idea....But the wiring and rubber Grommet is in the line of FIRE. You will no doubt melt both, left open for long

I have some high heat wrap you can have...or relocate the wiring before meltdown. You know all about exhaust temp....

I thought you were a soupa genious?

Are you going to be home later today? Maybe I could stop by and take that off your hands...
