Well, I finally convinced myself to order the DMH Performance Electric Exhaust Cutout! I know a few of you guys have cutouts, my question is how far after the cats did you mount them? Have you had ANY problems with your cutouts (any brand/make)?? Hopefully it will get here this week and have it installed ASAP! :D I chose DMH because of their 4 year warranty... and I probably wont even have the cutout on my truck for 4 years! Hell, I might not even have my truck for 4 more year! :LOL:

Have you got any pictures of that? Do you have a short Turndown on it?

I was looking at that myself. Does it leak or anything? How long have you had it?

Having a Regular cab, I was limited to the places I could put mine. Right now it is dumped where the Cab and Bed meet. I had a McCord powerplate, and the only problem I had were some screws inside came loose and the motor lost contact with the butterfly. I good man by the name of Dr. Doggy took it upon himself to take it apart and fix it, so now everything works great. As for leaks, it was airtight at first because of the silicone that surrounded the blade, but after awhile it all burned off and started to leak. It was only noticible when you got under the truck and really listened for it.

Nice! Thanks for the feedback guys... as far as leaks, I am covered with the warranty, I hope. Loose screws.. probably covered too, but I will just fix that myself.. IF any of these problems occur. I will get pictures/videos up quick! :D :D Shit, laptop battery is about to die... brb! :LOL:

I think it is rather Funny that It Says 'Unleash the Power'.... considering how much power you are going to loose when you have that thing opened :nono:

You definitely want to run that after the cats to gain back as much backpressure that you loose from not going though the muffler.


How much was the electric cut out? I had a pair welded on my last ride with wingnuts for 50 bucks. I liked it for like two days and then capped it up forever. I just don't like how a NBS truck sounds driving down the street trying to be a 50's or 60's hot rodder with straight pipes.

:LOL: ... I know, "unleash the power!" is funny... I guess maybe if you had a 500hp engine.. :shrug: I agree with you totally, the cutout is for sound only, if I don't like it, I know a few people I can sell it to. We'll find out soon! Oh, I paid a lot more than you did... lol.. :eek:wned: :bawl:

Cali smog guys can kiss my ass! :moon: I don't know if they will mess with me or not for it (probably), but if I ever need a smog check on my 2002 Silverado, I will just remove the cutout for 1 day.. lol.

Plus, I don't know if I am gonna keep the cutout or not... but since they didn't get my "can I pay for faster shipping" e-mail, it will be here on Thursday :flame:

We'll see...
