Default What size cutout for stock exhaust? And where did you put your toggle?

I'm looking to order an electronic cut out. What size do I need for completely stock exhaust?

Also, for you guys with e-cutouts, where did you install the toggle switch at?

Is an open cutout loud enough to drown out cold start piston slap with stock exhaust?

2.5". I installed the switch in the ashtray. I have a DMH one for sale if you are interested. LMK

I put my toggle just to the left of the cigarette lighter. That way I can bump it open or closed with my palm still on the shift ****.

what cutout you getting? im hopefully buying one this weekend and have been mulling over the options non stop. i was between dmh and race ready. than i just found this one the other day from racelandus. $119 1 piece electric cutout with remote (compared with the $350 from rrp). it apparently uses a window motor to open and close it, but from the videos online it seems to open super fast compared to other brands. just a heads up to a otherwise unknown brand that might be worth considering.

What size is the stock exhaust? You should match up the same diameter as the stock pipe, no?

For manual transmission cars you can put our toggle switch in the ash tray. But other places are the kick panel, center console or you can get our controller which you can leave loose.
Our part number for a 4th gen is QTEC30CP. If you have any questions feel free to call us.

Greekey, i like it!

Liberty, i'm sure they're not hard to find. I used to see them a lot on computer accessories type websites. I googled "red toggle switch" and got that image from google images.

How are you guys routing the wire inside the car? I'd like to run the wire and mount it myself before or after getting a shop to install the cutout.


EDIT: Jegs has a it.
