Good luck finding one b/c I've never seen a bolt-on cutout. Besides, you wouldn't want one. It would rattle.

all cut outs are welded in, but one that is manualy opened and closed with the wingnuts is only 30 bucks for the cut out itself, and usually around 50 to 60 for the install...

so it is not that bad to get one on your car.


Good Luck

YES!

look at your y pipe.
its the one shaped like a Y right before your muffler.
check out the rear side after it goes from two pipes to one.
i think you need like a 15mm deep socket or 13mm deep.
i used to disconnect it there and then use a metal clotheshanger i jacked from my sister to make a makeshift exhaust hanger.

TRY THIS BEFORE TAKING OUT YOUR EXHAUST FROM THE MANIFOLDS BACK!

trust me, its damn loud.
you dont need to take out the cats and y.
plus, your car might run like **** with your O2 sensors going crazy.
try what i said, then come back.
its a really quick, free, and reversable process.

you mean you just unhooke dit..and hung the exhaust so from the rear it looked like it was all hooked up but actually it was just hanging there not hooked..up...then when you want it quiet just hook it back on...

so use the metal close hanger to make it hang..off the ground where you disconnected it.

Use a lift

I would say, jack it from the back. Don't let the jack get in your way though.

You might be able to do it without jacking it up, if your car isn't lowered.
