Cutouts?

I think I might have a slight leak in the LT collector slip-fit joint. I say this because my wide band is a little jumpy which is mounted in the driverside collector. So I ordered a pair of cutouts and band clamps. Went out to see what it was going to take to install them thinking this won't be a big deal. Wrong. As far as I see I can fit the cutout between the collector and cat with some cutting and welding but the dump will be interfering with the cross member ie pointing at it. So I raise the question those of you with LT headers and cutouts how do you have yours mounted?

Thanks,

A little follow-up. I installed the band clamps on the header collector joint and they work sweet. Still even that presented a small problem with the O2s bung on the collector not allowing the band to be positioned properly. But still the band tighten up and formed to the pipe really nicely. This is the first time using band clamps and they will be what I'll use in the future when a clamp is needed. With it jacked up and under it with the engine running I can hear just a faint noise that's maybe a leak in the header gasket. Will pull the fender liner and check everything tomorrow. The fix for the cutouts will be to remove the headers and cut both the cutout tube and collector to a minimum length and weld them together to make them one piece and as short as possible.

Good luck.

I have had two sets of cut outs over the years and none of them lasted very long. After some time they would not close completely. I will probably try again but, it is frustrating.

Does anyone know what cut outs are the best. I have heard that that there is a type that has a baffle that slides back and forth to open and close. I have never seen those but someone told me they are better. The ones I have used were mounted on a center shaft and when it was open it was perpendicular to the exhaust flow. Has anyone ever seen or heard of one that just slides back and forth.

A friend sent me this. Skip ahead to miss the first 4 minutes and you will see the type cut out I was talking about.

Sweet. $300 or $475 depending on 1 or 2 cutouts for the complete installation kit, from Summit Racing.

It does look like it works well. and easy install. I guess it goes on the Santa list.

Thanks Nathan.
