Electric Cutouts Installed - Pics and Vids

Just had my Race Ready Performance electric cutouts installed and have had a huge grin on my face ever since! There is nothing like hearing the unleashed sound of our 5.7L Hemis at WOT with open headers!! Even at idle, our car is pure V8 muscle.

I decided not to use the supplied Y-pipes, as I would have lost a couple inches of ground clearance, so my local exhaust shop created small custom adapters and angled the cutouts down and away from the center of the car.

The left hand side was the easiest, as our cars have plenty of clearance on that side.


The right side was tough, as we have less clearance due to the brake lines, etc..


Overall, the cutouts don't hang much lower than my Corsa resonators when viewed from the rear.


I also have a couple of vids, though my old camera just doesn't do it justice!

YouTube - 300C w/Electric Cutouts

YouTube - 300C Startup w/Electric Cutouts

YouTube - 300C Driving w/Electric Cutouts

I had this done in time for the Woodward Dream Cruise in Michigan and the looks and comments I received were priceless. You definitely get noticed with open headers!

Glad you guys like - I was hesitant at first and even more so when I saw what a quality install was going to cost, but after they were installed - wow... It was either this or new rims, and cutouts definitely gets more attention, plus I can still go stealth when cops are present..

On to the questions:
1) Can any good shop do that or do i have to buy the electric part at a special shop???
>>> Yeah, any decent shop should be able to do the install - you just need to make sure the exhaust shop has both a muffler guy and an electrical guy, as they are two different installs. I went to a local Muffler Man and was amazed at the custom job they did.

2)Are there any other mods that you have to do when you put on a set of electric cutouts??
>>> Nope, when you purchase the cutouts, you should get two cutouts, a wiring harness, and a switch to control them. Nothing else is needed and your car is ready to go after the single shop visit.

3)Can i ask what the electric cutouts set you back?
>>> I purchased them directly from Race Ready Performance for $410. It was a package deal that included the Y-pipes, but I didn't end up using them because it would have robbed me of 2" of ground clearance. You can purchase the kit without the ypipes for $390. Just have the shop cut into the existing pipes and make a small adapter. I looked around and everything was close to $400 - badlandz, quick time performance , dmh, but RRP had a quality product and a lifetime warranty, so it was an easy choice. Supposedly even the best cutouts will leak eventually or the motor will quit, and you will either have to buy a new one or cap off the cutout. I wanted to make sure that I wouldn't have to bite more $$ in the future.

4) How much did the muffler place charge to install? did they do the switch too? where'd u mount the switch.
>>> The install for the cutouts was only a couple hundred, though the install for the wiring and switch was over $500... Way off what other people were getting, though they did a crazy good job, with fuses, tapping underutilized circuits, running the wires up and over the drive shaft, weatherizing the exterior holes, wiring underneath the carpet and seats, and then mounting the switch inside. I could not have done that myself and although I could have obtained a cheaper quote, I wanted to have a quality install.

Here's where I had the switch mounted. At first I wanted to have it by the cup holders, though it would have cost more and gotten in the way. I like it that it is hidden from your normal view - feels more bondish to reach down and flick a switch.


El Calor - I was surprised by how many old school and new muscle car enthuisiasts at the Dream Cruise were impressed by the sound coming out of my car. I probably got about 7mi/gal with all the revving I did that day. Definitely didn't think I would get any attention with a 300c, but everyone wanted to hear her sweet sound!
