Electronic Cutouts on WK2 SRT

Are there any objections or worries concerning adding cutouts on a SRT Jeep with stock exhuast? This would be most likely just for sound...

-Where would they be located? ( before the middle suitcase muffler or after befor the resonators?)

Re: Electronic Cutouts on WK2 SRT

To get max performance benefit (IF ANY) they need to go b4 the cats but just for noise they can go b4 the suitcase mufflers.

yooo man... i just did cutouts this weekend to the rig... first off they sound incredible!!!!! like wow!!!! words dont describe what it sounds like. i installed mine right before the cats... there is a little opening and we did it there... i cut the hole... welded the cutouts into the pipe and then hooked it up... the battery is right underneath the passenger seat so i ran it right up through there for the wiring. now i have a borla on mine but the sound and the power when your at WOT from a roll is remarkable!!!! ill be getting a sound clip soon and ill post it. but for the 500 bucks that it costs to get the cut outs (i used QTP cutouts) the money is definitely worth it and very easy for install.

i have had the cutouts now on for a week and i havent thrown any codes or had any issues.... ill tell you what though.. open the cutouts and stand by your car for a minute..... smells like pure gas hahaha

but i am completely pleased with how it turned out... they are awesome... the best part about it is that you can go back to your normal exhaust whenever you want. it isnt something that you constantly have to deal with you know.... its really the best of both worlds.

Please try to get a photo with the video too. I am Soooooooo looking forward to the video. I plan to do the same thing with my wk2SRT when I get it.

Im hoping that it sounds similar if not better than this 300

specifically what I am looking for is at about 1:28 minutes

Well, I am mostly looking for the bass. I Love the old school big block sound. That video is about as close as I can find to my ideal sound. I dont really want the crazy loudness but with cutouts you can have it whatever way you like. I will be grabbing some pop corn and anxiously awaiting the video
