I have a 2010 Crewmax with stock exhaust, and I'd like to add e-cutouts to it. I don't need advice as to whether or not that's a good idea, but I do need some thoughts on the best way to do it. With 2 pipes leading into the muffler (and no Y or H pipe before the muffler), it looks like I'm going to have to add 2 cutouts. Between the cats and the muffler there is a bolted-together exhaust joint; I'd like to add the cutouts on the 'muffler' side of that joint, so if there is a problem at some point in the future I can just replace the muffler side of the exhaust, and not have to pull the cats. Anyone done this? Any suggestions on best manufacturers, or best install techniques? I did a number of searches, and couldn't find cutouts on a stock exhaust...:afro:

I have a good recommendation on how to do it. couple questions though...
is this something that you are going to do yourself or have a shop do it?
are you going to weld the cutouts in or clamp them in?
does your state do emission cks?

My state's emissions testing doesn't include any form of visual inspection; they just hook up to OBD.

I plan on doing it myself. It would be my preference to use high-quality band clamps, but I can weld it if need be. Any thoughts and/or pics you have would be helpful. Did you do the install before or after the DT long tubes?

good deal about ure emissions.
I did the install after the DT's but trust me, I think it will b plenty loud (just not obnoxious and not as raspy since ull still have the cats)
And here is a video I took to show sound, i know its hard to see much, I will post another one explaining as much of the install that I can shortly.
