cutouts

Where is the best place to mount exhaust cutouts on the 4.6 bird stock exhaust? I'm just wondering how it would sound and if its worth it. I'm looking just for sound. NO performance.

It will probably sounds best (read: loudest) before the first cats, but that location is not ideal. I recommend after the primary cats but before the 3rd, just like it was mentioned.

Quick time performance or something close to that has a good electric cut out system. If you can't find it then just google it...

when i get my kit put on should i just have them convert it to 2 1/2 from the manifold back? I have a 2 1/2 cat-back. Can the shop do that with the tbird stock cats?

i built my own cutouts using two ford 65mm throttle bodies but i had to go mechanical linkage. I could have looked around and found a electronic actuator.
