removable mufflers?

can you make your mufflers removable? i want to be able to use them for every day driving, because i like it quiet, but take them off when i go to the track... i'm not expecting any big boost in power, but i hated being so quiet lol.

You could use cutouts or header flange connectors (undo the 3 bolts and then hang rear of exhast on the bottom bolt). When it's time to go home, you bolt em back up properly.

Cutouts are the way to go. They are right on the downtubes in your case probley after the primary cats due to the stock exhaust.

Definitely going to do those, they have cutouts on summit for $28 a piece, and they can just be clamped on, so i should be able to just cut some piping out and slide those on and tighten the clamps. The only info i can't seem to find anywhere, is what is the size of the stock piping on my 97 LSC? Also what kind of saw would be best for cutting the exhaust?

Cut with a small grinder and cutting wheel, around a 4". If not, small handled hacksaw will work.
