    I like some of the stuff Foe plays around with,, im not so embarrassed now to post up my latest idea.

    something tells me you would be better off with a vac actuated check valve,,, it would be set to be open the amount you want for normal running but the door would pull open when there is no or little vac by a spring assisted lever.

    im just makin this stuff up as I go.


    so,, what the heck are you planning to achieve with this?

    quiet "pass inspection car" but a loud hard core sound when you want to intimidate the other guy?

    We don't have inspections here. I have a 2.5 inch non cat H-Pipe, but a 2 inch dynomax turbo cat-back. I like the cruise sound, but with my build, I start running out of flow around 4k. At WOT, these will open to uncork the restriction and sound great, but ultimately let me keep my mellow, drone-free cruise sound. Active exhaust, for the win. This is done on new Corvettes and the GT350s, and the Hellcats; why not me?

    I'm pretty sure WOT cutout is always active. Once I pull her out for the spring, I'll verify. Right now, it's stored 50 miles away.

    NOW I'm excited. I've discovered that the flanges I need to have made are dimensionally identical to 2.5" T3 turbo outlet flanges. I CAN JUST BUY THEM!

    Update. WOT cutout, at the moment, is non-feasable. The relay is grounded (on) the moment you turn on the ignition and stays on until AC is requested. It function like a backwards AC clutch relay. I could fake a constant AC request, and the valves would cycle open at startup a second or two then close, but that would effectively also either disable the AC clutch or force me to install some sort of manual interrupt in the circuit. I'll still go forward using a 3 position switch for it (Off, Auto, Manual On), and I'll add the active control when I figure it out. I considered a nitrous WOT switch, but that's my low-tech backup plan.

    How about using the n/c contacts of a relay to activate the cutout?

    So, I've been moving forward, here are some pics. I may have a workaround solution for my issue with the way the WOT cutout works, I'll update on this later. For now, pics.
