    Ok, I think I've got a way to have everything I want. Yes, that's a dp3t double pole triple throw switch (good for you for catching that). Positions left to right are manual, off, auto. The weirdly shrunken looking relay in the bottom right is for the cutouts.

    Here's what that looks like

    I'll have to go back to the datasheet to answer that. I haven't wired it yet, too many irons in the fire.

    Update.
    Today I blew the dust off this project and cut my H-Pipe, then welded in the flanged pipes it appears I fabbed 2 WHOLE YEARS AGO. I mounted up the TB's and as expected, they leak just a tiny bit around the plates. I don't care about that, but what I DO care about, is that if exhaust is flowing through them at all times in ANY measure, they're going to run hotter than I wanted. This whole thing may just self destruct; but if it doesn't, I'll try to start wiring up simple controls I can operate while driving, before going on to build the integration I've planned on from the beginning. At least I've managed to move my little experiment onto the vehicle. Finally.
