    Unhappy Electric Cutout question?

    I may be posting this in the wrong section(Im new here) But i have an 03 wrx with 3" full turboback exhaust. But my friend is selling me a 2.5" cutout for me. for a bangin deal.

    My question is, can i use a 2.5 cutout on a 3 inch exhaust? i know ill have to get new piping to make it fit like a 3"-2.5"..... CUTOUT... 2.5"-3" To make it fit.

    Thanks!

    What I know of electronically operated cutouts is they always leak, and the motors fail repeatedly..

    Electric cut outs use a motor to open and close the cut out. He's saying they fail often which is what I've heard as well.

    The motor quits working.. either the cutout is closed and you can't open it, or it's open and you can't close it. I always hear of people replacing the motor, only to have it fail again in three months.


    You can get a 3" manual cutout from Summit Racing for $30 (cost me $20 to have it welded in at a muffler shop). I've had one for years and never had a problem with it.
