    I will note that it needs to be closer to the lumbar switch. I put mine a little too far forward and had to make a spacer to bring the switch up a bit. The wiring below was hitting the metal seat track. It's just smooth, curved metal, but the bunch wasn't seating in the hole like it should have.

    Decisions decisions...sucks to here about the shit service!, Maryland speed handles them, I wonder if you order through them and have problems if the service would be better? They are a sponsor, hope they pipe in.

I tapped the power wires with piggy-back style clips into the seat motors wiring. The switch is mounted just in front of the lumbar adjust in the left side of the driver's seat. Nobody seems to notice when I reach down to open them. I wouldn't change a thing.

    That's where I put mine also. However, I ran the wires through a grommet that was already there in the driver side rear wheel well then forward to the driver seat. My DMH low profiles have worked flawlessly for two years now. I open and close them all the time. They are plenty loud outside the vehicle, but a little less ridiculous inside the cabin when placed just before the mufflers.

    Awesome, thanks Brian! Pictures of the infamous "freaking racing exhaust" featured in the YouTube Video! That's exactly how I plan to do mine, post TPIS headers, cats and stock resonator and just before the mufflers. I think GDPossehl has the closest setup to what I have ... Thanks to everyone for the contributions, need to get on ordering and knock it out!

    Unfortunately not. I bought mine through Maryland Speed... talk to someone at Maryland, they HATE dmh and get no better service. They don't even get their calls returned either.
