Default Muffler to Straight Pipes switcher thingy

i dont know what to call it but heres what im lookin for: its a device where it goes some where on the exhaust system and you hit a switch and it goes from running normally out the muffler to being straight pipes and can switch back again. i.e. for city driving to country driving. does anybody have anything like this?

i am trying to find one online but to no prevail since i dont know the name of it i was just thinking of making one out of a y pipe and some sort of actuator or something. any suggestions?

i know it will sound like ***t but i dont care, i like pissing people off

Your engine won't flow enough to benefit from having an open exhaust system.

If ur gonna get an exhaut cutout u might as well pony up the $$'* and get an electric cutout!! That way u could sit at a light and open her right up for a few then just switch it back to normal!! Thought about doing this...but didn't find much use in destroying my car!!

The electric cutouts have a bad habit of motor failure due to exposure to heat and road salt/debris.. They make some that are operated by a cable, generally a better quality piece anyway.
