Default E-Cutout: Raceland Vs. DMH

I've currently got a 14" Magnaflow on my 2010 Hemi Ram w/ Duals. It's actually the Mufflex DODM14. I've had no problems with it and it sounds excellent, even in MDS mode.

I want more.

I've had a DMH E-Cutout before. It was on my 2008 Ford Sport Trac Adrenalin 4.6L. I loved the way it sounded. However, it burned out in 6 months. It endured only one upstate, NY winter.

I've heard very good things about the Raceland Switch N Blast E-Cutout.

I like the the Raceland has a remote and the install is very simple because the wiring is basically plug and play without the need to alter my interior to add a rocker switch for cutout operation. I also like that the Raceland unit is all one unit. The Y-pipe and motor are a single part. I also feel that this unit has a superior motor and plating/protection from the elements as compared to the DMH unit. I also like that this unit is based on a clamp installation instead of a weld in. Most of the units I see are clamped on. This unit seems to open very fast. It also looks like it's a one touch button that open/closes 100% automatically? Customer service, thus far, has been excellent, and I've not bought anything yet!

The DMH was a great unit. I feel the need to mention that I purchased this unit used. The E-Cutout is a seperate unit from the Y-pipe. This meant that I also had to buy a Y-pipe. I bought a Dynomax Cutout Y-pipe. It had a nice flange that allowed me to angle the DMH E-Cutout any way I wanted it and, more importantly, I could angle the down turn pipe any way I wanted. This system is basically meant to me welded in. In fact, i've never seen one that wasn't welded in with a DMH unit. I also didn't like holding down a button until I felt it was completely open. I see no reason why you would only want this device only part way open. To me, it's an all or nothing type of mod. I also feel that this type of switch led to undo stress by trying to open or close the unit when it was already in the full open or closed position. It took nearly 4-5 seconds to open/close this unit. Their customer service sucked. They never returned one phone call or email that I sent to them.

I'm wondering, what is your opinion on which brand is better?
