What should be ideal cals for cutting for a 5'3.5 170lbs endo? Oh and what should the ratio be?

impossible for us to say exactly
a pic would help, knowing your bf % would help too
are you counting cals ?
based on what you told us I would start around
try that for a few weeks and adjust up and down 100 cals at a time until you lose about 1-2lbs a week
as for ratios...
if you got 170 g's of protein that would be 680 cals and 30%
then if you go with a MINNIMUM of 25% fat that leaves 45% carbs which looks good to me

This was me a month ago at 168. I gained like 2 or three pounds. I dont know where I messed up. But I assume in that pic i was low BF.

still I can only guess but you look quite solid in that pic
you might want to start at 2500 cals
depending on how many times you train with weights OR cardio

I normally do 5 day week with weight. Cardio is 4 times a week.

that is a great deal of activity
perhaps 2500 is too low

You gotta be kidding? Even for an endomorphic. I have slow metabolism.
