My guess is your crank position sensor is DOA. The ECU waits for a signal from the...

It'll make it sound faster without it, but it won't be.

Seriously? A muffler muffles the sound. That's it's sole function.

It won't change, but your desire to hear it will. Believe me, after a while the racket gets pretty annoying.

I think the one in the 633 is a "082", but it may be the one in the 635. They are model specific. An AFM from a 633 won't work with the DME in a 635. I'll check later and let you know. :thumbup:
