Vac line wire tie works wonders, but JB4 does it better in software.
Correct. It is wide open at idle with exhaust coming out. I was never attempting to get a good exhaust sound i just wanted the low rpm rattle i had to go away. I figured that keeping it all the way open with the vacuum tie method might do the trick but if its already wide open does this mean my actuator is faulty and does not close it at all if it is open at idle and when the engine is off. i have no reason to golf tee/tie the hose off if it doesnt work anyway. Maybe there is only enough vacuum pressure in the hose at certain rpms and that is when i can hear the rattle.
