So I suppose we can just disable the flap ourselves and essentially get a "sports muffler"? BTW does the flap exist for noise reduction or torque production?
Who said I expected any power gain? I just don't want any power *loss*. I'm only thinking of disabling the flap for the sake of more aggressive sound.I'm pretty sure you won't make any power, though.
Ive always been curious about the exhaust valve thing. I think the sound of the exhaust with holes open is too boomy and tiresome, not sporting in any way, just horribly boomy, and also creates significant resonance in the cabin which detracts from the engines smoothness. I was wondering if there was any way to remedy this (keep valve closed??), and not loose any power/torque. Does the mechanism work in any way to improve power, or is it purely for acoustic purposes.
thanks in advance.
