heres a quick vid of my exhaust mod

i have 2 levers to open and close it, completely bypassing the muffler like the pedro exhaust mod, but with shut off valves.
total cost, parts and shop labor ($47)

I've got basically the same thing, except it's not as loud and cost about $2150.00 more.

3/8's hmm, explain this lever system. In cab or do you have to reach under the bumper? Also... schnell, how much would that switch cost if I wanted to buy one for my valves? Part number?

That's pretty sweet DJ! And to think I paid $750 for my Dansk exhaust. LOL.

Is there any resonance from the muffler after doing that mod?

well for 47 total its definitely not in-cab-electrical-button system, all i have to do is reach under the bumber and open them up.
plus, it doesnt bother me to get out and open them, same with choping of the plastic window. o well

there is no resonance at all, i like it inside and outside the car, in the vid i drove the 1st part and then i let my buddy drive it for a bit so i can hear it from the outside.
