quick search on the forum and you should find it. but basically you open the flapper on your driverside exhaust pipe to have a louder note at lower rpms.

easiest way to do it is to unplug the vacuum line in the trunk.

yep! no problem... the biggest increase was definitely from 2-3000 rpm cruising around... instead of waiting for WOT to hear your exhaust you can hear from much lower rpms which makes it sound louder


oh and it should burble/pop a little more on deceleration too

Be sure to plug the vacuum line really well with a screw, golf tee, or BB (unless you're talking about the electrical connector).

Sorry, forgot to clarify... Unplugged the electrical plug in the trunk.

I just left it hanging there... Maybe ill go back and tie it to the other wires so it doesnt flap around ,, although, there really isnt much room for it to flap around

almost positive the e90 exhaust is suppose to have an extra resonator that the e92 does not have? could be wrong though
