MOD NAME: Golf Tee Mod

MOD COST: FREE, $0.00

MOD BENEFIT: More low rpm 'rumble' exhaust note.

MOD DESCRIPTION: Remove vacuum line that closes a metal 'butterfly' valve. plug removed vacuum line with a golf tee or similar.

In the picture below you will see a metal butterfly valve in the right exhaust pipe, immediately above this is a rubber hose that connects to it. Nothing needs to be done on the exhaust side, as it will just stay open now.


This is the rubber hose that you pulled off of the exhaust, you can see I plugged the hose with a wire crimp.
