The change in exhaust tone and volume is huge and if I can't control that, then I don't like it so much... to the point where it was getting on my nerves. I love a loud exhaust, but the change back and forth is what bothers me. I would not order this feature on a car.
I have a simple cutout on my 4th gen SS and I guess I'm used to having a consistent (either quieter or louder) exhaust note that I can change as I see fit.
A far less costly alternative to the dual mode system from the factory would seem to be the installation of an electric cutout that can be controlled by the driver from the cockpit.
Just my $0.02.

Best regardSS,

I've never experienced it. But I imagine you're right. I, and this is personal preference now, think cutouts sound a little 'dirty'. I'd prefer something like the dual mode, with the modification required to control it.

That said...this is basically a vacuum-actuated "muffler delete" from the factory. ~$120 says I can get all that, all the time for MUCH less.

It's a modification called "Mild to Wild". It's really hot among the Corvette drivers with the NPP exhaust option.

All the cars I've built were quiet until the throttle opened wide. Stealth is my bag.
Bring back Sunoco 260 to the local station. Some folks STILL drive L-88s and need the good gas.
