Cam62,

As I just wanted to see what it would sound with the baffles open, I simply took a long wire and wrapped one end around one of the metal tabs on the out side of the Springs. Then I manually twisted the valve open and strapped the other end of the wire to the exhaust hook at the very back end of the car. This way the wire holds the valve at the open position

Admittingly, this method could be considered a "bit" low tech , but it works and can be easily reversed at any time.

Well, As long as you have the AFM active it does make some odd noises when it kicks in. For me the engine seemed to exhale a bit less restricted, but not worth it as long as AFM is active.

The dealer will simply install two "O" rings around each spring. The source of the rattle noise is the spring it self. So their solution is to put two o rings around each spring which keeps it from bouncing back and forth when they are closed (not under tension).
