We Installed the Mild to Wild, so we can open and close with the push of a button. It only took my girlfriend about 30 minutes to install and put back together. Well worth it!

I did the fuse pull trick a few weeks ago and I like it. I think it makes my car a little louder but nothing that I can't handle. Matter of fact, my Maggied SS was much louder than my Z is.

YES! Did it before leaving the dealership upon delivery and have not looked back! Never even drove it with the fuse in!

Is the "MILD to WILD" conversion legal in TEXAS as far as getting an inspection?

Literally the easiest thing I've done to a car except maybe put air in the tires, lol.

No reason for it to be illegal.

Putting in Mild mode is stock exhaust operation so you should pass inspection period.
Putting it in Wild mode is allways open so you may or may not pass inspection.

But having the device on the car in general will not cause you to fail if in Mild mode. However, why not save the money and just pull the fuse. I did and have not looked back. Not like it's hard to get back into the area to put the fuse in before an inspection if thats what your worried about.

Did the fuse pull a couple of weeks ago and like the pops and gurgle. Not bad on the highway and really cool on the downshifts. Was it worth it....YES!!!

Just pull the fuse. No need to pull the relay. You won't get a code.

Ok I have read all the post on this[I think] and no one has asked or answered but does this give you a performance gain or does it just sound better? I believe the flaps open when you are at wot,correct?

In the Corvette its worth 4-5 hp with the flaps opened so I would say, yes, its worth some extra hp in the Camaro also. I can see no reason why it would not be worth a similar bump in power. JMHO.

Ok I guess tomorrow I will do the fuse pull. I like the way my sounds now but if it is loud inside the car at highway speeds I will probably put the fuse back in.
