Homemade mild to wild $25

Well I hated the fact that vendors charge $90-$100 for this. not because I don't like them making money but more the fact all the kit contains is a relay basically. I built my own and the grand total was 22.73 from amazon and then a ring termal, spade terminal, and some zip ties.

I will not post up the info to pee in the vendors cheerio's so to speek but if anybody whats to see pics or wants a parts list PM me.

By the pictures it looks like the parts I souced are the same ones the vendors used.

Right now I will proabaly just leave it open all the time but once I add headers it will come in handy.

There is also an alternative method if you want to use a switch that would take more labor but cost even less.

Leaves the dual-mode exhaust wide open, I'm guessing.

it controls the the exhaust valves. you can leave it stock or disable it so the baffels never close.

car is louder at high rpm if the baffels don't come into play.

Can you post in the DIY section? That is wgat that section is for. For those of us who like to tacklenlittle projects it would be very usefull. Those who want it simple and easy can order from the vendors. I dont think the vendor will get upsetmunlessmyou start posting in his threads.

made a post in Diy with part information. pictures suck because I just snapped some finished shots with my phone.

I will add better pics if I get them. or if somebody wants help doing thier's I will take better pictures next time. I just did not think about it when I was doing it.

I assume your homemade version doesnt have a remote...which is very handy in the production version.

Nice Job on the DIY.

Sorry If I missed something.
