Muffler delete sound question

I had a muffler delete because I don't like super loud custom exhaust but I like a little deeper sound. It sounds great but I notice that when I'm not on the gas hard or when it's just cruising it goes from a deep pitch to a v6 sounding pitch what's with that? Sounds weird.

I have the muffler delete and don't get that either. I do know that when you take your foot off the gas, the ECM cuts the fuel to the engine and if your going down an incline, you will get a decel pop. I love it!

I have the L99, its not super noticeable tho almost just sounds like the pitch is going up and down like when its on cruise control for example. hard to explain its not one steady tone like it should be.

This.

Your AFM is kicking in giving it two separate exhaust notes. If you shift the car with the paddles, it is less noticeable.

Get a Range AFM disabler. Plugs directly into your OBD-II port. Essentially a plug and play system.

The only thing I have from the muffler delete is a low drone which I kind of like.

Seems I get a decel pop anytime between 1200 and 2000 rpm if I down shift. I take it that this is normal? I also wish my sound was deeper but that'll come later I guess.

Sent from the road.

Definitely sounds like AFM kicking in to me. You can tune it out, or try out that Range device.

Best regards,

I think what your hearing is AFM kicking in. You can disable it by tuning your car ( voids warranty) or you can get a Range device. Also you could use this method put your car in S mode downshift with steering wheel paddles to 1st than up to 2nd and then down to 1st and 2nd again and then first; All this while stationary with your foot on the brake this should turn of AFM put once you get out of M mode you have to repeat it to get it to disable. I am not sure about this method but I heard it works.

you dont have to be at a stop to do this..i pull out of my driveway in s mode..i paddle shift to 2nd till i get down to the end of my street...gear down to 1st..i pull away from the stop sign in 1st paddle shifting the rest of my drive. You can downshift in any gear as long as your not going too fast for the gear your downshifting too.then upshift you will be afm free till it goes into drive or park.
