Mild2Wild installed today

I was tired of going in the trunk to pull and put back the F8 fuse. I like the car louder but sometimes I just want her quieter. Mostly for highway driving and for when my wife and kids are with me. The online instructions were very helpful. I programmed the homelink buttons also so the convenience factor is pretty cool. It is nice to have the choice. Should have been a factory option I think. For the cost of a tank of fuel I now can choose what I want. It works as advertised and I'm glad to have installed it. You either have the choice of factory set up or complete wide open. What a great product.The name is bang on!

I installed it, but I always leave it open because it sounds so good.

Same here! I think I tried out the remote once on the hiway just to hear the difference, but otherwise I leave them open all the time! Gotta love that sound!

wait till you guys go much more heavily modded.
youll want the switch and the difference becomes much more.

with the NF Cam, and LTs and Cats the car is LOUD as a stock car with it in open.
with it in closed it comes much more managable and less obnoxious.

Stock I agree left mine open 100%. but now that I'm heavily modded the M2W is a godsend.

I put mine in and very rarely is it closed. Once in awhile i'll close it on the highway to quiet it down then very quickly open them back up because I miss the growl!

The Mild2Wild switch is actually a device that is esentially a fuse with a remote to open and close the exhaust valves.

You can find more info HERE, or feel free to call, PM or email me with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

It's a must have with LT's. You 'll want the baffles closed after a few hrs on the highway.

Exactly how I feel, the noweeds exhaust diverter is in my future. So if i did have the switch it would be Wild to Mild to Tame lol. Ill never buy the switch though but am glad the op was happy with his purchase.

I love my M2W even more now with the Mods....sometimes it's just a little TOO much when cruising on the highway with it open

I just pulled the fuse and it's been in the glove compartment ever since. The exhaust note is music to my ears! And it's still relatively quiet at highway speeds compared to my Hemi Ram w/ Flowmaster cat-back duals and K/N CAI...

I definitely recommend the Noweeds Exhaust Diverters. I did the M2W switch first, but coulda saved my money since I always leave them wide open. The Noweeds I have to admit I only drive with them wide open occasionally. I use mostly the pre-set button, I set mine at about 10 to 20% open. Wide open is crazy loud especially foot down to red line on the hiway.
