Unplug small 2 pin connector/harness that goes through the floor.



Push harness and grommet through the floor exposing it on the other side.


Unplug 2 pin connector at flapper solenoid (above passenger side muffler behind tire)by squeezing hard on metal wires on each side and pulling abruptly. See pic



Install new harness in reverse order.

Once you have the new harness installed with grommet properly secured in place and connectors properly plugged in you can now install the ADM CONTROLLER

How does the controller work, a wireless key chain controller, through the homelink buttons ? How does it differ from the "Mild to Wild" switch?

"closed" or "stock" operation for this ADM unit which is unlike anything on the market. Mild to wild can only go to "open" or "stock"

No kidding. I swear it's louder with headers on start up compared my old 98 TA which had a stroker motor with a big cam and high compression.

I should have mine tomorrow so I will make sure to report back. This kit should sell pretty well as more owners with dual mode exhaust modify their cars. IMO this is the hot exhaust set up for these cars. Best of both worlds.

Unfortunately no.

It's open all the time at idle anyway from the factory.

I'm still not sure why you would want it open all the time anyway?

Please explain?

just received mine from UPS...haven't had a chance to install yet. It looks great. Top notch as usual and very well made. Looks to be true "plug & play" as advertised. Going to the track tonight. Will install this weekend.

Just finished install - no issues with install. Having an issue though - when the remote is pressed, the valves close as intended. However, after about 5 - 10 seconds they re-open on their own. After waiting about 20 seconds after this occurs, I am able to press the remote and close the valves again, but they pop open again after the 5 - 10 seconds. Talked to ADM and they are looking into the issue. Anyone else experience same?

PS - I found it easier to re-attach the harness to the solenoid (right above muffler) by removing the one bolt that holds the plastic shroud around the solenoid. Once removed, you can rotate the solenoid towards the ground and clip the harness in much easier.

What do you mean you don't understand why we want it open all the time?

Factory is only good for cruising on the highway other than that is 100% worthless.

Closed would be great for creeping around or date night when you just want minimal noise.

and OPEN for the rest of the time.

my M2W only goes into quiet for road trips the rest of the time it is worthless in factory mode now that the car is heavily modded.

We will be looking into this more after the fathersday weekend.Drews situation is a bit confusing as we teted each one on the bench prior to shipping.

Either way we will be on top of this with answeres monday.

Thanks
Andy

PS I WILL BE AVAILABLE VIA PHONE OVER THE WEEKEND IF ANYBODY HAS QUESTIONS,IF YOU GET VOICEMAIL PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE AND I WILL RETURN YOUR CALL
