This is the order I did it.....
1. First loosen connectors but leave plugged in (practice this so you can get to quick when car is running)
2. Start car and put in dynamic and push down throttle (On my M4 I had to do this to open flaps...not sure if this step is needed)
3. While car is running I disconnected flaps then shut off car.
4 I placed a small piece of electrical tape over end of connector and put connector back in (so it's sealed but not making contact)
*It seems flaps close if you don't leave car running when disconnecting
thanks for this. may need to do this. was going to look into purchasing an armytrix exhaust but rather save 3k
im a bit confused for step 2. start the car and put in dynamic mode, so the car is in drive, then u step on throttle while the engine is in dynamic? also did you disconnect the valve while someone else stepped on ( so simultaneously disconnect while stepping on throttle ) it or did u just need to step on it once, then you can run to the back and disconnect?
also did you need to get it on jack stands or a ramp? or is it visible by just crawling under?
any videos? from 1-5, 1 being the sound of the stock TT note, 5 being super loud, how would u rate the increase in sound?
thanks again. excited to try this
