      If no you guys think it will work? I actually need this for my next exhaust and rather buy something already made and sure to work rather than try and make my own and mess things up lol.

      What I'm worried about is the resistance thing... is the set up easy to do? I'm good but I'm not a big fan of cables and resistors etc ^^

      Information and food for thought:

      ECS replied this to me concerning their switch.

      Hello,

      After talking with my VW parts team they informed me that they looked into making a product like this for the MKV R32 but after research they found that the system on this R32 is more complex and a product like this actually results in the MKV loosing power. So this product was never developed.

      Best,

      Voila. I think this is quite an interesting point. Anyone dyno before and after flapper mods?

      If you have a stock exhaust, just do the flapper mod for $0.10 and go on with life. I don't get why you would need three modes for the exhaust. With the flapper open all the time the sound is fine and does not need muting...

      Now for some of the aftermarket exhausts I can see it - some of those are rediculously loud and need to be toned down at times.

      Thats the thing. I'm ainting towards an exhaust that has an exhaust valve setup and regulations in Switzerland allow me have the exhaust as long as the valve exists and is set up with a valve "regulator button". If I already have it all done and set up with the stock exhaust, when I get my new exhaust I don't have to worry about doing all the flapper cables setup again.

      Hmm so I'm losing power because of the flapper mod?
      What do you guys consider the flapper mod, because some people just say is disconnecting the rubber tube. When I say flapper mod is when having a switch on/off to control the DB levels from the Resonator delete...
