      Any experience to install active actuator on exhaust

      As we all know, T6 & T8 has active actuator on exhaust. Does anyone know if there is possible to install it for T5?

      I wouldn’t try. Exhaust plays an important role in power delivery, and opening it up without compensating in the ECU is not advised.

      Has nothing to do with "power delivery" and everything to do with a missing wiring harness and inability to download software to control the valve.

      The exhaust system definitely affects engine power output and smoothness/drive-ability.

      It boggles my mind the number of people who think manufacturers waste millions of dollars in research and development and don't understand that these systems are highly integrated and dependent upon each other. You're $20 "mods" don't help -- they hurt.

      I don't think it's standard on all T6 and T8 models
