      Forcing the exhaust open

      This will raise a few eyebrows..

      Has anyone physically forced their exhaust flaps open (while closed) with a broom handle etc?

      That's an interesting thought. Are you looking to eliminate or isolate a rattle sound (assuming)? Haven't heard of anyone doing that. I ended up commanding the flaps open for a few months by using the trick posted here. It was nice but once the Ferrita downpipe went on, that wasn't really an option anymore. lol

      Curious what others have done.

      I would think that would be a good way to damage the motor?

      Once the Ferrita DP installed what was it like driving the car? Any louder inside daily driving it?
