    • De-burring
      • blackoctagan posted this fantastic thread showing how he de-burred a stock VVC exhaust system, complete with detailed photos
  • Why does only one exhaust pipe work on my TF?
    • because there is a valve, the EVC ( Exhaust Volume Control ) valve, fitted to the off side pipe. It was fitted to reduce noise at low revs. It was disconnected by many dealers on new TF's as part of the PDI. It can be disconnected in two ways.
      • easy way - find the valve just behind the tail pipe, you will see a pipe coming from it, pull it off, plug the end (I used a self tapping screw), and tie wrap it out of the way. With the pipe disconnected the valve is open.
      • the not so easy way - I'll let Rob Bell explain the procedure here.
  • Exhaust sound clips
