AM doesnt supply one in the fuse panel cover or tool kit?? Odd. My Porsches have all had them and BMWs.

Is there proof of this?? I mean it only takes a couple seconds at best to reach 4000rpm at which point the valve opens and if you are not getting on it then loss of "low end torque" means nothing.....

I don't know the answer to your question, but I will say that the time that it takes the engine to reach 4,000 is a bit on the long side so there is not much room for loss of torque. Also, mere seconds count. The difference between a car that goes from 0-60 in 4 seconds and one that goes from 0-60 in 5 seconds is huge.

Try it both ways and you will see. I didn't dyno it, but it's a difference you can feel. When I got my car, it came without fuse 22 in place...I drove it like that for over a year before I tried putting it back in to see the difference. I noticed the increased low-end torque right away so I left it that way.

Once you do it, you will then be buying an aftermarket exhaust.

lol. I'll try it tomorrow for the weekend. Dropping my sister off at the airport tonight, don't want her to miss her flight because of my clumsy fingers.

Does anyone have a picture of which fuse it is? My friends 2011 Aston Martin DBS Volante doesn't supply a map to which fuse is which. Thanks in advance!

i really love the fact that the note is really subtle until you hammer it. and to find theres a potential performance loss? might keep mine in
