Fuse Pull for Exhaust Bypass Valves

Hello All,

I am in need of some assistance ... ideally from some one in the Phoenix, AZ area who would like to work with me on a device to manually control the exhaust bypass valves.

I have developed a product for Camaro / Corvette that I am pretty certain will function with the Astons to allow the driver to open / close the exhaust valves manually ... overriding the ECU. Many people have already pulled the fuse and likely you have left it out ... which means the exhaust bypass valves are always open.

I am seeking an Aston owner who would like to work with me to receive a complimentary controller device which would allow you open / close the exhaust bypass at will. Open when you want them open ... closed when you want them closed. This is not an unique function and others have construction switches or adapted an existing product for the task. I want to make sure it is specific for the Aston Martin and not an adaptation.

This will be 100% plug and play and 100% reversible. Again no cost to you.

You can post your reply here or send me a PM.

Best regards,

Steve

If I had an AM Vantage or DB, I would do it myself, buy alas, I do not.

If you continue reading through that thread, you will see that many of us are already using the Logisys remote relay available from Amazon for under $20US:

. We have the homelink mirror programmed to switch the valves open or closed. So, what do you have in mind that would improve on this low-income cost solution?

I saw that. As you probably know those of you who are using the Mild 2 Wild device are using the Logisys as well ... but you paid $90 for it instead of less than $20. Mild 2 Wild is merely a reseller of Logisys.

The Logisys device is not a particularly high quality device. The enclosure is very inexpensive and thin consumer grade plastic. The strain relief on the wires is only a small piece of heat shrink tubing. The antenna is an external dangling wire that can be easily broken. This is not the device that Aston Martin would have made.

What I want to do is to improve on the quality and have a complete plug and play device that will allow the use of either a remote transmitter control like the Logyis or a manual On/Off switch control. Combining both in a single device to give the AM owner a choice. My goal is to have it in a package that will not require the AM owner any tools or knowledge of electrical circuits. I realize that most people who read these forums will typically not be intimidated with installing a Logiys device.

Bottom line, I am not asking for any investment. A person who gives me some assistance will receive a high quality device that will enable control of the exhaust bypass valves using either a remote transmitter or a manual on/off switch. There will be no cost involved. Just looking for some help.

Regards,

Steve

Anyone with a bit of electrical chops should be able to install the proper switch in-line with #22 in order to allow fuse on/off control. No..?

I believe it's been done by a few people. Yeah, you can definitely do it - it's just a matter of tapping into that wire and running new wire all the way to the cabin and back. The fusebox for that fuse is at the rear of the trunk, right above the exhaust. So you have to run a wire from the rear of the car, to the cabin, back to the rear of the car.

As telum stated, easy to do, but you have to run two long wires from fuse block to cabin and back. For not a lot of money, you get the convenience of a remote RF transmitter with the Forza exhaust controller.

Steve,
I haven't seen the Forza unit before, and the like you posted goes to a non-item.

Is it similar to the Mild to Wild unit most Vette owners have been using?
Thanks

Hi Batman,

Yes, similar but better quality and provides function to allow either remote transmitter use or can hard wire to a manual switch if prefer.

I fixed the link so now goes to a valid URL.
