This valve open's and close's with a push/pull switch you wire to your cabin. Basically how the brakes work on a bike. Jeff has a video but I will be making another this weekend, including drive-by's and different levels of the valve. Also, like Jeff said you one need one between your y and mid pipe's. I do not have the true dual setup that the full Meisterschaft CBE system comes with. I have a M2 y pipe with a custom straight through mid pipe. Hope this helps for now fellas.

That is unique Vick. I like the idea and look forward to hearing it. Sweet deal knowing Jeff.

How much exhaust gas is even getting through it when its fully closed? Almost nothing im assuming. Isnt that just gonna cause problems sooner or later? Its a cool idea though for people who have this with HFC's like I do

What the video doesn't show is the different settings, it's spring loaded and clicks so you can go from fully closed to fully open or stop at a few points in between so:

0% (fully closed)
30% (first click)
50% (second click)
80% (third click
100% (fully released)

These are rough numbers just to help you visualize it. Each click the sound gets progressively louder and power/flow are barely affected at all but the fully closed position. You won't be driving around at fully closed very often unless you're just cruising slow around town/neighborhood and need to be super stealth. I recommend opening it at least one click for any higher speed driving which is still significantly quieter than fully open.

Also, what mm size would I need for a 2.5 inch pipe? The end of my y-pipe is 2.5 and the inlet of the mid pipe is 2.5 as well

The cable is just long enough to be ran through the rubber grommets in the floor behind the rear strut bar/driver seat. You'll see it when you remove the carpeting and foam.

They also offer a longer 3.5M cabel if you want to run it further forward to the front of the cabin:

N1 Universal Turbo Universal Muffler APEX Integration

You would run the 61mm, this one:

ECV, Flange-Type Exhaust Control Valve APEX Integration

Random question. Can you adjust this valve without running the cable into the cabin??
