ZL1 Exhaust Fuse Pull

Exhaust Fuse Pull

In the trunk mounted fuse box, behind the right side wheel well under the trunk wall mat, it's fuse # F8.

It keeps the exhaust flap OPEN ALL THE TIME. So, you have that sweet sound all the time.. It doesn't cause nuisance drone either. And, I think it may allow some of the heat to escape better instead of holding it in! I suggest it us about 10 degrees cooler running on average.

All my opinion, but very gratifying. I put the fuse in a labeled baggie in the glovebox.

Oh.... did I say it gave me a little more torque between 1,000 and 3,000 rpms? NO , I DIDN'T say that Lol. I could tell! It was just awesome.

It stops the noise pollution between 1,000 and 3,000 rpms! And makes the interior ultra quiet. However, the new loudness is very low inside still. It's a nice background noise. Other than noise control, I see no reason for it.

If I recall, when Chevrolet first put it on the vettes, they credited a few additional HP to the dual-mode exhaust. I opted to leave mine in in the Camaro. Its open when it needs to be and closed when I need it to be automatically.

Yes, we have this on our Corvette. The rating according to Chevy goes up 6hp with the dual mode exhaust. A couple places make the fuse replacement that allows you to open and close them with a remote control. I have that and it is really nice. So if you want to sound mean you can and if you want stealth you can.
