Also when do you close the valves? Under what circumsance? I can't see when someone would close them. Either you want a loud exhaust and you drive your car or you don't. Not sure I wake up some days and want it loud and others not
I'm not so sure the goal of closed valves is stock, rather closed =sport and open= race. Most of the time the exhaust is likely preferred to be open but there are times when you are with business clients or when you might respect your neighborhood at late or early hours. If this isn't you then don't buy it. That's why they make more than 31 flavors.
