Why would you want to?

I assume it's there for a reason.

Yes why would you? It's there to warm the CATS up faster.

Yeah, I cannot see why you would want this removed. Plus it sounds great.

I like that gurggling, throaty, good morning rumble in the AM. Gives me wood!

Evolve can do it or you. I had mine removed when they remapped the car. Would have been way too loud with the Akra

Was parallel parked on the street and I set off the alarm on the car behind me.

Evolve Tune is just soooo expensive just to remove the cold start (I know you get more more more than just cold start removal.... but thats the bit I am REALLY interested in...)

£700 just so I can have no cold start is a bit steep!

(I may go down this route in the end tho - dont tell the wife! (motto of my life))

That's a real shame. I have Eisenmann Race and the neighbours are very close but they haven't mentioned a problem. It's not That loud. My brother will be up with his Corvette at the weekend. That's really obnoxiously loud!

Have a look at this...

It's something that I'd consider too, as the cold start is really quite loud with a race exhaust. There's also a few other coding options I'd like!

Hey,

I'd like to get the heat up cycle removed as well. Got the modified OEM exhaust and cold start in the morning is pissing neighbors off.

Is this something that could be done using NCS expert?
