Exhaust flaps open in N-Mode at 5500 rpm, in D-Mode at 3500-4000 rpm and on Race-Mode they are always open.

The exhaust controller has two options: a) serial mode (see above) and b) flaps always open regardless of DNA-Mode selected.

Steve is great to work with.

We are an authorized installer for Forza and carry the controller in stock. If anyone needs installation in the Austin, TX or LA, CA Areas we have it in stock and are glad to help.

Is it correct that this controller and any others of this type will not work on the Ti?

They cannot work, because all other Giulia models have no exhaust flaps!

Should we start a pool for when you get your first drive-by violation warning or ticket?

And if that ever comes to pass (which I truly hope it doesn't) may you be treated with the same respect and compassion that I was by the Long Beach Police Department.

The shop charged me $150. I also had them install the front license plate bracket for me on the passenger side tow hook. That was probably 15 minutes. Say $120 then. Worth every cent though.

I will avoid Long Beach going forward. One word for the controller AWESOMENESS!!

My Q sounds phenomenal in Normal and Dynamic now. See thumbnail below for the remote. Turn engine on, normal Q operation. Press "button B" and it sounds exactly like it's in Race mode. Press "button A", back to normal Q operation. Turn off engine, back to normal Q operation. The best aftermarket investment I can think of for pure aural pleasure.

That's awesome it works how you want. Enjoy and keep us posted after a few hundred miles.

No, truly, they were great. An officer witnessed a drunk driver slam into the back of my brand new SAAB 9000. He was at my car making sure I was OK before I could shut off the engine. He had paramedics check me out on-the-spot and got word to my grandfather (whom I was on my way to visit) that I would be a bit late (those were the days before cell phones became rampant). He also had a department mechanic look over my car to make sure I could drive it safely. Both I and the drunk pickup driver had out-of-state plates, causing the officer to joke about all the extra paperwork. Finally, he asked me to call him when I got home (to Virginia) so he knew I was OK. A class act. I hope there are many more like him. If you want a place to avoid, Royal Oak, Michigan would be a good start.

Glad you like your controller (major understatement). Will you ever use your car's audio system again?
