I have been reading through the posts and specially the DIY section. I will have some questions of my own later today.

Wanted post my observation regarding the "golf tee mod".
I watched the exhaust/muffler flap valve one morning and noticed that as soon as the cold/fast idle drops the valve opens automatically and says open my car and exhaust tone remains constant at low RPMs and has a deep tone.
Could the ECU programing be different for different model years?
I was asking the same thing, if you see my prior post history on the last page or two here. I ended up clamping the hose, and there is still a noticeable change. Give it a shot and see, it takes all of 5 seconds.
