.... suggestion: If you decide to leave it unclipped for any length of time, while you're assessing how it sounds,... then use some painters tape first to wrap both connections, then cover the painters tape with electrical tape to avoid melting the painters tape. I did that & drove it for several hundred miles before I decided I did not like the drone inside the car at around 60mph. Hence the reason I went with the Carnewal switch.

There's some good close-ups in this thread too - Post # 54. And of course Post # 3 has great pics that show your current exhaust flow if you're interested in how the gases flow.

Then look at this thread, and slide down to Post # 18. I put some pictures in there too (while I was installing the Carnewal switch).

Bump

My local shop did this but it is too loud.
I can't figure out how to restore the clip.
Here is a pic


How is this supposed to look so I can go back to normal?
Thanks!

Your's appears to be still plugged in. Not sure what the electrical tape is on that hose for.

Yours looks like it is plugged in still. He must have undone the vacuum tubes and put a plug in them. Look under your bumper for the little black hose that pugs in to the valve.

I am wondering if he loosened it a bit, then electrical taped it together. I would undo the electrical tape and make sure it is plugged in completely.

The plug that does this is pictured to the lower left and still plugged in...

Your switch is hooked up proper, technician took another approach.
The switch is already hooked up.
