I think only `06 Z06's have the Homelink, which should also have a little house symbol at/on one of the button's.

Are the flaps in the exhaust just for sound, or do you get better torque with them in, kinda like the flap in the gsx-r 1000 sport bikes?

I think they are mostly for the exhaust note, but do think they open up the system so that you will get a bit more HP also....

I've been on the fence due to "battery drain" issues. For now I just pull the fuse when I need to but I'd love to be able to control the exhaust by remote.

Should I be worried about any battery drain issues with this accessory?

Cheers

Tom

I have had mine for 1 1/2 years on my 2008 Z.....no battery drain issues. There are two ways of installing the piece and one is specifically designed for eliminating the battery drain problems. Worked for me and it sounds great!

I found the installation instructions with this comment:

If the car is going to be left IDLE for an extended period of time (3-4 weeks) without starting. The control should be set to “OFF” prior to shutting the car down. This will minimize battery drain. In the “OFF” position 4+ months is not an issue or if you use a battery maintainer it’s not an issue. The last 2 pages show an alternate method of installation that has 0 battery drain but will cause the exhaust to always start in the “OFF” or wild setting.

Since my car is a DD and the longest it has sat w/o running has been 10 days I feel comfortable with this installation method.

I'll be ording this later today.

Cheers

Tom

Tom...the instructions show two types of installation and both are extremely simple. As advertised, 5 minute maximum! The method that I used is the one shown for 'no battery drain'...works great with no issues.

Have fun and enjoy!

I just ordered. The $$ I saved by not buying a cat-back exhaust will be used to replace my OEM Comp Gray wheels for the newer chrome Spyder wheels.

Cheers

I ordered mine last week (on sale for $89.99), received it in two days and finally got around to installing it today.

I'm no rocket scientist, and even with a bad back, knees and requiring reading glasses I was in and out in 2 minutes.

What a neat and must have accessory.

He builds the best after market items for the C6. I wish they'd let him back on here. I don't know what the dispute was all about, but we all lost on this one.

Thanks for the kit! This was a great first mod. I put this on 2 minutes after buying my Z, and was great on the 300 mile ride home. I had fun experimenting with it, but now I keep it mostly open except for cruising on the highway.

That is the beauty of it....you choose when you want it open and closed.

Thanks for the post!!!!..

Problem with the Lear is that it has it's own transmitter device in the car, Homelink simply copies the frequency by holding your transmitter up to it to learn your transmitter.
That severely limits what the Lear unit will talk to, Homelink by copying frequency will work with almost anything. That is why only homelink will work with the MTW unit.
