Default I like it loud

Is there a way to make the new ZR1 run loud all the time?

Set your exhaust setting to Track Mode.

Run it in track mode all the time. If you own a ZR1 it may have come with an owner's manual. It is very important to read this material. If you do not have a manual you can download one at Chevrolet.com. Good luck.

Pull the fuse for Exhaust Valve #2 in the front fuse box.

RTFM

Is there a way to run the exhaust in track mode while in Sport and Race driving modes, but still have Stealth set to activate when in Comfort?

Your options are to hand pick an exhaust sound mode or tie it to the driving mode. You can always pick Stealth or Track exhaust at will.

This is the easiest way I’ve found if one doesn’t want to be switching driving modes or messing with the infotainment center. You can program the buttons on your visor to open and close the valves anytime you want. The car will start up with the valves open and won’t close unless you choose to.

I’m not sure if this question is asking what I think it is asking but the thread leads me to think that some ZR1 owners are selecting their exhaust sound by changing the “drive mode” from T(our) to S(port) or Tr(ack).. remember that GM recommends specifically AGAINST running in Tr(ack) mode on the street. The suspension is so stiff there is significant risk of bending wheels on expansion cracks or pot holes. Many have done it. I suggest leaving the driving mode in T(our) on the street and change the exhaust note on the center screen (infotainment screen).. when you get to exhaust sound you need to scroll
down to see “track mode”... its hiding just below view when that comes up. Refer to your manual if this is not clear. But dont be changing your exhaust by getting out of touring mode. You are also shutting down much of the cars active handling and traction control “nannies “ that may help keep you in your own lane, besides give you a needlessly harsh ride or worse yet bent wheels. Pardon to all who know this already.

^^^ THIS
Many seem to be confusing the TRACK DRIVING mode on the console with the TRACK EXHAUST Mode setting in the DIC.

PS you can always add an Akrapovic exhaust for real fun ;>

Yup, this x100! I did this on my Z06 and for how I drive the car it was life changing. Most of the time I prefer to keep it wide open, only on the highway when I'm using 6th and especially 7th gear do I like to close the valves. Going 4 screens deep into the infotainment is annoying and not super safe with the tramlining on CT highways. So I use the Mild2Wild with the HomeLink buttons to give a quick and easy way to open or close the valves.

In fact, I just bought a 1ZR ZR1 which does not have HomeLink and my FIRST mod was to order a HomeLink visor from GM Parts Direct for $200. 10% so I can open my garage door without keeping an opener in the car and 90% for Mild2Wild.

Interesting, so the HomeLink visor power wires are already installed on the 1ZR car?

That's what I've read. The visor is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, so fingers crossed!

You may be right about the wheel damage but Tadge specifically denied this statement saying the driving mode and suspension changes for Tour, Sport or Track have no effect on the suspension that would be likely or not to cause wheel damage. Not the first time for contradictions on such matters.

I was wondering why my neighbors garage doors would go up and down when no one was home.

- Right, so that's why I tried to phrase my question carefully. I drive in Sport, and use the **** to switch to Tour when I need an immediate stealth mode (IE: after a WOT run since the car can be heard 3 blocks away by the po-po). Using the touchscreen is far slower and requires me to take my eyes off the road. The **** is the best way to quickly switch. SO: I would like to run Track's exhaust in Sport, while still knowing that it will switch to Stealth when I **** the drive mode to Tour.

I thought stealth mode was when you press the start, stop button when you put the car away and the noise stops, am I wrong??????

Wondering if the sport exhaust and track exhaust mode are the same.
