    I did this to my old man's 3.2 at the weekend using a line clamp.

    The effect is very subtle isn't it?

    Good though.

    Look under the rear of the car and you will see an actuator attached to the rear tailpipes. Moving the lever will alter the position of a flap on the left hand pipe.

    From this will come a rubber tube. Clamp it or remove it and block each end to stop dirt ingression.

    Done.

    Neither. It's full of red hot molten plasma that has been brewed by an ingolstadt monkey in the small hours of the morning... Watch your hands.






    (air - or rather an absense thereof - the acutator works on vacuum)
