PLYMOUTH TOWNSHIP, MICH. (PRWEB) July 09, 2015 -- ROUSH Performance, the first specialty vehicle company to combine race-proven technologies with advanced automotive engineering, has designed and manufactured a customizable variable exhaust control for infinite sound possibilities.
“Active Exhaust is the first and only aftermarket variable exhaust control that lets 2015 ROUSH Mustang drivers calibrate their vehicle’s sound themselves — directly from an Apple device,” said Gary Jurick, president of ROUSH Performance.
Active Exhaust is available for 2015 Mustangs outfitted with ROUSH Quad Tip exhaust including all ROUSH Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Mustangs.
This powerful “smart system” reads running conditions over the vehicle’s onboard diagnostic data bus and makes adjustments on valve opening and closing positions depending upon the mode selected. Active Exhaust comes with three pre-loaded exhaust modes and one custom exhaust mode:
• TOURING routes all exhaust gases through the mufflers, keeping output decibels at their absolute minimum.
• SPORT provides more exhaust noise at low accelerator openings and low vehicle speeds, and then closes the valves during normal city driving. This setting is more aggressive than Touring, yet still street legal.
• TRACK keeps the internal muffler bypass fully open at all times when the engine is running for a free-flowing, unrestricted tone. Designed for the track, this mode is not street legal.
• CUSTOM allows unlimited tuning of unique exhaust sounds with volume and tone alterations based on accelerator position and vehicle speed.
“Drivers can select between the neighborhood-friendly touring option for quiet morning startups and switch to sport to open up when the driving becomes more spirited,” said Jurick. “Other systems lack smart controls or suffer from premature valve failure. Our original equipment-grade valve offers a system far superior to simple electronic cutouts.”
The Active Exhaust is controlled by the market’s first patent pending Apple iOS application that allows drivers to calibrate the exact tune and volume of their exhaust — based on speed and accelerator position. Drivers can view 3D graphical renderings of calibration on their iPhone or iPad and save multiple settings on their device.
