Just disconnect the noise maker control unit. Super easy to get to. It is on the floor behind the center console next to the accelerator pedal. Where the driver side and passenger side carpets meet behind the center console, you can separate the two pieces easily as they are attached with just Velcro. Pull the Velcro apart and you will see the only control unit which is for the noise maker...It's small. Disconnect the connector and that's it.refinerysmells wrote:On the race car diet thought, any idea where the fake noise maker is and how to disable/remove it to save power and weight? Maybe find & disconnect fuse to see if it throws check light.
Here's a stupid question, if you're taking questions. Do you think it's possible to fit 14" wheels for 105/70R14 tires, at least for the fronts? Smaller diameter tires should improve acceleration if they're sticky enough to hold traction. Math shows that should get 0-60 in 6.77 sec vs 7.2 sec with stock 2015.Nashco wrote:The improved wheels and tires really transform the car. With good tires and lighter wheels, the 0-60 times are drastically improved and the car is just all around better to drive, as you'd expect.
