    Has anyone actually ordered JR3Z-5K245-B, the Valve Repair Kit? Can anyone actually tell me what's in it and if it comes with both actuator motors?

    Ordered this GT350 actuators. Will report back when they come in. This will be to retrofit on my ‘15 GT so I’m not worried about plug ‘n play functionality.

    What system are you going to use to open and close? I need to figure something out but I don't want 'quiet or loud' only, I'd like in between too

    Haven’t decided. First order of business is to make sure they physically bolt in place. Personally I’m okay with “on/off.” I will see if I can figure out how they work internally and then decide how I want them wires.

    Okay, so here’s an update:

    Mufflers and Roush rear valance installed. They fit perfectly together.

    ***GT350 ACTUATORS DO NOT FIT THE 18-19 GT MUFFLERS. ***

    Next order of business is to source some actuators. Please excuse the incredibly dirty car and my friend who did the start and rev for me.

    Is anyone aware of a CANBUS controller for the OEM actuators?

    I'd like to be able to open the actuators a certain amount rather than quiet (closed) or loud(open).

    Just bumping this, is it possible to open the valves a specific amount rather than open/closed? Even a dial?

    I have the manual open close and I will tell you that there’s no point opening them half way. For me it’s always full open or full close.

    That's what Ford is doing, and varying the valve opening depending on throttle, RPM, ...
    There are only four wires, two are PWR & GND, the others are not identified as CAN so my guess is one is PWM to the motor, the other is feedback (PWM or voltage ?) to the PCM.

    Anyone have the updated part numbers for each of the mufflers? I can seem to locate the revised part numbers.

    I saw that you successfully installed active exhaust with Forscan. Do you mind sharing what code use used?

    I'm not able to find a working code for this. I believe I have active exhaust, because i have the actuators and wiring already hooked up. i believe the only thing I'm missing is the correct forscan code.

    Thanks

    Greg

    Unfortunately Forscan won't activate the exhausts alone, I'm still trying to find a way of activating within the PCM itself.
