I removed it when installing my oil catch can, the difference is very noticable, the quiet setting with my active exhaust before removing, sounds like the normal setting after removing the tube.

I removed mine along with the engine cover. Neither of which will be going back on.

The quiet setting now sounds like the normal mode ?

Yeah that's confusing me as well. Wouldn't it be quieter than before, if anything?

The valve is intriguing, I don't really want to rip stuff out of the car so if that works just as well while keeping it pretty OEM looking I'm game.

Do you mean what you wrote because it says that they will both be going back on?;)
Got carried away. Dooh!! Corrected now. They will not be going back on.

I get it. You have to read the post again. "Normal" mode now is as quiet as "Quiet" mode used to be.

Just curious. Do people who spend money to make their exhaust systems louder also remove the sound tube which brings intake sound into the car?

I can understand removing it if you need better access but I have trouble understanding why so many guys don't like a tube which brings intake noise to the interior.

Old guy who likes to hear intake noise as well as exhaust noise.
My last car (2016 SHO) made just shy of 400hp to the tires through the stock exhaust and I replaced it's sound tube/intake with one from a Ford Flex that didn't have the sound tube. It made a lot of obnoxiously loud '15-17 5.0's look bad getting beat by a stock looking/sounding 4400lbs 4-door. In a video of a 70-166mph run I did, it was quiet enough on the inside you could hear my breathing.

My 2018 GT will get it removed when the Whipple goes on and I spec'd the active exhaust solely to have quiet mode. I want my vehicles quiet 99% of the time.

My car had 16 miles on it when the Sound Tube was removed. I found the best way to get to it was from underneath the car. 1/4 inch ratchet, 14 inch long extension, 1/4 inch universal, and 10mm socket.

On the 5.0 It's a hell of a lot better than hanging over the fender and tearing up your hand trying to get to it.

guys, please read carefully, the quiet before removing, sounds like normal after, i.e. it's much quieter now.

If the sound tube were chrome and popped up through the hood like intake trumpets it would be much more popular.
