    I believe this has been discussed before, but I cannot seem to find the thread. I have a 2018 without the active exhaust, but I do have the plugs in the back to add it. I contacted Ford but they said that they would only sell me the exhaust for $2000 (which is way too expensive). However, I found an active exhaust for sale online without the actuators, just the physical exhaust. Of course I could find and add them later, but if I were to buy the exhaust, what is the default no-power mode of the valves? If I remember correctly, it is fully open (track), but I want to verify that.

    No what if you don't have the actuators. What do the valves default to, like if you were to disconnect your exhaust.

    I believe you can turn the valves either fully open or closed without the actuators.
