Macht Schnell brings us a module that extends the ability to fully control the valving of the exhaust system at the touch of a button. Specifically designed for vehicles with OEM or aftermarket exhausts that retain the factory EVC control, there are no clumsy key fobs or additional equipment needed - this is a 100% integrated solution and the first of its kind for current BMW models.
BMW's Exhaust Control Valve (EVC) is integrated towards the end pipe of the muffler. The exhaust flap reduces the noise level when the engine’s RPMs are at or close to idle. The approximate noise reduction on a stock exhaust system is 8 decibels.
The Macht Schnell EVC module utilizes the instrument cluster’s turn signal indicators to give a visual confirmation of the mode you are in. Outside turn signals are not affected during operation and will operate normally. Simply press the BC stalk for +2 seconds to change EVC modes. This is a feature that many of us wish came standard from BMW. The Macht EVC module utilizes the instrument turn signal indicators to give a visual confirmation of what particular mode you are in.
