Question Flapper valve...

What's this flapper valve everyones been raving about? LOL how do you remove it (can it be done by DIY or does one have to utilize a shop?) For those who have done the mod, are you feeling any difference in terms of performance?


Thanks in advance!

07 is a lot easier to do than the 08....i remember just disconnecting the vaccum hose and plug it with a screw


it did help with giving a smoother takeoff

You're just gonna loose a little back pressure .. But if you think about it .. You remove it when you replace the exhaust anyway so it doesn't matter

You can go further with the poor man's intake mod
or just replace the entire intake with an A-Tech or HRC replica
