    Hello to all,

    I keep reading references to an electronically controlled exhaust flap for the OE muffler but have yet to see where it is. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It should have a controller that is accessible from a flap in the rear compartment. It's a servo that push/pulls a wire to the muffler below.

    Thanks, I will have to go hunting for it. Sounds like it's fairly common for the wire to snap or actuator to get stuck. Just curious to see if it's there and in what condition. I have to replace my mid pipe so considering changing the rear muffler as well. I had a chuckle when local Subaru said the mid pipe (44200AE022) would be $750.
