My buddy had one on his old WRX. It worked once, each of the 3 times he sent it back to be replaced. He ended up bolting a plate over it to close it off.

Everyone that I have known that ran one of those had issues but then again we see alot of salt up here. You may want to consider just an old school plate cut out.

I had one in my mustang, it was loud as ****, and made it easy to run open headers when I wanted to. Mine was a BBK setup though.

i friend has one on his srt4, it's pretty cool, it's got a toggle switch for when you wan to be loud. run a 3" downpipe with this on it and leave the rest of the exhaust stock for stealthness.

if you wanted to make it even more complicated than it needs to be...you could always run it into MS on an RPM switch..that way it'd automatically open at a certain RPM..then close when you drop back down

If you've got a 1994-1997 1.8 from what I understand about the wiring diagram, it has a WOT switch inside it..
