Its tight but no need for a lift.

I'm not a handy guy at all lol and scared to tinker with the car but I just got quoted 225 at a tuner shop who told me they'd drop the muffler and it'd take an hour and a half

Am I going to get the same answer everywhere or is he taking advantage of me because I said I'm not handy lol

Not going to blast the shop so I'm not going to mention names


Also i got the default set to factory and on set to open

This means that when I get into the car, the car will work as intended (change setting with I drive) and then when I activate it, the valve opens regardless of Idrive. Correct?

I'm not handy and it took me 10 min. No lift. No dropping exhaust.

I am very confused by your post???

So, it seems you have a local shop that will drop your muffler for $225 . . . I interpret that as you are looking to get a muffler delete and they will do that for $225 (in 1.5h).

Is that correct?

If so, I do not have much to offer, as I am not sure what goes into a muffler delete . . . but it does seem EXTREMELY inexpensive for the project at hand.

This thread is about the VSC-2 and you seem to mention valve control in the second part of your post, but I am not sure what you are asking, or how it pertains to the first part of your post about the muffler???

No I'm doing nothing but installing the VSC…that's why what they said to me made absolutely no sense

I asked if they'd install it for me, sent him the link and instructions. He told me they'd drop the muffler to install it and I said what? And he said it'll take 2 hours.

I assume they'd drop the muffler, go on lunch break, put the muffler back on and then install the VSC then charge me 225

Yes, for those who have not opened valves it is a subtle, yet, apparent difference. As stated previously, it does not offer increased decibels, just constant access to maximal decibels . . . which equates to perception of increased decibels.

I actually think the stock G80C acoustics are fantastic, both what emanates from under the hood and out the exhaust pipes. Not chasing louder BUT, if I were . . . I suspect the mid-pipe with VSC-2 would provide just about the perfect retention of stock tone with a bit more decibels.

The only exhaust mod I have not heard and I am interested to hear is the muffler delete, e.g., AWE Track exhaust if/when it is ever released.

///AVM
I have the Valvetronic midpipe and I bought the controller too but my guy said not to bother fitting it. It won't make a difference. Maybe it would have the valves fully open as opposed to partially open but I drive around in sport plus and it seems like the valves are pretty much open. Definitely a lot more burbles anyway now with the mid pipe.

Do you think the controller would add much more on top of the existing stock valve control?

Gotcha . . . well, the VSC-2 is a 10-15 minute install.

Requires no special tools, expertise or insight, other than what others have shared in this thread . . . you can do it.

I am not sure the valves are ever fully opened in the stock set-up . . . never been able to identify fully opened valve when unplugging actuator at full throttle. Further, the valves are only transiently open with stock set-up, even at full throttle. vetteflier, myself and others have confirmed.

As we have stated many times, valve mod does not offer increased decibels. It offers MAXIMAL decibels ALL the time. This will be PERCEIVED as increased decibels because you are going from intermittently to constantly being exposed to maximal decibels.

The valve mod (whether vetteflier method or VSC-2) is absolutely noticeable over stock and most appreciated with low-to-moderate throttle. When you get into the higher throttle range the mod becomes less appreciable over stock set-up. . . remains noticeable nonetheless.

So, to answer your question, the valve mod absolutely adds to the stock set-up. Nothing profound, but absolutely real/perceptible. You have little-to-nothing to lose by trying it yourself.

I predict that with your mid-pipe mod the valve mod will be EVEN MORE noticeable than with stock system . . . call it an educated hunch.

In terms of the mid-pipe and burbles . . . I had MPE placed on my F87C and thought is was good. What I did NOT like about MPE and most aftermarket exhaust mods is that they tend to accentuate the burps and burbles more than anything else . . . I am not a fan of the obnoxious burps and burbles.

Overall, I think the stock G80/82 exhaust tone is fabulous. The decibels are good and made just a little better by valve mod.

Vsc 2 installed

Did this mod today. Probably took 30 mins.
Likely because of tight space under car without ramps. But after spending a few mins figuring out what I needed to do, the rest was easy. Thanks to everyone for the tips. Didn't remove heat shield - used a wire hanger. Overall, definitely doable by anyone even without a lift or ramps. I didn't want to go after market exhaust because I was afraid it would be too loud for my liking. This mod is perfect for What I was looking for.

Forgot to mention, I did that as well. It's a great feature to have the control available right there, but I doubt I will ever turn it off.

I think so. I think the directions were actually not for the g80 but for some other bmw model so I am assuming they use the same connectors/parts for the actuator

ashiifi - ordering VSC-2

ashiifi,

I'm in WI (Madison), 2022 M3 Comp. I'm getting a active autowerks exhaust put on this spring. Wil the VSC-2 still work? Aso, the website doesn't say it will work with our G80's but judging by these posts it still does.

Which option should I select from:

Wiring Configurat​ion
Standard wiring (all M3 & M4, all X5M & X6M, M2 comp)
or
Modified wiring for dual valve exhaust on single valve wired cars (+$118.00)
