2014 EcoMode

Does anyone know if the 2014 has the Active Exhaust Valves featured in the 2012-13?

One would think that the EcoMode would function much better with the new 8-speed, and wouldnt need them. I would also venture to guess that cat-back exhaust options would open up dramatically as well...

Re: 2014 EcoMode

It's unlikely the 8 speed has any real effect on the horrid sound and loss of torque you get with MDS so it's a pretty safe bet the 2014 will have the same exhaust valves.

Re: 2014 EcoMode

I asked the powers that be today and didnt get an answer yet. I know ecomode is selectable now via a button. Hopefully theyve lost the exhaust valves. Im gonna lose them on my 13' as soon as tuning is released.

Re: 2014 EcoMode

So the MPG loss experienced when people took them out was from the EcoMode malfunctioning and using more fuel?
