GrimmSpeed Exhaust Valve Defeat Module

Bought the product, and totally forgetting GrimmSpeed is based a couple hours away, recieved the plug in module in 2 days via base shipping after ordering over the weekend. I was tired of my 2017 Focus RS throwing a Drive Mode not Available code just because I have a Borla Atak kit, so buying this and simply plugging it in, and tucking it away was a perfect fire and forget tactic. A total brain dead idiot like myself had it installed in less than 2 minutes, and the results are loud and fun to drive again. Thanks GrimmSpeed for having a product like this available and in stock, I would definitely recommend to any of my fellow Focus drivers to pick this up, even if you're running stock exhaust.
