    If the sound enhancement is a synthesized audio track at a preset volume, someone should figure out how to increase the volume output and/or alter the sound file sample. Would be cool. Just don't know where this is stored.

    Links/details, please?

    Can they be programmed to work at a certain rpm or drive mode, or is it a manual switch you have to install and then turn on and off?

    Not sure about making it activate by RPMs. Most I've seen are opened/closed with a switch.

    *Edit* Here's an example from a BMW M3



    Interesting. Thanks for head's-up. I'll be leasing, so this isn't an option for me. Kia is already testing a factory-installed or official upgrade, so I'll wait to see what that's all about. It should be integrated with the rest of the electronics and drive modes on the car.

    While that is a great alternative without breaking the bank. Something to consider is that the OEM exhaust on the Stinger is very restricted, so you will not only be gaining more noise with an aftermarket, you will also be increasing performance as well.

    Correct. KIA Australia already released a factory performance version of the exhaust for the Stinger. Exhaust tone and flow is controlled depending on the driving mode setting you have it on. Sadly that option is not available for the the US market. Not sure if the Canadian market will have it though.

    I can confirm that Canadians don't have the option either.
