x6m exhaust valve

hi guys
just wondering if anyone knows when the valve is spose to open, is it over certain revs, sport mode, etc
just fitted an akra exhaust and doesnt seem very noisey, even with M button activated.
is there anyway to get the valves to cycle while stationary?
thanks
peter

I think to get the sound and "roar" you are looking for you need the catless downpipes. Most of the "roar" is tamed by the cats up front. Different beast with the downpipes. The Akra is a better sound (subjective), but it will never be as aggressive as what you are looking for without the additional mod.
