Lightbulb actuators closed

ok, my buddys car is a s4 6port n/a and he just put a dual super trap exhaust on and rb header and he disabled the 6 port acutators. instead of just wiring them open he closes them for daily driving and opens them for ripping around. BUT when he closes them his car seems to be faster then when they are open. what is going on. is he getting more torque by keeping them closed? just curious.

With them closed he getting low End torque upto 3500 rpm at which time they are supposed to open creating more horsepower. If as a daily driver you never see rpm's above 5000 rpm then you won't miss anything. If you do some research thru this website you will find talk on how to create a way to control the actuators so they still work without been connected to the exhaust.

thanks, but im not interested in anything like that, personally i have my sleeves taken out. i was just wondering if he was getting more torque throughout the rpm range leaving them closed.
