    From an enthusiast perspective, the exhaust sound is much better without the audio system "enhancement".

    Is the fake engine noise an 802A with the premium stereo only thing?
    I couldn't hear the fake noise on my 800A or 801A, but neither had the premium stereo.

    Hamster - can you provide more detail on your observations of turning in off, then back on (on your 2020), and why you decided to leave it on. Did turning it off quiet the cab a lot?

    On 2017 had FP Touring and going to 2020 with it turned off was probably too much change all at once. :)

    I kinda like the noise cancellation with it on and the fake engine noise when I get on it sounds ok to me. If I want to hear a real V8 then I take the GT350 for a spin.

    It really is a personal choice based on your hearing and preferences. With Forscan so easy to flip it on and off until figure out what u like.

    @The Car Stereo Company ... where are the wires you would cut to eliminate the fake engine noise for those of us without Forscan? Easily accessible?

    Isn't there some other things u want to adjust like folding mirrors on lock that are easy with Forscan....I would cut wires only as a last resort. I just sold my 2017 and was able to return everything to OEM including the fake noise with Forscan.

    Quick disconnects are just as easy and would return it to stock. But I get your point with Forscan
