Default Guess the Mod

Just looking through the shots of my new car and have found some sort of strange control added into the passenger side console next to the Electronic Suspension Control. It looks like some type of manual adjuster with a cable heading backwards.

Anyone have any ideas on this one?? All I can think of is some sort of exhaust control.

It's an Industrial control cable for sure.... I'd say exhaust cut out too.

It could have an in cab adjustable sway bar system too.....

It looks like one of those Apexi ECV.

It connects to a butterfly valve in the exhaust system to reduce flow and noise.

thanks for that. Yes it does look like an Apexi ECV. I wonder why they bothered to put of those on it. Seems like a bit of a waste of time to me.

It's hideous whatever it is. Whatever it does I hope it was worth it.
