That's one classy lookin' ride!!
I think the full width rear spoiler is a nice touch on that car.
What is the function of "NPP Dual Mode Exhaust?"

Kevin - dual mode explanation :
 

Exhaust Tail Pipe Flow Control System Description and Operation

The Exhaust Flow Control (EFC) System enhances engine performance. The system has 2 modes of operation:

Normal
Competition

Normal Mode

When the vehicle is stationary with the engine running the exhaust flow control module (EFCM) commands the vacuum solenoid On, which supplies engine vacuum to both exhaust flow control valves. This causes the valves to close, diverting exhaust flow through a baffled path inside the mufflers. As vehicle speed increases, throttle position reaches 25 percent or greater and engine speed reaches 3500 RPM, the EFCM commands the vacuum solenoid off. This causes the valves to open, diverting exhaust flow through an un-baffled path inside the mufflers, thus enhancing engine performance.

Competition Mode

When traction control is driver disabled, vehicle speed increases, throttle position reaches 25 percent or greater and engine speed reaches 3000 RPM, the EFCM commands the vacuum solenoid off. This causes the valves to open; diverting exhaust flow through an un-baffled path inside the mufflers more frequently and at lower engine speeds.

The system also delays exhaust valve activity during wide-open throttle acceleration to inhibit exhaust valve actuation when the accelerator pedal is released and reapplied while shifting gears.

The EFCM has the ability to detect electrical malfunctions within the system. Any electrical malfunction detected will cause the system to be disabled and increased exhaust audibility.

The system uses the engine control module (ECM), body control module (BCM), electronic brake control module (EBCM), EFCM, exhaust flow control valve vacuum solenoid, vacuum reservoir, vacuum lines, 2 exhaust flow control valves and the serial data circuit to perform the system functions.

I don't dare show this thread to Patty.  She flipped head over heels for a Cyber Gray Z06 that was sitting on the dealer's lot where we met up with the '09 Minnesota Caravan.  The only way we would have been able to drive away with it was if they would have done an even-up trade for "The Beast".  Good thing there weren't any salesmen around at the time...!!!
 
Congrats on the new ride Clint...!!!  Clap  Thumbs Up  Clap  Thumbs Up  Clap  Thumbs Up  Clap
