N mode should do it, unless the ecu thinks it a bad idea (not sure what conditions that might be, perhaps excessive temps?)
If in Custom make sure the "engine" setting is also sport+
This is really interesting. It may just be a difference in the 2020 model (hopefully not). I've driven my 2019 VN PP hard in 95+ degrees and it still cracks and pops very loud at redline. Even when I'm in sports mode or normal mode when the car is warm it overruns and gurgles and crackles at low speeds in 1st gear. The only time you don't hear cracks and pops are as soon as the car starts up. After driving for 2 minutes or so the ECU allows the explosions in the exhaust manifold. One of my favorite things to do is let the clutch in and bring the revs up in tunnels. Maybe this is a problem with the ECU. Have you asked dealer about it yet?I don't want to steal this post from Vetgamer, but yes, my engine is up to operating temperature, and still no pops. Other folks are mentioning possibly temperature may have something to do with it, as in ambient temperature. I live in central Florida, and so it's been almost consistently over 90 everyday. I don't know if that would have anything to do with retarding the timing on the car or not. If anything, I would think higher ambient temperatures would cause the ecu to retard timing even further to prevent pre-ignition. I always run higher octane fuel anyhow.
Have you checked to see if exhaust valve is open when in N mode? Just shine a bright light down the right tailpipe to see if the actuator is functioning for the valve. The service manual also has this to add (lol):Today I'm in my veloster n, in the N mode and it sounds as if it's in normal mode? I've had the vehicle for over 2 months and never had this happen. Has anyone ever had this issue ?
I sure appreciate the feed-back, and I will do this "right tailpipe stick/flashlight thing". Thank you.Have you checked to see if exhaust valve is open when in N mode? Just shine a bright light down the right tailpipe to see if the actuator is functioning for the valve. The service manual also has this to add (lol):
• Visually check the valve movement.
Check how the valve moves when pushing the valve inside the tail pipe using a stick.
Replace the rear muffler assembly if the vale does not move.
• Check the valve operation.
Check the valve initialization when starting the engine : check the valve operation sound (click).
Exchange the valve actuator or wiring if the valve does not operate (check the exchange of valve actuator first).
No Problem!I sure appreciate the feed-back, and I will do this "right tailpipe stick/flashlight thing". Thank you.
