    Nope, in the older cars itís a valve in the engine bay. I posted a picture of the early VF valve somewhere so Iíll try to dig that up. But in VE itís around the rear of the engine under the cover

    Hereís the early VF valve, in the reversed position meaning the flaps are permanently open. Hope this helps

    Or you can wire in a switch. There is a wire behind the glove box you can tap and switch it on and from. There is a thread on here somewhere

    hey mate thanks for reply how does this manual value work if you can turn it on and off with edi function there must be something that opens and closes somewhere in system thats controlled electrically or you'd have no way of changing the settings to the valves at at all

    Found this, it's the walk through I followed. I had a pic of my install up but since Photobucket changed all my pics are gone.

    Hi Guys, Thought it was about time I came back and let you all know how to modify the EDI to allow the Bi-Modal to remain open whenever you like without having to disconnect the vacuumed lines and losing the EDI functionality to adjust the Bi-Modal.

    It's actuall really simple and you only need a 12 volt switch and 1-2 meters of wire depending where you want the switch.

    I've thought about keeping this information to myself but as you all have been helpfully to me and other member of this forum here goes....

    Step 1. Remove the glovebox - There are 2 screws below the glovebox facing up and 5 screws in the glovebox, 3 facing up and 2 hidden behind the plastic caps either side of the glovebox. The drivers side cover goes around the boot release button.

    Step 2. Make sure you key is out of the ignition and the radio is off. Or you might be heading into Holden to get the EDI reset.

    Step 3. Look up (and smile) and you will see a small black box conveniently labeled 'HSV Motec EDI' discconnect the main (the large one) wireing harnes and cut the tape away exposing the wireing.

    Step 4. Locate the thin orange wire ( the thick orange wire is the main 12v supply) and cut it in half.

    Step 5. Connect your switch (using the 1-2meter wire as above) to the orange wires. One end of the orange wire goes to one side of the switch and, well you guest it... Connect the other end of the orange wire to the other side of the switch.

    Step 6. Mount your switch (some people may want to swap step 5 and 6 around) somewhere handy. I mounted mine behind the stero fascia directly above where the ashtray woul go. This offers easy access but also hids the switch so no one knows about it

    Step 7. Reconnect the EDI wireing harness and install the glovebox.

    Step 8. Enjoy.....
