I know that. The article is about being able to rev ICE mustangs. Literally all it will do is rev your car to different levels.

Would anyone like a semi-new shift knob for their twin? I just upgraded to a Raceseng one. Its in perfect condition. MT. It doesn’t weight a lot so shipping should be cheap, its also free.

Don't think you get it. It's not fake sounds, real engine, real noise. Basically a throttle peddle in your pocket so you can start your car, stand behind it and listen to it be Vroom, Vroom.

If it can't play an old bar song that became a national anthem, it's a worthless feature!
