Start in Sport Mode ?

I donít think itís possible but I want to see if anyone knows for sure. Is there any way to set the mode that the Bullitt starts in?

Someone suggested setting up My Mode but thatís just another mode that you can toggle to after youíve started the vehicle as far as I can tell.

There is no user selectable way to do that.

I was wondering the same thing, so I set up a "My Mode" to see if the car would "remember". It doesn't. It reverts back to normal. So there is no way to start the car with Sport or Track Exhaust modes active. An engineer friend told me that the engine computer does adjust when flipping through the different exhaust modes.... so my assumption that the start-up code from the computer requires the exhaust to be in "normal mode".

You can not do what you are asking.

I read somewhere on another forum that if you put the car in Accessory mode before actually starting it, you can select a drive mode using the toggle switch and start the car in Sport, Track, etc.

I have confirmed that this does in fact work however it doesn't appear to affect the sound at startup. If you rev right after starting you can tell that you are in Sport or Track for sure but the actual cold start sounds the same. I am disappointed by this actually because my '14 GT/CS was louder on cold start than the '19 Bullitt and my '06 GT with FRPP (Borla Stinger) axle backs was even louder on startup.

I remember my wife calling me on her way home from work one day telling me that she set off car alarms with the '06 GT in her parking garage. I miss the loud cold starts!

Having said all that, this workaround has no benefit if the actual startup isn't any louder. There's effectively no difference between toggling to Sport/Track before actual startup or after if I have to actually toggle each time.
