I'm pretty sure it is for the airbox flapper control, my SP1 had the same plug when I removed the system, except the SP1 is on the right side, correct me if I'm wrong please.

huh? Barometric pressure is being monitored by the RC?

As Mick once said "Why and what for"?

That's the pair valve's connector.
On SP2's it is mounted on the front of the left radiator which, in the photo, is missing from it's moutning bracket.

Thanks Makis for the info. I assume the Pair Valve is a mode that is removed for better performance?

Most folks disconnect this to keep their exhaust from popping during decel.

PAIR stands for what? I get a little popping upon abrupt throttle cut but I actually like to hear that a little
