A state of the art design and a perfect fit for your Ferrari 348. This system will enhance the 8 cylinder sound and you will experience an increase in horsepower and sound through a more efficient flow of the exhaust system. The exhaust system comes with mounting hardware to install directly into the vehicle’s existing mounting points and is a Capristo valved exhaust.
The system features a programmable control unit also referred to as CAPRISTO Exhaust Control Box (Programmable Remote Control). The box is programmable via a remote control to fit the vehicle’s or the customer’s needs. It monitors the back pressure of the exhaust gases and makes sure the best possible performance is delivered.
The exhaust valves are back pressure-controlled and user programmable. A built in limit prevents reaching dangerous pressure levels. There is a control unit for monitoring the back pressure. This control unit provides the ability to individually program the back pressure one would like to have the valves open or close. The portion of back pressure resulting in a loss of performance is filtered out. This way, one can reach the maximum performance. Therefore, this sports exhaust combines all advantages in both the lower and higher range of revolutions (rpm), since the back pressure can be exactly controlled to enable the engine to gain the maximum performance. The programmable control unit features an illuminated display showing all functions in plain text in 3 different languages (German, English and Italian) and provides 3 basic modes to be operated via a remote control, namely:
Cruise mode – the exhaust gas valves open later
Sports mode – the exhaust gas valves open earlier
Open mode – the exhaust gas valves remain open
In both the cruise mode and sport mode, one can individually program when the exhaust gas valves shall open. One big advantage is that the control unit recognizes the driver’s operation characteristics. If the driver accelerates aggressively, this is identified by our device by the kind of back pressure that is generated, and the exhaust gas valves open immediately. Usual acceleration results in a later opening of the exhaust gas valves.
Lighter with better heat dissipation, this exhaust offers better performances (better torque and throttle response).
