My 360 stock exhaust silencer is cracking in the centre so it needs replacing. This also gives me a chance to look at other makes but the task is quite overwhelming with so much to choose from - capristo, tubi, kreiss, larini, xost, timate, novitec, fabspeed, and it goes on forever! It is also quite difficult to ascertain their differences from youtube links, quite far from the real experience.
I am looking for the best of both worlds - (i) a system that can be as quiet as stock when I am pulling into a hotel drive way or coming home late without waking the neighbours; and (ii) letting the horse scream F1 on a highway. From all the reviews and clips, it looks like the Capristo Twin Sound with wireless remote fits the bill squarely.
I am wondering if anyone has a personal experience to share, and in particular I have the following questions:
(1) when the valves are closed, is it as quiet as stock? (some reviews claim that it is actually quieter than stock but i find it hard to believe).
(2) with the closed valve function, does the system know how to automatically open up to prevent overheating and other damages?
(3) with the open valve function, does it create any inadvertent problems? I had thought the stock exhaust opens and closes to regulate and balance the system, so is doing it manually advisable?
(4) last but not least, is the wireless remote system sturdy enough to withstand the heat from the engine compartment? I mean do the wires and sensor melt at some point and a regular refitting is required?
Many thanks for your thoughts
