I'll ask a friend of mine if he is interested. Why do you have an extra? Or did you remove it? Just curious.

I bought a used Capristo system from RichardsCH.

The owner before me installed a switch to open and close the valves.

There is an empty slot on the 16m's left side of the dash. .

Richards kept his remote Capristo on his Scud - so he purchased a new one to complete the system.

How are the panels / heat shields removed to the left and right of the muffler, from underneath?

How much do you want for it? Cheaper way to go then the $1200 Ferrari of Seattle valve switch. Very clean installation though I must say.

Panels and heat shields removed from above. A total of 4 screws each side. Bottom 2 screws hold heat shield and bottom portion of CF panel. Just bend the heat shields up to expose the screws. They are very malleable, it won't damage them.

I see there are two types of remotes available from Capristo: one seems basic and the other more advanced with programmable back pressure adjustments.
Anyone care to comment on the pros/cons of each?

Welcome to FerrariLife teachdocs

The basic version gives you 2 positions, forced open or ECU controlled. The programmable unit measures the real back pressure in the exhaust and depending on the measured values, you can configure it to open the exhaust valves. The sensor that measures the back pressure requires that you make a hole in the exhaust pipe. I think this is more or less a show stopper for most of us

50% of whatever retail price is.

It's brand new - 16M had the interior switch installed by Seattle Ferrari dealer - so the Capristo exhaust switch wasn't necessary.

Ok will keep it in mind once I get caught back up after my 10 day vacation.

It's your fault for not coming over to Ferrari Life sooner.

No I didn't need it ... and it's Doug even though all us Americans look alike

No idea it was 800.00

Also - I believe 430addict bought all 5 sets of Trev's 430 cf handles.

Great post Jose. I'm waiting for delivery of my 2007 F430 and anxious to install the Capristo remote which I just ordered. I've heard the sound on a 2005 and it's awesome! The best of two worlds as I love the exhaust sound full on but my partner likes it subdued on cruises.
Question: Did you install both solenoid connections without having to remove the wheel well covers as in StefVan's post on FChat? Getting mentally prepared for this DIY. Thanks.

I'm doing a lot of waiting at the moment.

Waiting for my Scud (still at the dealer, delivery in less than 2 weeks!)
Waiting for my Capristo remote (tracking says it has been held up by customs at the border)
WAITING FOR SPRING (most brutal winter in recent memory)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
