Capristo exhaust brackets
Just bought 2005 F430 that had headers replaced few months ago to MK II during routine service. Apparently no CEL or symptoms but tech found a leak and replaced both.
I've read various threads about Capristo brackets as a preventative measure for MK II headers cracking but both the dealer and a local independent felt that brackets did not do anything. I've also read about headers that cracked after installation of Capristo bracket. Some suggest that the brackets actually make thing worse.
So any idea what's the chance of MK II cracking and whether it's better to get Capristo brackets? The car is being used for commuting and will not be tracked or raced.
