Capristo for F355 Berlinetta

Hi all. Apologise if this has been done to death, but I have a query for all those who have experience with Capristo exhaust for the F355. I currently have a catted Mille-Miglia. It gives a good note at both idle/low revs and the top end but my view is the M-M sits towards the conservative end of the spectrum. I want to get more out of that famous V8 (note/volume wise only as power gains are not important to me) and the Capristo comes up frequently as an option. Of course there are several options level 1-3 and the option of test pipes. Ideally I want bit more at the low rev end and definitely more at the top end, with the only caveat being that I want to drive in town and long distances without getting out of the car with bleedeing ears or pissed off nearby drivers. I`ve read all I can, and listened on YouTube, but just interested in what others may have found works or doesn`t work. Cheers

Well, I`ve decided to get a Capristo bypass valve and level 1 silencer and Seca Manifolds. The cats will stay in. Ill post a vid of the result should anyone be interested in a similar combination. expect mid Jan 2014.

Update: The Capristo silencer is ready but the Seca exhaust manifold is still three weeks off completion (hand made in Italy)...Im told its because the Italians like to have a longer festive season than the Germans: Ve shall hav vun day celebration, ven ve get bark to vork vun two vun two....or.....vino pił rosso per favore, vino rosso

Its official. The Capristo exhaust on the F355 sounds amazing, utterly mind blowingly amazing. Beyond 4000rpm it sounds like a V8 F1 car. The tone at low revs is awesome and not artifical and when the bypass valve opens, its what the F14 T should have sounded like
