Audi R8 Gen2 Facelift Valved Exhaust, OPF Spares & Carbon Diffuser
The all new iconic Capristo Valved Exhaust System for the Facelifted R8 offers the best of both worlds through its capability to produce an aggressive exhaust note under acceleration, and a more subdued sound for city driving. At lower engine speeds and during cruise operation the valves are closed and produce a deeper exhaust note. At wide-open throttle the valves open, releasing the full symphony of the engine. The new R8 now includes OPF (Otto Particle Filters) after the cats. Our Capristo system is OPF-back; however, OPF Spare Pipes (delete) are available (will require a tune for CEL removal).
The opening or closing of the Capristo valves are controlled by the engine ECU (switchable via the steering wheel Sports Mode), therefore working in the same way as the original equipment.
Alternatively, you could use the optional Capristo CES3 Programmable module for the exhaust valves, which would provide the ability to open and close the valves via remote and override the OEM closing of the valves at certain RPMs and conditions.
Capristo Exhaust systems are engineered and manufactured utilizing advanced 3D Laser-Scanning, CAD Design, Digital prototyping, and CNC-bending/milling at our factory in Germany. Each system is made of high-grade T309 (1.4828) Stainless Steel and hand polished to a mirror finish. After extensive research, this specific alloy was chosen for its sonic resonance properties, low weight, and durability which are close to the properties of Inconel (used in F1).
