The complete Ferrari F50 CAPRISTO high performance system designed as a balanced increase between power, drive ability and sound quality, without forgetting of course a substantial loss of weight. All of this is delivered while maintaining the CAPRISTO "best of both worlds" philosophy, which provides the capability to produce an aggressive exhaust note under acceleration and a more subdued sound for city driving.
This system was designed to maximize performance and sound. With de-catalyzed, pipe length ordered to firing-order, Y-collector, equal-length manifolds, the Capristo F50 is the ultimate, technically modelled and designed manifold for the iconic platform. The F50’s engine above 4500 rpm really does not like backpressure, thus using the valves the gasses will flow through a direct-exit unsilenced channel with a few key differences:
Manifolds: Ø45mm Y-collector manifolds: 2x Ø50mm Exhaust and X-pipe channel: Ø60,3mm Silencer bypass: Ø50mm
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).
PERFORMANCE HEADERS: The manifolds employ a 6-3-1 design and significantly changed pipe routing compared with the stock manifolds to maximize exhaust flow.
CAPRISTO Heat Shields/Blankets:
The headers and Exhaust X-Pipe come standard with the innovative CAPRISTO Heat Shield. The Heat Shields are made from a very high-heat resistant material, initially developed and used by NASA. This helps to reduce radiant heat from the exhaust headers and sports catalysts. The shields are heat resistant for temperatures of up to 1300 degrees Celsuis.
Reduced heat or temperatures in the engine compartment improves performance. Cooler air boxes result in a cooler air temperature for the engine to “breath-in”. In turn, the denser air makes more horsepower.
As the outside of the glaring hot exhaust is shielded from its surroundings, the shields also reduce the possibility of fire which sometimes arises from liquids/oil getting in contact with the exhaust system.
*The exhaust system is designed to be installed directly into existing OEM mounting points*
*Recommended For Off-Road and Track Use Only*
As the F50 does not have dual lambdas pre/post cat you will not see any CEL.
