    Guys,

    I know this subject has been beaten to death but I'm still not sure what is fact and what isn't.

    Is it true the L1, L2, L3 are all exactly the same in volume at WOT with the valve open on a 355?

    If that is the case, surely you can purchase a L1 system, fit the Capristo valve and remote opening key fob and then have a L3 system when you choose to have the exhaust valve open fully all of the time?

    Is this correct or am I off base? I find it hard to believe that's the case because the L3 I've heard a few times is so ear splittingly loud at WOT I can't believe the L1 is the same - ?

    My Larini appears to have bitten the dust somewhat unexpectedly hence the search for a new system.

    Thanks,
    LL

    I prefer Level 3, only when you need to, you can tune it down a notch so the neighbors dont spill their coffee in the morning :)

    Can anyone answer the actual question? ;)

    I'm also being recommended Kressieg, but they at £800/$1600 more expensive than a cappy. Is it worth it? Quality doesn't look better - ?

    Now i am going to be a little clever. Reading your OP and counting the number of question marks including the thread title "Capristo L1,L2 or L3? You asked 6 questions. I answered the thread title question by suggesting level one.
    Then i noticed in your last post you asked a 7th question :D:D How about that, you asked 7 questions;)

    On a 355, the L1-3 are all the same noise at WOT.

    Thank you! Will go the L1 + Valve + fob route. Seems the best of both worlds.

    I have level 1 and love it. Perfect combo. I have the Cappy valve too and considered the key fob kit to open it, but it is actually very nice as is. Volume knob is under your right foot.
