Programmable Exhaust Remote Control Kit – CES3
The Programmable On-Board Exhaust Remote Control Kit was designed by CAPRISTO to work with the CAPRISTO exhaust valves, which opens and closes exhaust valves on exhaust systems fitted with pressure ports. (Please note that this is a replacement unit in case your CAPRISTO remote becomes defective).
The reason to have exhaust back pressure control is to obtain a better engine torque band and to maintain drive-ability in a wide range of conditions.
Today high performance engines prefer a free flowing exhaust at wide throttle openings and high rpm. At smaller throttle openings and low rpm encountered in traffic, a slight increase in exhaust back pressure, results in better low end torque and a more user friendly engine. This pressure is controlled by one or a set of butterfly valves in the exhaust system.
With this programmable valve control unit the opening and closing points of the exhaust valves can be set to your preferences. The exhaust control unit constantly monitors the back pressure in the exhaust system while driving. Under acceleration the back pressure increases and at a preset pressure the controller opens the exhaust butterflies. This releases the back pressure and increase the exhaust gas flow and horsepower.
Three control modes are available.
- The first is a cruise mode in which the valves will open later and at higher exhaust pressure levels.This allows for a quieter and more comfortable drive.
- The second is a sport mode which allows a quicker opening of the valves for a more aggressive style of driving.
- The third mode leaves the valves in the open position. This is oriented towards track use where higher rpm and constant full throttle application requires a freeflow of exhaust gases.
The opening and closing points for the first two modes are user programmable within certain safety limits.
The key fob supplied with the kit is a stylish unit with two extra buttons that could be used on other equipment capable of receiving the signals (444Mhz).
An on board self learning function allows you to program more key fobs should the need arise. An added safety feature is a fail safe condition which allows the exhaust valves to go to the open position in case of an electrical or vacuum failure. This prevents engine and or header damage from excessive heat build up.
The supplied wiring harness is already fitted with connectors for the solenoid valve and controller.
The power supply and ground wire are the only wires that need to be ended for your specific application.
This make for an easy and no fuss installation.

The iconic CAPRISTO Valved Exhaust System 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 opening or closing of the CAPRISTO valves are controlled by the CES-3 Programmable Control Module, which provides the ability to open and close the valves at a touch of a button.
The programmable control unit provides 3 modes operated via a remote key fob:
Cruise Exhaust valves open at higher RPMs
Sport Exhaust valves open at lower RPMs and hard acceleration
Open Exhaust Valves Remain Open
Both the Cruise and Sport mode can be individually programmed for specific backpressure allowances to determine when the exhaust valves open. This allows precise control of the exhaust based on the drivers personal tastes and tolerance.
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).
