In this video I head over to my buddy Richard’s house to work on his Ferrari 458 Italia. He purchased an exhaust controller module from Forza Componenti for about $400. The module plugs in between the factory wiring harness and the exhaust valve solenoids. This allow you to manually open and close the exhaust valves through a remote control

When the factory exhaust valves are open, the 458 exhaust really sounds awesome. You get all the pops and crackling that a Ferrari should have instead of sounding like a Prius. Because the valves are now controlled with a remote, you can close the valves when you don’t want to upset your neighbors.

Total time was about 3 hours of work. We had to remove the wheels, diffuser, fender liners, and rear bumper just to gain access to the valves and solenoids. And a congratulations is in order for Richard as this was his first time ever working on a car! Woohoo!
