DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING: SOUL wanted to get as aggressive as possible while minimizing drone – greater volume with a greater amount of pops and burbles on deceleration. Support for high power was another consideration – necessitating 3″ tubing. We experimented with adding a mixing chamber into our X-pipe design. Analysis in 3D CAD software showed a general increase in velocity gained downstream of the mixing chamber across a band of measured pressure and temperature levels. This produces optimal flow characteristics, reduced backpressure for higher HP, and enhances the sound quality of the system. Helmholtz resonators were engineered to target and reduce droning in the 2000-300 RPM range. Quad race resonators make a discernible difference in reducing drone while encouraging a more refined exhaust note.
SOUND: You’ll finally be able to hear the exhaust and turbos sing. The 996 Turbo platform is prone to droning in the 2-3k RPM range with free flowing exhausts. The Helmholtz resonators and quad resonators cut down on droning, but volume in the cabin is certainly pronounced, this is a system for this who like it aggressive. If a refined cabin experience is more important than a CUP car inspired tone, the SOUL sport exhaust with catalytic converters is a more suitable option.
CONSTRUCTION: Each system made from mandrel bent T304L 3″ .065″ wall stainless steel tubing, straight through race resonators with a full metal packing design for maximum durability, and laser cut brackets for perfect fitment.
BOLT ON AND GO: Each exhaust is tested in a fixture to guarantee fitment and then foam packed to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. Thorough installation instructions are included in the box for a straightforward install that can be performed by most DIY enthusiasts.
