DEVELOPMENT: SOUL wanted to design a valved exhaust that would offer the ability to go from “Cruising Sunday to Track Day” at the press of a button with the default setting to be valves closed for a more refined startup experience. Following the extreme effectiveness of the mufflers used for the 987 / 981 exhausts to combat drone, they applied the same design principles to a custom muffler for the 997 Carrera.
SOUND: The design of our exhaust channels exhaust gases through our bespoke mufflers for a sophisticated and sporty sound that is unmistakably Porsche with valves closed, and this is the default operation setting. With valves open, you’re getting a CUP–inspired straight pipe sound. With valves closed during cruising, there is no drone — even with aftermarket catalytic converters! Due to the aggressive, free–flowing nature of the valves–open mode, the volume is loud when paired with aftermarket catalytic converters or catless replacement pipes.
CONSTRUCTION: Each system is made in-house by our fabrication team from mandrel bent .060″ wall T304L stainless steel tubing, bespoke SOUL mufflers, and laser cut brackets w well over 15 man hours invested in each set to make sure they are perfect.
BOLT ON AND GO: Each exhaust is built and tested in a thick gauge aluminum fixture (which prevents warping) to ensure perfect fitment. Every set is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping and then foam packed to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.
