DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING:
We 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 in full song! Expect a very aggressive sport cars sound at full throttle. The 996 Turbo platform is prone to droning in the 2-3k RPM range with freer flowing exhausts. Our 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, our catted Sport exhaust 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. Custom Mikalor Supra Heavy-Duty Clamps are included to securely install system to vehicle.
BOLT ON AND GO: Each exhaust is tested in a fixture to ensure perfect fitment. Thorough installation instructions are included in the box for a straightforward install that can be performed by most DIY enthusiasts.
LIFETIME WARRANTY: Enjoy your Soul exhaust components with confidence on both the street and track as they are covered by our Lifetime Warranty! Our team will quickly work with you to resolve any questions or issues that you may have.
