Default SOUL | 718 Valved Exhaust and Downpipes

Hey everyone! We're happy to have expanded our Boxster / Cayman exhaust lineup into the 718 realm! Have a look below at our Valved Exhaust and downpipes below.

We'll be looking at a single pipe design from turbo to tips in 2019. We have first hand experience with such a system, and have been taking in feedback. We're going to make it so it is as aggressive as possible while attenuating negative qualities, like rasp and drone, to the best of our ability.

We will be doing more testing and videos with various models to get a nice catalog of data. If anyone is interested in getting dyno numbers from a reputable shop, we'll pay for the dyno runs. We believe in getting third party, repeatable, realistic results and we won't be making up any power claims without proof. Contact us regarding that.

That said, we're always here to help in any way we can. Our contact info is at the bottom of the page, just let us know how we can help!

SOUL VALVED EXHAUST
MSRP:
$2,995.00 – $3,145.00
Click for Product Page





DEVELOPMENT: Our goal was to offer a valved exhaust that delivers a refined cabin presence. It is easy to increase the volume of the 718, but a challenge to bring out a more aggressive note while making the flat four sound distinctly Porsche which is a common complaint. The turbo and large amount of sound deadening in the 718 do a great job of keeping the cabin calm, but raising the volume to compensate can bring out negative notes in the exhaust such as rasp and drone. We applied the same design principles as our renowned Valved Exhaust line for previous Boxster / Cayman generations to deliver a refined increase in sound that will also pair well with an upgraded, freer flowing downpipe to yield a mature exhaust note without ever being overbearing. This is a superior option for cars not equipped with the Porsche Sport Exhaust from the factory.





CONSTRUCTION: Each system is made from mandrel bent T304L stainless steel tubing (featuring 2.5″ OD over axle pipes) and features mufflers with fortified casings in the interest of durability. With valves closed the exhaust gasses are routed into the SOUL muffler, which is packed with high quality sound deadening material designed to withstand abuse and not blow out over time. The mufflers are incredibly effective at minimizing drone. Exhaust gasses make their way through the muffler and out through perforations into the outer piping. With valves open, exhaust gasses are now free to exit out through large 2.5″ piping while perforations allow exhaust gasses to “talk” with the muffler, encouraging a fuller, more robust tone.





SOUND: You could describe the sound experience as PSE Plus! The tone in the cabin with valves open is about the same as PSE, not intrusive at all. Under heavy load the volume difference is noticeable, more aggressive while still refined. With valves closed, you can carry on a phone conversation on the highway without any intrusion from the exhaust. When paired with an upgraded downpipe / catalytic converter the exhaust offers a respectable level of snarling and crackling without droning at all RPM and throttle loads. Sport mode unleashes an increase in crackles and burbles.

VALVE OPERATION: A valve controller is included with every system and is required for non-PSE cars. PSE equipped cars will retain full factory functionality by using the factory vacuum lines. The valve controller is optional for PSE equipped cars and allows full valve control at all times. Valve functionality can be controlled by the factory PSE button, included valve controller fobs, and with HomeLink buttons.

TIPS: Choose from several different tip styles and finishes. Single wall tips have around a half inch of depth adjustment to allow for the tips to be sunk in to just show the logo at their deepest and pulled out more if desired. Double wall chrome tips are longer in length by 1″ and protrude from the bumper aggressively. Logo customization is available, please contact us.

SOUL SPORT CATALYTIC CONVERTER
MSRP:

DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING: The 718 is rather quiet in factory format. Replacing the restrictive factory catalytic converter with a freer flowing unit adds to drivability and also unlocks the sweet sounds of the turbo without adding any negative notes to the overall exhaust tone. The HJS HD 200 cell catalytic converter and smooth mandrel bent piping ranging from 90mm down to 55mm upon exit encourages better throttle response and a more exciting exhaust note. Easy to bolt in with no modifications required, this is a great, reversible solution to make your Boxster or Cayman more exciting.





CONSTRUCTION: Each downpipe is assembled out of mandrel bent, thick wall T304L stainless steel, then rigorously quality checked. Back purged TIG welding ensures proper weld penetration and longevity.

HJS CATALYSTS: The highest quality catalytic converters available, known for their industry leading flow and durability. They are efficient enough to meet strict EURO 4 emission standards while still allowing for an increase in flow – all without a check engine light. The HD design uses premium triple foil winding for maximum strength. The brazing stripe is an extra feature in the interest of durability – it prevents the core from moving or experiencing any damage from sustained high horsepower abuse. The 200 cell design uses a premium wash coat of precious metals to achieve a high level of effectiveness at catalyzing even with the increase in exhaust flow. We cover our HJS catalytic converters with an unprecedented 3 year warranty while the materials and workmanship are backed by our Lifetime Warranty.

SOUL COMPETITION DOWNPIPE

DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING: The 718 is rather quiet in factory format. Eliminating the restrictive factory catalytic converter adds to drivability and also unlocks the sweet sounds of the turbo with a major increase in snarling and crackles from the exhaust. The sound is aggressive without droning in the cabin. Smooth mandrel bent piping ranging from 90mm down to 55mm upon exit encourages better throttle response and a more exciting exhaust note. Easy to bolt in with no modifications required, this is a great, reversible solution to make your Boxster or Cayman more exciting. We highly recommend an ECU tune with this modification to prevent boost spikes that result from the major increase in exhaust flow.

I just made an offer on a used 2018 base car (gearshift), I am joining NJ Motorsports drivers club. It will be the car I use there. It has the standard exhaust on it. I live in the Philly suburbs and I know the folks at Fabspeed and AWE well but I have no experience with your company. The 718 will be my 43rd Porsche and the 4th one I now own. Perhaps we should talk, warranty means nothing to me by the way.

Thanks for reaching out, it's nice to meet another local petrolhead. Although I am not a member, I usually receive several invites to the private days at NJMP, perhaps I'll see you there. I'll also be instructing with RTR PCA and the Trackxperienz group if you intend on attending any of their events this year. I would love to hear more about your background with the Porsche brand and the vehicles you own. I'll be sure you make an educated decision on anything you'd like to do on the 718 or otherwise. I'll shoot you a PM now to exchange contact information.

You are in contact with Nick, at the shop I now use. I spoke to him yesterday about your products. Lets just say it was over 48 years ago when I drove my first 911.

I know Nick well. Convince him to join us at the track this season so we can all have some fun together, that RS4 of his should be a beast haha. That's a respectable number. I expect you'll have some good stories over lunch/dinner at NJMP, my treat if we end up there at the same time.

Deal went through John, Porsche #43 being picked up Saturday, then going into Nicks shop to get it ready. I left you a private message.

I think Nick filled you in on my cars, I tend not to put all that out in forums (Ferrarichat people know me well so it is different there), since even if I do not intend for it to sound like bragging, when you have owned 470 (that I can remember) cars, it can be hard to make it sound like anything else.

Congrats on the new car! I did have some conversation with Nick about your cars and sounds like you have a good time with them to say the least. I left you a VM so we can catch up in regards to your PMs, I look forward to chatting with you

Is there much difference in the PSE sound with the addition of the Soul X connector at the tips?
I can see the theoretical difference that it would make to smooth the exhaust pulses though that section, but wondering how much real world difference it would make?

The volume will increase ever so slightly and the exhaust note will sound slightly smoother as a result of an increase in efficiency. We do consider it primarily a cosmetic upgrade.
