Default SOUL | Porsche 986 Boxster Valved Muffler Bypass Conversion

We're happy to bring a cost effective ($895 MSRP) exhaust solution to the market which delivers an invigorating sound at the press of a button! With the valves closed by default, you'll only get a PSE inspired sound when you desire.


DEVELOPMENT: We wanted to design a cost effective valved exhaust that would offer 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 - no shaking the garage or waking up the neighbors. Minimizing drone was also a priority. Porsche implemented a section of piping in the exhaust that can easily be unbolted and replaced – a perfect location to incorporate valved Muffler Bypass tubes!

SOUND: Don’t worry about starting up the car in your garage – valves are closed by default! The OEM driving Porsche characteristics and exhaust note are retained until you open the valves, and when you do you’ll be treated to an aggressive bark as the mufflers are bypassed. Exhaust gases are routed out through bypass tubes with valves open to give a flat six roar.


CONSTRUCTION: Each set is made in house by our fabrication team utilizing brand new OEM Porsche muffler piping and application specific valves with a closed mode by default.



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 and valve controller kit is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping.



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.

You may recognize my name from several past roles in the aftermarket performance industry, and I am now here now to take care of any of your needs. To say I’m excited to join the team and grow the company is an understatement. During my time here I aim to bring the Soul brand and product line to greater national/international recognition. I will be expanding our product line and partnering with “A Players” in the industry to become the one-stop shop for everything you need to maximize your driving experience. In doing so, I will not lose site of our core values and will maintain a hands-on approach to our community and customer involvement.

I’m aiming to instruct with PCA in the 2019 season both at track days and AutoX, and I plan on participating in some endurance racing series as well. We are going to have a lot of fun, and I invite you to join us! If you are in the Tristate Area, I'd love to meet up with some of the locals at upcoming events. Let me know what you are up to and when : )
Don't hesitate to reach out with any inquiries you have on enhancing your various vehicles, I would love to catch up and chat about your project. Feel free to email me at [email protected], or call/text me at 484 883 6197.

A look as we build a set in house. Notice the gas line which pumps Argon gas into the exhaust as we weld it. Back purging the welds ensures proper penetration and prevents sugaring (a black, crusty appearance of the weld metal on the inside of the pipe) resulting in stronger and more durable welds.

Love that picture of the TIG welding in progress. I was in the industrial gas and welding equipment business for 41 years and I am still thrilled to see perfect TIG weld beads. This kind of attention to detail, the Argon purge in the tubes being welded, makes for an ultra strong and clean weld with little to no inclusions or voids. It is also a relatively expensive process because Argon is not cheap and quite a bit is used in the purge besides what comes out of the torch. I have no affiliation to Soul but I do appreciate fine work.

We very much appreciate your compliments and appreciation for the attention to detail that we try to give our products. One of our core values is that we try and build better whenever we can and consider all aspects in a deep dive when developing processes and components. If we're going to weld, the welding should be done right. Should you have any advice to pass on to us garnered through your years of experience, it would be much appreciated!

Thank you again,

-Mike
