We wanted to form a Porsche exhaust that’s 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 – making 3″ tubing a necessity. We experimented with adding a mixing chamber to our X-pipe design. The 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 back pressure for higher HP, and enhances the sound quality of the exhaust system. Quad race resonators make a discernible difference in reducing drone while encouraging a more refined exhaust note.
Third-party testing was performed on a Mustang Dyno at R/T Tuning. Baseline power with SOUL Competition X-Pipe Exhaust System and a COBB off the shelf map was 554 whp and 642 ft-lbs of torque. A custom tune pushed power to 562 whp and 631 ft-lbs of torque with significant gains from midrange all the way through to redline. The 997.2 ushered in a new level of refinement to the Porsche 911 with a nice increase in cabin quality. The exhaust makes itself known in the cabin without being overly aggressive – you have to try very hard to make the system drone. You’ll be treated to a greater presence from the turbos and a bolder flat six engine note.
Each exhaust system is 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. Choose from several hand-finished exhaust tip options to get the look that suits your 997.2 the best – or reuse your factory tips. Mikalor Supra Heavy-Duty Clamps are included to securely hold our exhaust tips onto the exhaust system. 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.
