    I drive a 2016 Porsche Cayman S. I have always been heavy into modifying everything I own, The Cayman is no exception. Immediately I was intoxicated with the sound of the PSE exhaust from the factory yet I knew that would not last long. Within 2 months of having the car I ordered Fabspeed Catless Headers. Installing these was nothing short of “frustrating”. Nothing seemed to fit and align like factory. I ended up having to create my own thin socket on the lathe in order to reach several bolts into the head. a 5″ bolt and nut was required to force alignment of the fabspeed kit to the factory PSE. When it was finally done…It sounded incredible. So loud and So aggressive. I was hooked. Dyno numbers for this system on a mustang dyno were 315 Whp and 275 tq with other supporting mods and CB tuning/ Euro Dynamics Tune. I drove the car like this for several months.

    Fast forward to April, I was contacted by Soul Performance and propositioned with replacing my current exhaust system for their full LONG TUBE headers and valved exhuast. I was happy with my set up so why would I change? Well I was intrigued by the idea of more exhaust allowing for some more usable power. Also upon seeing their product and quality control I knew they were going to be a serious contender to the market. I wanted in and agreed. I dropped my car off for less than a week while they test fit and installed the exhaust. I didn’t expect much in terms of sound nor power pick up being i already had a full catless set up….I was BLOWN AWAY when i picked the 3.4 Cayman up. It sounded like a GT3, like a Porsche should sound! Power, Respect, and Deep noted. I fell in love all over again. I could not stop manual shifting the car just to hear the backfires and gurgles. I took the long way home that day.

    Several days later on the same exact tune, at the same shop as before, and almost identical weather aside from a few degrees hotter (78 vs 69 the last test) I dyno’d the car once again. 326 whp and 287 tq!!! from an exhaust change. Those gains are no joke and it is felt through out the entire rev range. If I was purchasing an exhaust for a Porsche again. I would not look anywhere else but Soul Performance. I went in not expecting much and left with an exceedingly good experience. The finish resembles titanium, and the badass sound have gotten me nothing but compliments and thumbs up everywhere I go. Please see photos and video for an idea of sound but these do not even do justice. I Highly Recommend SOUL PERFORMANCE.

    It’s exactly what I was hoping for. Rather similar to stock (like a better version of stock) with valves closed which keeps my HOA happy but the valves open sound is insanely awesome. Your headers are on my Christmas list, thanks very much guys

    The one thing disappointing about my 2015 Cayman S was the lack of exhaust note. After considerable research I decide to opt for the Soul Performance cat back system with valve controller (I didn’t have PSEicon), slashed single wall tips. The exhaust was on my doorstep in 3 days and next day on my Cayman. I’m relatively handy with a spanner so decided to self-install, extracting the Porsche exhaust was easy, didn’t even need to remove the rear wheels. Just reversed onto the ramp and 2 hours later the new SSP pipes were on; fitted perfectly, sections just slid together and bolted up beautifully. The install instructions were plain and simple and Porsche engineering is second to none – eight bolts and your done..

    Connecting into the vacuum and electrics were a little more involved, mostly it was time taken getting to the engine bay! Once in though the SPP install instructions were very clear and involved little-to-no real cutting in and no actual irreversible modification at all (so if I ever sell and need to return to stock – no issues).

    Best thing though is the pipes and tips look great and that awesome sound; growls at low rev, pops & barks on overrun and roars at high revs. If you don’t want to annoy your neighbors at 5am leaving for work just hit the button and close the valves, to get a sound a couple of notches better than the stock exhaust. I have a 130 mile round trip commute and enjoy every mile now that little bit more. Best of both worlds! Guys at SPP also give me a tip – program the “my link garage buttons” with the valve remote – took 2 mins and now I don’t need the remote fob.

    Great quality product, great service from the team at SPP and a simple DIY install.

    Valves open from here on – now my Cayman S sings.

    After two months of listening to every exhaust clips for the 981 Boxster S, I found one. I was looking for a cup car/F1 with a balance of the natural flat six sound. There were three exhaust in this category, all being valved. Soul Performance was offering a great deal and the icing on the cake was the remote can be programmed to homelink (have yet to try). I wanted the control to be integrated but don’t want to go through the trouble of installing the PSE button.

    Review: Day 1, 2 Hour drive (rush hour, city and highway mixed)

    Aesthetics: The exhaust looks great. The finish is unique and matches the satin platinum wheels very well. Being the nature of the exhaust, I went with an angled single wall tip for a more aftermarket look. Love the “Soul” logo etched on the tips.

    Startup: A nice roar on start up. It’s slightly louder than stock but not obnoxious. I have to test to see does it default to open/close or previous to tell if there’s a difference between start with valve open/close.

    Valves Closed: Its near stock quite under 2K cruising, which I wanted. I can slip in and out of the neighborhood easily. Driving around town is doable when as long as your easy on the throttle. Under load it’s louder than stock. I like it but gotta test it with the wife. It’s manageable though since I’m easy on the throttle in town. Need more drive time to see how it us in the upper RPM.

    Valves Open: It’s monstrously loud. A little louder than I expected, but pleasant given that its very tamed with the valved closed. Under 3K, it has a deep roar similar to other exhaust. Right at 4K is where magic happens. The flat six sings at this range and above. Hard acceleration from 4 to 7 is harmonious. There are burbles when letting off but not excessive.

    Con: I wasn’t found of the remote label being lock/unlock. Though I knew this before buying it. I’m intending to program the homelink for the valve operations so I won’t need the remote. It’s a lot cheaper than to install the PSE button. Also because the remote does not stay illuminated (not designed to), sometimes I can’t tell if it register when pressed (like the PSE button). Though the exhaust note will let you know.

    Overall: Love it. I wanted an exhaust with the best of both world. I was afraid of picking one that’s too loud for driving through neighborhood and around town but too quiet for spirited driving. The note with the valve open above 4K is well worth the exhaust.
