DEVELOPMENT: Our aim was to increase the volume of the rear exhaust while maintaining a refined tone and level of volume – even with upgraded catalytic converter sections. The factory valves are electronically controlled unlike older “open or closed” vacuum style valves. Able to work variably, the valves will gradually open and close depending on several factors of engine operation. Even under full throttle application in Sport mode the valves will still not stay open 100% of the time. With this in mind it was imperative that our system have a smooth transition during valve operation.
To tame drone we made use of our bespoke X-pipe muffler. Internally this muffler is quite unique. It has little to no restriction in the flow path, using straight through piping that is perforated to allow exhaust gasses to escape and become muffled in the surrounding packing material of the muffler body. We incorporated an internal X-pipe to allow the exhaust flow to merge smoothly. These characteristics combined were crucial towards reducing and smoothing out the drone in the 2,000-2,400rpm range while enhancing that higher pitched note we were after in both the valves closed and open conditions. With valves open exhaust gases are free to flow through 3″ piping with an x-pipe to enhance the tone before exiting out the tips. Exhaust gasses still have a secondary flow path to “talk” with the muffler, encouraging a fuller, more robust tone.
CONSTRUCTION: Each system is assembled in house in the USA out of mandrel bent, thick wall .065″” T304L stainless steel. Back purged TIG welding (with ARCAL™ Prime argon gas) ensures proper weld penetration and longevity. Water jet cut flanges are made to ISO 9001:2015 standards with tolerances of +/- 0.003 inches for extreme precision. We fabricate this exhaust using thick gauge aluminum fixtures which act as a great heat sink during the welding process and prevent warping not only of our products, but the fixtures themselves to ensure perfect fitment.
BOLT ON AND GO: Every component is rigorously quality-checked, tested in a fixture to guarantee fitment, and then foam packed to ensure they arrive in perfect condition. New high grade hardware and valve adapters are included for installation.

Anrthony Froyan –
Had this exhaust installed on my 2020 Carrera S along with the sport cats and let me tell you, what a difference!! I had the stock non sport exhaust on my car so it was always a bit too quiet for my tastes. I wanted something louder, yet still refined. When the original non-valved exhaust was released by SOUL, I called and chatted with Paul about it. He asked my what my driving style was and then he recommended that I wait a bit more for the valved exhaust. The wait began….2 months later, the valved version was released and I placed my order. 7 weeks from order date, my exhaust shipped. Let me tell you, the wait was absolutely worth it! This exhaust is everything I had hoped it would be. The volume is turned up without being obnoxious. The tone is much better and I now hear more details that just weren’t there before. At low RPMs, there’s a nice bass which gives the car that understated power feeling. At high RPMs, theres an awesome wail which truly makes the car sound how it should’ve left the factory. The car finally sounds like a 911 should. No drone or annoying noises. If you are considering this exhaust for your 922, buy with confidence! It also doesn’t hurt that the build quality, attention to detail and customer service were all top notch as well.
