DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING:  The 996 Carrera incorporates the catalytic converters into the rear exhaust, which leaves focus on optimizing the flow of the factory flow paths. By smoothing the interface between the flange/primary tubes, using smooth-radius, large-diameter bends, and implementing a collector with equal inputs from each primary, we have created a smoother exhaust flow path from the factory headers (which do not have a true 3-1 merge collector) and a greater volume for 3.6L S model engines. This will increase exhaust flow and optimize your Porsche exhaust system without any drawbacks to sound quality, emissions, or check engine lights.

CONSTRUCTION:  Our precision-engineered headers are meticulously fabricated from T304L stainless steel. Proven design elements including port-matched flanges, smooth-radius primary tubing, and collectors that optimize the exhaust flow all work in conjunction to maximize power gains. Every set is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping.

BOLT ON AND GO:  Each set of headers is tested in a fixture to guarantee fitment and then foam packed to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.. Thorough header installation instructions are included in the box for a straightforward install that can be performed by most DIY enthusiasts.

LIFETIME WARRANTY:  Enjoy your SOUL exhaust parts 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 issues or answer any questions that you may have.

    I’m impressed with the Soul headers.
    I already had the Soul Sport Cats, so when a lightly used(2500 mile) set of Soul headers came up I was quick to trade the unused Agency Power headers and some cash for the Soul headers.
    I know they’re low mileage because Luis hasn’t had them but a few months.
    I’m very happy with the quality of Soul products. (Sport Cats and headers)
    I took my 996.2 on a lunchtime test drive.
    The Soul headers really impressed my butt dyno.
    The additional power feels good throughout the RPM range.
    MUCH better than factory headers.
    If they feel THAT good on the stock 3.6, they’re definitely going to help with the 4.0L build coming up.
    The slightly louder sound was nice too.
