Porsche 987.2 Product Showcase


At Soul Performance Products we take the Porsche 987.2 chassis seriously, so seriously in fact, we acquired a 2009 Cayman S to use as a long term development car.

When you purchase from Soul Performance Products, you are buying more than an upgrade for your car. We aim to surpass and redefine all expectations of how a product is provided and how the customer is cared for. We not only always carry stock of our products, but cover them with a Lifetime Warranty.

We developed the VALVED EXHAUST on our own Project 987.2 Cayman S to ensure the delta between exhaust modes was noticeable and refined, even when paired with aftermarket headers. Our system offers a true night and day difference between mild and race like tones at the press of a button

COMPETITION HEADERS provide the most bang for your buck performance modification available. Removing the catalytic converter you are able to reduce heat, save weight and provide significant power gains at a reasonable cost.

Our LONG TUBE STREET HEADERS are built around large diameter, free flowing HJS HD 200-cell catalytic converters with long tube runners for maximum gains in power, throttle response, and flat-six engine tone. Add performance without throwing a check engine light.

DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING: By creating unique applications for the 987.2 platform, we’ve focused on sizing our header runners (2”) and collectors correctly to extract maximum power from the 3.4L engine while producing great gains from the 2.9L as well.

During dyno testing on a Dynojet, we experienced max gains of 8 whp and 11 ft-lbs of torque at 4,100 RPM on the Soul project Cayman S (PDK) with our Long Tube Street Headers and Exhaust. Competition Headesr + Valved Exhaust unlocked 9 whp and 10 ft-lbs of torque at 4,100 RPM

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 component is rigorously quality-checked prior to shipping.



Each system is made from mandrel bent T304L stainless steel tubing and features mufflers with fortified casings in the interest of durability. You can order the exhaust to suit your specific aesthetic desires – select from our Signature Satin or a full polish finishes, with tips of your choosing.

BOLT ON AND GO: Each product 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.

LIFETIME WARRANTY: Enjoy your Soul exhaust components with confidence on both the street and track as they are covered for life! Our team will quickly work with you to resolve any issues or questions that you may have. We cover our HJS catalytic converters with an unprecedented 3 year warranty while the headers themselves are backed by our Lifetime Warranty.
All of our components are in stock, let me know if you have any questions or would like to get set up with Soul today!

Thanks, Croc999! The valves can be operated in different ways depending on the spec of your car. If equipped with PSE, you can operate the valves via the already existing OEM button. If your car does not have the PSE, you can operate the valves via a key fob that is included with the exhaust. We provide detailed installation guides and reference material to make the install a breeze!

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best,

Preparation for shipment! We foam pack every product to ensure your Soul products arrive in perfect condition. We work with the foam company to evaluate every product for best shipping practices - how we can fit the products into the smallest appropriate box while providing ample protection. We include installation instructions that are also a packing checklist. Headers are double checked in our fixtures and leak tested prior to shipping. The Long Tube Street Headers include new hardware which you also see. We include a microfiber towel to wipe the exhaust components down after installation to minimize the oils smoking off during your first session.

These look nice. Not so sure about your name, maybe if I was buying music equipment. :)
Thank you! The name is derived from the fact that we were unhappy with experiences we were seeing some customers have, so we decided to make customer service our primary objective. :)

Does the valved system remember the open/closed setting from the last time the car was shut off, or does it default to Open (or closed) every time it is started?

Like most systems it will always start with valves open due to a lack of vacuum to keep the valves closed. On our 987.2 S we just tap the HomeLink button to close the valves while the car is cranking on startup.

I notice there is a check valve between the engine vacuum source and the vacuum solenoid. The OEM PSE doesn't have this AFAIK, but I notice that the install kits from Soul, Fabspeed, and Carnewal all have the check valve. Can you tell me the purpose of the check valve?

The check valve ensures that at full throttle the vacuum solenoid receives adequate vacuum to keep the valves closed. PSE does not have this built in and the valves will open at higher RPM / higher throttle input.

Here's the check valve in operation - we've hooked up our display 991.1 Carrera Valved Exhaust up to a vacuum source (how we check valve operation on every system before shipping). Valves are closed to start - notice how removing the vacuum source with check valve in place keeps the valves shut - once you remove the check valve the valves open.

Do you still respond to the [email protected] address? I had two emails go unanswered.
