Just ordered a soul performance exhaust

Haven't read too much about it on the forums, but the general consensus is that people love this brand (for Porsches/Mclarens, etc) so i'm looking forward to checking it out. I'll post with my feedback here in a week's time once the order is built/received.

I have the Comp pack so while the exhaust does sound a lot better in sport plus, I still think it could be louder. Hopefully, this will strike the right sound note i'm looking for!

I have it too, but paired with catless downpipes. Car sounds great IMO.
Please update us on your fitment, with pictures. Iím not happy with the fitment on mine. Made adjustments, but itís still not where I need it to be. Sometimes I feel like it rattles against my Diffuser when Iím driving.

I bought my M6 GC and it had the Soul performance exhaust. Cold starts are wild and overall for the price (vs the insane cost of some of the full systems) it sounds good. I had an AMG with a wild set-up prior today the M6 so I’m a bit bias as the AMG just sounded incredible. To my ear I will say the exhaust does have some drone at steady low RPM’s. That makes me hesitant to do cat-less DP’s honestly. I don’t do a lot of long trips but if I did the exhaust may not be ideal.

I’m sure I have a clip or two on my phone I can share if you DM me.

Iím curious how it sounds with catless downpipes! Does it drone? Did you code out cold starts as I bet itís loud!

Don't mean to thread jack but why do you guys buy this product when you can literally get the same results by going to an exhaust shop and getting a muffler delete and some tips for around $2-300? When I asked one of the sales reps about the difference he basically said that the only difference is the finish? Why not save yourself $900+ while getting the exact sound you want? It's not like they still give you control over your valves. Are the soul exhaust tips really that much better than what you get from eBay?? I'm not an exhaust expert or anything. I just did some research and am confused about why people are willingly getting finessed for a fancy muffler delete.

I feel you. The soul does have a small resonator pipe that helps reduce the bad droning you get with a simple muffler delete. I purchased because of the added resonator. I agree that itís a little expensive, but I think every aftermarket part for our vehicles are inflated.

Because of the fitment and of some research/testing done to get a better sound output (less droning) than a normal muffer delete. Happy to pay that premium for a quality product. I'll report back next week when the pipe gets in!
