MISHA MANSOOR & THE PORSCHE 991.2 GT3 TOURING
What brand can say they have two members of the same progressive metal band on their team? We can.
Meet Misha Mansoor, best knows as the founder and one of three guitarists in the band, Periphery. Misha likes Porsches almost as much as he likes Periphery. Once his bandmate and drummer, Matt Halpern gave Misha a taste of the Best Sounding Exhaust on the Planet™ from his Trackhawk Misha knew what needed to be done. To be fair, so did we.
Misha's a proud (fanatical) owner of a Miami blue 991.2 GT3 Touring, and we know what GT3 owners like -- ripping it to redline and listening to the flat-6 sing its song but also having the ability to keep the beast caged when needed. Just because the GT3 Touring resides in a more discreet camp than its GT3 counterparts doesn't mean it can't sound like it eats asphalt on the track for pleasure while adding power, shedding weight, and keeping exhaust valves in place.
Cue AWE dealer and all-around ace premier motorsport specialists, TAG Motorsports, and one-and-only AWE SwitchPath™ Exhaust. The three parties teamed up to properly pipe Misha's GT3.
“The AWE Switchpath really seems to have unleashed the beast of the engine that is the 4.0L Flat 6 in my GT3 Touring. I have to admit, knowing how it sounds now, it’s almost a shame the car doesn’t come with this exhaust as standard. It not only drastically opens up and improves the sound of the car, but also dynamically assists by reducing weight and adding a slight power bump. Win-win all around, what more could you ask for?”
Strap in with Misha as he takes you on a three-part video series to share his story with the GT3, TAG, and the SwitchPath™ Exhaust.
