Re: copy modern Camaro/Mustang sound.

I think the old big block and small block Chevys sound best with straight duals no X or H pipe and Corvair Turbo mufflers (Dynomax Super Turbo mufflers)..

Todays performance cars sound like there missing with rusted out mufflers..

Re: copy modern Camaro/Mustang sound.

When I was selling large emergency generator sets we used vendors to provide the exhaust systems. The large ones used 20” diameter pipe and 2” inlet/outlet mufflers.
They would calculate not only the effectiveness of the mufflers but each bend or length of pipe in the system also contributed to what they would refer to as the “tortured path”. Every flex pipe, elbow, “wye” pipe, catalyst, particulate filter, etc, contributed to the sound reduction and tone. So did the final orientation to the receptor (soon to be pissed off neighbor).
I’m sure automotive engineers take this to levels of science my vendors never dreamt of.

Borla is what I hear most often when asking about exhaust on the newer cars. Having a look under a few of them may yield some more info for you. As others have stated, there's probably a lot more science in the exhaust design than just a set of headers and 3" pipes. Not sure if all these cars run true dual or not. For a while there the modern cars seem to run large single dual in/out mufflers which sounds nothing like the classic muscle we are used to.

It a not bad sound but definitely not for me. Sounds like a "gargling" sort of snarl.

Re: copy modern Camaro/Mustang sound.

Yes, late Mustangs sound amazing. I love the stock sound on my 08 Bullitt, never moded it.

Got a 19 GT vert yesterday with the Coyote and the quad tips, but not the active exhaust. Also sounds wonderful.

Smaller engines but much higher compression than a late 60s anything.

My 66 has Flowmaster 40s and sounds pretty nice. Have one 79 5.0 with classic flow 40s and tailpipes. One of the worlds best sounds.

A Fox body 5.0 with Flowmaster 40's IS one of the automotive world's best sounds!!
