Worst sounding muffler

I was at a stop light on my way home from work when I heard the most God awful sound I had ever heard from a car. At first I thought someone had lost their exhaust system, but when I looked over it was a red 2010 or 11 Camaro.

I've heard just about every exhaust system in the youtube bites but nothing like this. Has anyone else ran into a "should have left it stock" exhaust system?

List your least favorite exhaust.

I dont like stock for sure, but running open cut-out's on the street is not on my list of favorites and neither is SLP's loudmouth.

I remember hearing a mustang on campus of Michigan State University.

I suppose the sound might be good for some, but I really thought I was listening to my garbage disposal running at home.

Not many Camaro's near me but the ones I've heard are running stock exhausts. I tend to dislike anything once the cats have been removed. It just becomes "busy" and "harsh"...

I really wish I could get it to sound like my old 3rd gen w/ flowmasters. That is what I miss most from the old car.

ARH header and either the Borla S or ATAK will sound better.

You could always get the ARH headers with some glass packs. That brings back memories

When I was modifying may camaro, I tried the Flowmasters series 44 Muflers, They would resonate at about 35 to 40 MPH. The resonance was so loud that if you had fillings in your Teeth, they would have come loose, I got rid of those Mufflers fast.

Before I ordered my 2002 SS back in '02, I drove one with the SLP Loudmouth and you are so RIGHT. At 80 mph, all I could hear was the droning rumble and not the stereo. Needless to say, I ordered my SS and did not buy the one with the Loudmouth.

I've heard some really sweet exhaust systems and some really horrendous sounding ones. When I was a teenager I had glass packs on my '67 Camaro and loved it. My '99 Camaro was all stock and I loved the sound of it.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder so I suppose that applies to the ears as well.
