"Best" is subjective. To each his own.

I love the way the Larini exhaust sounds, especially with de-cat. It sure screams on the second cam!

I also like how the Von Hep sounds from the sound clips I've heard.

yup. they create senseless threads about topics that have no answers. not this time. not the last time it was asked. and certainly not the 50 or 60 times previously. my answer is as good as any others that will be posted in this thread.

thanks for getting it.

oh and one more thing...

nobody knows what car the OP has.
what their budget it.
whether they're willing to remove the rear panel.
if theyre going to keep the cat.
nor what in the heck the "best sound" means.

but go ahead... answer away.

I took a digital signal processing class from a professor who was developing an active noise cancelling "muffler" as a side business. The goal was to be nearly silent while have nearly zero back pressure.

Now, IMO, that would "sound" good.

Arqray is loudest and highest - 2bular Ultra is loudest with a lower tone.
Like I said, mine (2bular Ultra).

The Von Hep is loud and low,with an emphasis on LOUD.

The stock muffler sounds the best. Up to 6k rpms, you can hear your radio, the cops behind you, your spouse talk, the breeze in the trees. You know, some of these reasons I bought a convertible.

At 6k rpms, it is pretty loud, so I only hit the second cam at the track, or out in the desert, where it won't bother people who are in their cars, trying to hear the radio, the cops behind them, their spouse, or the breeze in the trees.

I might also still be able to hear these things when I am 40.
