That is a really cool sound. Gotta love a vette with an open exhaust. Obviously to appeal to a certain crowd but they sound so quite stock, open those vettes up grandpas!

Huh? I currently own GM & Ford and have driven various other vehicles. I even said in a previous post that if you want the best sound, there are other options. I don't have brand loyalty. You are looking for something that isn't there.

Nope, not looking for anything at all. Your note seemed to insinuate that I was brand loyal to GM and he was loyal to Ford. I can't speak about him but I know I've had lot's of different makes as well, including the ones in question here. It's all good.

For what it's worth another sweet sounding engine is the Wright R-2600.

I need to open my Coyote up but as far as sound goes I love a fox car with an off-road H and flows next up would be the SN95/New Edge cars in the same configuration. In both the fox and the later SN95/New Edge the muffler placement was perfect.


The S-197 cars though require something different. I've never liked the sound of an S-197 with an H-pipe and chambered mufflers. They sound much better with an X pipe and a more traditional muffler or straight through perforated core with the placement of the muffler in the rear.


The same with the S550, its rear muffler placement also favors and X pipe and traditional or straight through muffler over an H and chambered muffler.


My favorite for the new car right now is the Corsa Extreme with double X.

I get crazy compliments on how good my 14 GT with Gt500 axle backs sound lol. I don't understand why some people say they don't like the Coyote sound. Personally I think above 5K rpm the DOHC V8's sound way better because they absolutely f%^king screeeeem hahaha!!! The best sounding V8 is and always will be a HEMI!

Bingo. What I currently have, hence my earlier statement above... folks who don't think the Coyote sounds good, haven't heard a Corsa Extreme setup, paired with x pipe, intake, and blower.

With so many different possible configurations in exhaust, intakes, manifolds, headers, this is pretty goal less topic, unless we compare engine sound from all stock cars, theres too many variables to determine what sounds the best.
personally for all stock sounding car, Hellcat is my favorite, the supercharger scream is so perfect, if I was to supercharge would make sure it would have to sound very similar to the hellcats whine.

Just my opinion of course, yours may vary with mileage and taste!

Sorry for reviving a dead thread, but as I was googling a specific set up for my 14 GT, I came across this thread and I have to disagree. From 2010 to 2015, the Camaro SS automatic came with a 400 hp L99. The manual version came with an LS3 rated at 426 hp. Stock for stock against the manual, it's a drivers race. The 5.0 should have no problem against the automatic stock for stock. I have driven a 2014 Camaro SS and don't give me wrong I really liked it, but it's not beating the 5.0. Now the 2016 and 2017 Camaro SS, both automatic and manual come with 450 horse power LS3

1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1

390 ci engine, high compression motor, high lift cam, long tube headers and cherry bomb mufflers. Music to my ears.

Too bad I totaled my beast in a drag race at 16. Haven't found one like her yet.
My first car, but not my last Stang - getting a 2017 soon !

My 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 looked just like this one.

This thread is music to my ears. There is no best sounding IMO. They all sound so awesome. I guarantee whip lash just for hearing any one of these go down the street.

Also, I find the side pipes undesirable on long highway drives. After a certain point, it starts to sound like you are driving down the highway with an exhaust leak (which basically, you are).
I agree.....its always a trade off , but I prefer the 2003-04 4.6/4V......the new cars just have too much technology for me......2004 Mach 1 / Cobra terminator & our 2007 Honda Accord / V-6 back up....

Fords flatplane engine in the GT 350 is the best sounding, with my 3v 4.6l a close second
