RPI Sound, who comes close?

I know I'm late to the game but I've found some RPI sound clips and love that sound. The "more cowbell" thread has me looking at exhaust systems so I was wondering who comes the closest to that sound these days?

This is the one that got me hooked. It takes the nasally sound out of the stock exhaust.



BTW that was a dramatic improvement on the 2.4L

It's certainly the best, and with a better flywheel it gets a nice mean sounding tone. The magnaflow is a little softer, less raspy and resonated. Glad I got a RPi when I could.

In my Mustang days the rage was a Bassani X pipe (in place of the std "H" design crossover tube) and Magnaflow mufflers

I'm getting the notion of SOLO Street Race with resonators where the tailpipes connect together at that band clamp


Soften up the sound some. Maybe make it a bit "refined" if you will. Maybe SOLO has tried it??

Maybe even get Kookie with some Kooks
