Putting on just one muffler?

Okay so I have a 2011 gt cs. I want an exhaust that's not loud at all but a bit louder than stock. I was thinking of keeping one stock muffler and one roush axle back muffler. Anyone ever tried this? Sounds stupid but do you think it will work? Just for a bit louder than stock sound.

The tone would be terrible and your pipes wouldn't match. Otherwise a good idea.

Sorry bud, it does sound silly... It's like wearing 1 Nike and a Reebok... Plus exhausts are sold in pairs... Solution to your problem is GT500s, they're not loud at all, they're perfect for your situation

Exactly what I was going to suggest.

Gt500s are probably the quietest axlebacks ive heard. Another option would be to delete the resonators and keep the stock mufflers. That will probably get you a bit more sound, but I've heard it doesn't sound all that good.

No!! I heard them, its basically the same stock tone with added snap, crackle, pop, burp, fart, poop, etc... I think the OP is better off leaving it stock... He will get crucified on the street if he changes only 1 muffler

They are not loud compared to everything, and I mean, everything else. They have a fantastic tone that makes the car sound like a Bullitt soundtrack playing at a modest volume in the background. I roll the windows down and listen, all the time; it's immensely satisfying.

Even one Roush muffler + one stocker, I'd venture, would be louder and more obnoxious than the GT500s as a pair.

The only complaint people have with GT500s is some find them too quiet. Nobody complains about the sound, just the volume. That's an easy fix, via whipping the resos out or putting in a off road pipes, etc. whereas you can't quiet down mufflers that's too loud.

I read about one guy who drilled some holes in the over axle pipes, just ahead of the mufflers, to create more sound. Now that's really cheap!
