From what I understand about exhaust (which isnt much lol) I would think that would make 2 different tones in exhaust sound. Maybe you could get a similar muffler with one inlet and two outlet??

The exhaust will primarily go the path of least resistance, ie, the side without the bend/muffler.

The reason borla has the exhaust like that is because it's "adjustable"-it has plates the owners can put in (on the passenger side tail pipe)

This is so the owner can choose between a quieter tone that goes completely through the muffler, or a straight pipe setup with just changing out a plate, or they can add a little resistance with another plate (with a small hole in it) to have an "in-between" sound.

Also, borla is directly compatible with QTP electric cutouts. An owner can put in an electric cutout in the passenger side tail pipe (bolts right in) and from the flip off a switch inside the car, you can go from completely quiet/muffled to straight-pipe in seconds.

So, unless you go the electric cutout route, it'd be a waste of time IMO to not just go with a complete muffler setup.

I think that they are going for the chord effect that you get when playing two or more notes that compliment each other at the same time.

harmonic resonance. If the two aren't in tune they will sound as horrible as a non autotuned Katy Perry!

Your not going to sound the way a Camaro sounds. Thats just a fact. It is an LS motor but its a truck motor. If you want that sound just get an electric cutout from the axle back..best bang for the buck..
and will do what your asking basically.
