observation from listening to exhaust vids vs real life
Hey everyone, I recently bought a 1993 F150 and I've been listening to a lot of exhaust clips on YouTube which can get frustrating and it reminded me of when I was doing the same thing for my Mustang and I realized something. Maybe this will help you out when deciding on what something "sounds like". I remember hearing some GT500 muffler videos and thinking it sounded pretty loud but everyone was saying they are too quiet. Well, same thing w/ the F150 clips. I heard a couple that people say their exhaust is quiet when to me it sounded kinda loud. Here's the thing, if they put the mic,camcorder, go pro etc right behind to next to the tail pipe it's going to sound much louder than if you were standing 10 feet from it or if it was driving by. I know that seems obvious, but if you are watching exhaust videos and the exhaust itself it's hitting the mic, forget about it, no way that is a good representation of what it sounds like. I've learned to ONLY pay attention to the ones that are pretty far away from the mic or a drive by is even better.
Anyways, that's all and hopefully this helps someone out who's out there listening to exhaust videos trying to figure out what sounds best. Thanks for reading
