I've spent some time thinking about this very thing. What causes the raspy sound in our exhaust? Well back when cars had frames, the mufflers were located under the passenger compartment right between the front and rear seats. This distance from the muffler to the back of the car (several feet) gave the high pitch sounds time to die out. With the mufflers right at the exit of our cars, there is no time for this to take place. Proper tuning of the muffler baffels would help (take a look at JRE'S Dynoteck video for a good example) would help. I have some theries regarding some type of additions to the exhaust that should help, but reserve comment to the specifics until they are tried.
