I know a lot of people like Flowmaster. Maybe it's just me though, but to me their mufflers are just loud only. There's no performance sound to my ears.

I love the sound of a good Flow Master... Had one on every vehicle I have owned other than my Civic.

I have a forty series on my FJ now, sounds great for a V6!!

I put Flow Master American Thunders on my last 2 cars and my Denali. Very deep rumble! The wife hated them, needless to say I loved them.

I agree with your statement .. although when I was younger I didn't .. .... I just don't like the flowmaster sound any more .. it is all personal preference though.

I had Flowmaster Super 40's on my 06 GTO. Sound was awesome. For those of you that think you lose power with Flowmasters, well I gained, proven on dyno before and after. All I did was a muffler swap with the originals. Under $175 installed.

I had two Flowmasters on my '95; a 2-chamber and a Single-chamber with Delta Flow. I can't say I liked the sound the higher the engine was in the powerband; it just got all muddy. I'm sure it was just the Y-pipe/I-pipe arrangement, but they do sound good on Mustangs. Too noisy for me now though. I'll stick with Borla and Magnaflow. I'm eager to hear what they sound like on Camaro though. If they offered their popular mufflers in stainless steel, I'd consider them more, but I've had a pair rust-up on my dad's truck, and they only had about 50K miles on them and we don't like on the coast or in the mountains. Hey - I'm open to options though

Of course you are going to gain power. You swapped them out with stock. To make the amount of sound and resonance they are so famous for, it takes alot of internal channels/passages in those chambers. Which equals restriction. Cut one open, see what I mean.

She probably jumped up thinking someone was stealing the Camaro you haven't gotten yet!

I put a Super 40 on my old lady's GMC Sierra... it has the larger V8 with AFM.

It sounds good. It's pretty mellow though. Sounds good when you step on it. Isn't too loud at idle. But it sounds considerably different than it would on a classic car.

I have dual Super 40's on my 77 Silverado with a 350 V8. The exhaust on my truck has a lot more presence... it's good and loud... obnoxious... sets off car alarms down my street.......... and if I'm driving in a concrete parking garage, you can just forget it! haha Cars chirp left and right.

QUESTION

When is Flowmaster going to make an Axle-Back Kit? That's all I'd want on my aftermarket exhaust.... maybe headers.

One option for those who like the sound but doesn't want to give up performance...Add a cutout before the mufflers (after the X pipe), this way you avoid any restriction caused by the mufflers, yet when they are closed to retain the classic flowmaster sound.
Just a thought...

warranty question

I have watched the video on flowmaster's hushpower pro installation on the new camaro. I really like it but was wondering if it would void the warranty on the car? Does anyone know if it will or not?

Just make sure "cutouts" are legal in your State first!

They are a No No in a lot of them!
