question... why does everyone hate on flowmaster? they sound sick, they make your v8 sound like a classic v8 should, and they are cheap...

Is flowmaster really that bad for performance? or is this another case of "i just bought the priciest exhaust on the market and i need to talk trash about all the cheaper stuff 'cause im jealous that it makes the same power but cost about 100000 bones more"

The reason for me is that it lost its good sound on my 4th gen, probably due to rusting. Stainless Steel would cure this but if it is still designed the same way it will not make the power a straight through system will. I saw 10rwhp and almost 15rwtq on my 4th gen a long time ago just switching from a 80 series flowmaster to a Hooker muffler. They do sound good but have thier drawbacks too.

Did anyone here get the DELTA FLOW 40 Flowmaster Series Muffler for the SS Camaro?

I've used them for my last two vehicles and I'm running true duals with them right now but i have a 4.7l and love them for a total of 5 mufflers (Long Story) but i dont know how they would sound with a 6.2L LS3.

I've been ordering mine from Delray Beach Muffler House here in Florida for like $64.00 Each or something like that if i remember correctly. It's the BEST Price that I've ever seen, I'd have to check the receipt again but i believe that was the price that I paid the last time I ordered them and I always get them from there.

My Build Date is the 10th or 11th of Jan or I need to make up my mind soon.

Thanks guys.

Jim

Since some people just want to sound fast, some people want real performance. Example below.

This is a 50 Series Delta Flow. Notice the resistance the exhaust gas has to flow through before it exits. This is why it is a chambered muffler. It provides excellent resonance at the expense of horsepower.

I got The Super 44 are AWESOME. You won't go wrong if you want real American sound. Some of the other mufflers sound like rice burners to me.

Remember... "Straight through" mufflers, known for the past 80 years as glasspacks, were designed decades before high-performance engines existed; when a 300 cubic-inch, 6- or 8-cylinder engine had about 4:1 compression and made about 25 HP. I guess this is what makes them such a high-performace design, right?

AFM doesn't make that much of a difference.

The modern engine sounds a little more mild......... if you're only gonna swap out the mufflers.

Had Flowmaster origional 40's on my 2003 Mustang Mach1 with a Bassani X-pipe that had competition metallic cats and it sounded amazing. Flow's belong on stangs

I'm going with the FlowMaster American Thunder catback system on my SS. From what I see they are a 3" stainless system for $800, that's good if you ask me. I've got the axle back system on my LT and they sound good and the butt dyno feels a little better ...

I believe it's the 40's ... The higher the number the less noise ...

The American Thunder uses the Classic 40's cans ...
