We test 8 of Flowmasters most popular mufflers for street cars to muscle cars to full blown race cars! From mild to aggressive, find out which muffler is right for your car and get that classic Flowmaster sound.
Flowmasters Laminar Flow Technology
Flowmaster Laminar Flow Technology Explained:
Hot Exhaust gases entering the tapered
inlet section are actually accelerated as they pass through the perforated
cone into the outer core area. The perforation pattern and entry angle are
into each product to provide optimum airflow characteristics. The sound
energy is reflected and redirected
back into itself as well as into the outer thermal core by the carefully
selected taper angle of the entry cone.
2.Laminar Flow Area
The hot Exhaust gases are released and
allowed to expand into this section in multiple layers due to the tapered
angle of the entry cone. This produces a controlled laminar flow pattern
that reduces turbulence inside the muffler. Sound waves lose energy in this
section through the expansion of the Exhaust gases and reflective angles of the
cones, which direct the waves into the thermal barrier material.
The thermal barrier between the outer core section and the muffler case
provides a portion of the mufflers sound energy absorption characteristics.
This thermal barrier is engineered to deliver much lower exterior case
temperatures, allowing the muffler to be placed closer to heat sensitive
The increased surface area and angle of the tapered exit cone provide an
"easy exit" for the hot Exhaust gases
that encourages the flow out of the muffler. The carefully selected
taper angle of the exit cone directs and focuses the sound energy back into
itself. This convergence of sound waves reduces the sound level as it
passes out of the muffler.

Flowmaster Racing Mufflers / Silencers Explained
Racetracks the world over face increasing scrutiny for sound emanations,
causing many to simply close their gates, while other run drastically
reduced schedules. Properly equipped race vehicles enable tracks to remain
open, and can make the difference between racing and going back home for
Flowmaster has many solutions to control excess sound from almost any type
of race car anywhere in the world with our Delta Flow and Laminar Flow
Technologies, together with our Cool Shell Technology. These silencer
designs offer significantly lower sound levels when compared to open
headers or un-silenced engines and in many years of dynamometer and track
testing, Flowmaster's race silencers most often provide performance
increases over open-Exhaust, as well.

Performance Muffler Upgrades [S2 Ep. 4-4]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start
discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into
speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a
V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that
speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part
garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what
GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this
show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of
mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help
you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers
on your machine!
Mustang GT Flowmaster Super 44 Exhaust (inside)
just what the title and video say... its a 2000 Mustang GT with Flowmaster Super 44
mufflers, a Jegs o/r h-pipe, and 4" tips. The mufflers have about 500-1000
miles on them, so not quite broke in yet. Please don't comment my vid if
your trying to diss my car or Exhaust,
or tell me im shifting wrong cause im not. there's no need to shift fast
when ur driving normal.. and don't tell me i need to learn how to
powershift when i got on the highway.. im not into racing so there's no
need for me to learn. when i make $100,000 a year and can afford a new
clutch, transmission, whatever, then ill learn. sorry for my rant.. thanks

426 Hemi in a '55 Chevy! Roadkill Episode 8
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan
hit the road on a quest to build a car they've both dreamed of for years: a
'55 Chevy Bel Air sedan set up like a '60s Gasser and powered by a Mopar
426 Hemi. The guys drag out a '73 GMC Suburban that they'd never driven
more than around the block (did you expect anything else?), then use it to
pick up a bare '55 Chevy body in California before heading north for the
1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon. That's the home of Jim Meyer
Racing, the chassis builder that helps the guys turn the '55 into a wicked
looking hot rod in a single day. There's no fail in this episode of
Roadkill! Well, at least nothing terminal.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
