Born On The Track – Flowmaster Mufflers

Flowmaster Mufflers is a name that has been around for a long time, and it’s well known. What you probably didn’t know is how or where they got their start. Flowmaster got their start on the track, specifically on the dirt tracks.

Even to this day, they haven’t forgotten their roots and continue to evolve to help out the people racing their mufflers. They focus on improving horsepower and reducing noise on the track, then tweak that technology to work on street applications. Their exhaust technology has even been adapted for use on Apache helicopters, who wanted a muffler to complete stealth operations but not choke down the horsepower.

The cars were tested using Flowmaster mufflers, which brought the DB’s down enough to pass inspection, and bring a whole series to the track. The racers love them as well, since they are quiet enough for them to race with, yet don’t rob horsepower.

Born out of necessity, Flowmaster has grown into one of the biggest in the exhaust world. Even with their large size, they aren’t afraid to go back to their roots to remind themselves of where they came from and for further innovation. If the exhaust works for top racers all over the world, then it will work great for your ride too. The best part is that everything is made in the USA as well!
