Flowmaster American Thunder Exhaust Systems add a signature growl that's best described as the "Flowmaster Sound" - A muscular, throaty rumble that announces your engine's presence. Flowmaster is the true tone of classic American muscle and performance.
For the Mustang owner looking for a complete cat-back dual exhaust system with an aggressive tone. With easy fit in mind, these American Thunder systems from Flowmaster are mandrel bent for maximum performance and include specially selected mufflers. American Thunder systems deliver a moderate to aggressive interior and exterior tone and are suited to the Mustang enthusiast who wants their performance to be heard. Like all Flowmaster systems, the American Thunder benefits include improved throttle response, power and mileage. Designed for an easy fit, these Mustang exhaust systems include all necessary parts and hardware for easy installation.
Since Flowmaster mufflers use sound energy cancellation technology, you don't have to worry about "packing material" deteriorating and getting louder after as little as a few months. The interior case volume of the inside of a Flowmaster muffler is far superior to that of a "straight-pipe" or "straight-through" muffler design. Imagine filling a "straight-pipe" or "straight-through" muffler with water vs. filling a Flowmaster muffler with water. Which one do think would hold substantially more volume? The deflector in a Flowmaster muffler acts as a one way check valve eliminating reversion back to the engine and creates a low pressure area to help scavenge the exhaust. Flowmasters unique style of H-Chamber designs help control interior resonance inside the cab area of your Mustang. "Straight-through" muffler designs cannot. Flowmasters use fully welded construction for added strength and durability to last even when installed on high horsepower engines.

Bought this Cat-Back as part of a total exhaust overhaul, BBK long tubes and BBK catted H-Pipe as well. Probably deserves 5 stars as it bolted right up, adjusted into position and sounds just like a set of Flowmasters, but I have an unrealistic expectation. This set up gives a noticeable growl at start up, a quiet rumble at idle and really opens up at full throttle. The only downside is a strong resonance under load between 2,000-2,800 RPM. This wouldn't be that bad, but it's between 55-65 MPH with my stock gears and that's where I spend most of my commute. Potential solution: Sub box and some sound deadening in the trunk is next.
Flowmaster - The Exhaust Technology Company Flowmaster operates the only exhaust Research & Design facilities of its kind in the world, centered around the SuperFlow SF-7100 engine dynamometer complete with E.C.A. (engine cycle analysis) equipment and also SuperFlow chassis dyno's.
Through use of these dyno's, Flowmaster's engineering staff can track the complete engine cycle in millionths of a second and can obtain exact technical data of each degree of cam rotation, from induction to the tip of the exhaust system, while also showing the power numbers that really matter, the power numbers "to the ground."
Flowmaster also utilizes Spectrum Analyzers to fine "tune" the sound of each of the eleven different series of mufflers that Flowmaster currently offers, both for peak performance and just the right sound levels and tones. Flowmaster's dedication to quality is what makes them the exhaust industry leader for Latemodel Mustangs and SVT Lightnings!
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
