All Flowmaster exhaust systems give the same improvement of performance. All Flowmaster exhaust systems produce a beautiful deep performance tone. Choosing between the five different exhaust systems is not a technical decision – it is all up to your personal taste. It’s A Sound Decision™. The racing origin is evident in every Flowmaster exhaust system. All the five series of systems are tuned for maximum performance. They differ in technology and tuning, and thus in tone and character, giving you a performance engine sound to your personal liking.
Flowmaster exhaust systems employ two unique technologies, the patented Delta Flow and the Laminar Flow. They give different characters of sound and can be tuned to achieve the desired exhaust note. Flowmaster Exhaust System Technology is so versatile and gives such a high degree of control that it is used both by racers, who want maximum power, and by the U.S. Air Force in Stealth applications, where maximum silence and minimum heat emissions are prime considerations.
Be it for a domestic or import truck, SUV, off-road warrior, daily driver, muscle car, euro-spec cruiser or sport compact vehicle, Flowmaster technicians personally hand select the right muffler, tubing size, resonator, and tip to make the process easy for you. Best of all, Flowmaster stainless steel exhaust systems are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty; ensuring that your exhaust will last as long as you own your vehicle. If you choose aluminized steel products, Flowmaster backs them up with a 3-year warranty.639.99Brand: Flowmaster Part Number: 817429 UPC: 700042023585
Flowmaster® has its roots in solving the engine noise problems encountered by California racers in the 1980s. In 1983 Flowmaster’s founder, Ray Flugger, created his first patented design of racing silencers, which dampened noise with minimal loss of power. Ray attached handles to ease carrying the square shaped race mufflers through the race pits, and the mufflers became known as the "suitcase mufflers." Today, the innovative Flowmaster mufflers are the result of years of development with top race engine builders, thousands of hours of dyno research and "real-world" on-track testing.Product Reviews (10)Flowmaster® 817429 - American Thunder™ Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System - Dual Rear / Side Exit (Moderate Sound)Average Rating: 4.5 of 5APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(4.5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITY(4.5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYFlowmaster Exhaust2004 Dodge Ram

Looks and sounds good. Installed with ease, the hardest part was removing the old exhaust from the cat. Had to upgrade the clamps, the clamps supplied with the kit were too small. I welded the exhaust as recommended by Flowmaster. Put the dual exhaust on my Dodge Ram, Hemi runs and sounds great.Was this review helpful for you?

Shipping was on time with what I was Quoted. The directions that came with the system were good. Had one problem with the spacer between the cat and the Flowmaster muffler. The down size was wrong. We made a small adjustment and modification to make it work. The quality and sound is great.Was this review helpful for you?

This muffler is a true direct fit and is very easy to install. It has 3 chambers so it is not the most aggressive Flowmaster but it does sounds aggressive under heavy acceleration. It is quiet however at low RPM. My only issue is when the HEMI is on 4 cyl mode, there is a very noticeable drone sound. As for increase in performance, it is noticeable instantly. There is definitely an increase of torque throughout the power band. Accelerations are much better now.Was this review helpful for you?

The Flowmaster exhaust sounds great on my truck, it gives the aggressive sound, and it was very easy to install too. It took me about 1hr to complete it. My 2012 Dodge Ram Rt sounds great, with it I get more mpg.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(4)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYFlowmaster 50 Series Muffler.2007 Dodge Ram

The customer service and product quality are both everything that I expected. However, I did have some difficulty with fitment. In my situation, it was not a simple plug and play situation. That's where my local muffler shop got involved. Other than that, I love the products and will continue to shop here.Was this review helpful for you?

Product was received in a timely manner and was exactly as advertised. Installation was even easier than stock, as the left side tail pipe is designed in 2 pieces as opposed to the 1 piece factory pipe. This made it simple to install over and around the axle and spare tire. I did this installation on my garage floor without the use of a hoist and had it completed in about an hour.Was this review helpful for you?

System fits well, although the extension pipe from the converter to the muffler is not long enough and I had to buy a piece of pipe and a reducer to complete the installation. Also the add described the system being stainless steel, rather aluminized pipes.Was this review helpful for you?

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 8 cyl. 4.7L Engine Truck and with the help of CARiD.com, I have transformed this truck into a top of the line Muscle Truck. I purchased this Flowmaster American Thunder Kit and teamed it up with AirAid 301-232 Cold Air Dam Intake System, also purchased from CARiD.com and my truck sounds identical to a Ford Shelby and/or the Cobra. There is a tiny bit of gas mpg increase but the torque and horsepower increased by a lot; very noticeable and the two products combined, make an awesome sound. I recommend the purchase; I'm very pleased.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo
