Flowmaster, the masters of performance mufflers and exhaust systems since 30 years, have decided to also offer street legal, high quality, replacement catalytic converters to the market. The catalytic converters are engineered for long life and reliable performance. When you install a Flowmaster Catalytic Converter you avoid the irritation that low quality converters can cause by frequently lighting up the MIL symbol on your dash, requiring equally frequent service appointments to check the codes and make the relevant adjustments. The Flowmaster converters are engineered and built in the U.S.A., using only first grade materials, to the high quality standard required to get the Flowmaster trademark stamped into the casing.

The outer shells are made in stainless steel of the highest automotive grade. The interiors of the converters feature strata that carry catalytic substrates with high loads of noble metals, making sure that the converters perform to exceed the USEPA standards. The strata themselves are of OEM or higher quality, ensuring that they last and can endure the vibrations and stress even in hard driving conditions. As Flowmaster is the master of gas flow, you can also rest assured that the exhaust gases flow through the converters with minimum possible restrictions for maximum possible performance. If and when you need to replace your catalytic converter, get a converter with the Flowmaster stamp. There is no better.

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.

This warranty shall not apply to normal wear, cosmetic issues such as coatings and material discoloration, any product that was installed on a racing vehicle, installed improperly or contrary to Flowmaster instructions, altered, misused, repaired, damaged from an accident, collision, undercarriage road impact or debris, or willful or negligent act.

The warranty set forth herein for Flowmaster® stainless steel mufflers, stainless steel exhaust systems, stainless steel pipes and other stainless steel exhaust accessories (except exhaust tips) extends for a period of the life of the original vehicle the product was installed on. The warranty set forth herein for Flowmaster aluminized steel mufflers, aluminized steel exhaust systems, aluminized steel pipes, all exhaust tips and non-race exhaust accessories and commercial applications of aluminized steel products or stainless steel products extends for a period of three (3) years from the date of original purchase and the original vehicle it was installed on. The warranty set forth herein for Flowmaster exhaust headers extends for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase and the original vehicle it was installed on. Header warranty does not cover damages caused by exhaust insulating wrap, and is void if the product was installed on a new or rebuilt engine during the initial break-in period.

To make any claim under the terms of this limited warranty, the original purchaser MUST either return the product to the original retailer or directly to Flowmaster. If the original purchaser elects to return the product to Flowmaster directly, he or she must first contact Flowmaster and obtain a Returned Material Authorization (RMA) number.

The Proof of Purchase must clearly show the place of purchase, purchase price, product purchased, and date of purchase. If upon inspection by Flowmaster the product is found to be defective in material or workmanship, Flowmaster shall at its option, either exchange the product for new product with the same part number or refund the original purchase price.

This warranty is not contingent upon the purchaser’s completion of the Warranty Registration Form found on the Flowmaster® website. If however the purchaser completes and submits that form at the time of purchase, Flowmaster will keep that form on file which may serve as an aid in determining warranty coverage in the event of the loss of the original purchase receipt.

Flowmaster’s liability is expressly limited to the replacement of the product or refund of the purchase price as described herein. Flowmaster® shall have no liability for the cost of installation or removal of the defective product, the cost of labor or any additional parts required to complete the installation of the replacement product, towing or transportation costs, or return shipping costs.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights.
