Flowmaster About

A HISTORY OF INNOVATIVE EXHAUST PRODUCTS

FlowmasterFlowmaster is committed to continually developing high quality, performance products that work with a wide variety of applications. Designed to meet the specific needs of street, race and utility vehicles, Flowmaster products share one common challenge: to improve internal combustion engine efficiency. For more than 28 years, Flowmaster has been the leader in advanced exhaust technology through their extensive commitment to research and development. Flowmaster learned early on that by understanding an engine's total operation, including the exhaust pressure pulses, sound waves and the heat energy they contain, the company could not only generate a terrific performance exhaust sound, but more importantly, increase combustion efficiency and improve both performance and fuel mileage. These elements are at the core of the company's success and how Flowmaster began the process of creating their innovative muffler and exhaust system designs.

The biggest news for Flowmaster is the dramatically increased line up of stainless steel products and systems - now backed by the limited lifetime warranty. This "stainless-clad" guarantee tells the world that Flowmaster is proud of their mufflers and systems and willing to stand behind them for the life of these advanced technology products.

Flowmaster is dedicated to its continued expansion of stainless steel product offering, including not only the 409S stainless used in the majority of systems, but an influx of new systems based on new model vehicles. Their new 304 stainless systems which utilize the 304 stainless steel are not only popular with sport compact owners but also with other fans of performance where exterior treatments are valued.

Rest assured, Flowmaster will continue to offer stainless steel systems that ensure performance enhancement and, most importantly, provide a great overall tone - that great Flowmaster tone that means performance. Flowmaster history is built on it!

FlowmasterFLOWMASTER TODAY

Today, Flowmaster continues to push the envelope of new exhaust product technology. Their laminar flow mufflers are a testament to the company's devotion toward solving new challenges and continuing its legacy of unique, efficient components. Currently, Flowmaster offers a wide variety of laminar flow design products for commercial and personally operated diesel and gasoline-powered trucks, muscle cars, street rods and most motorized devices.

To handle the increased need for stainless steel products and ensure great quality and excellent vehicle fitment, Flowmaster has consolidated their manufacturing into one location in Sacramento, California. This means all of the original building facilities in Santa Rosa and the laminar flow muffler manufacturing factory in Hayden, Idaho, have been moved to the slate-of-the-art plant. Having all of the products created in one place, from development of the tubing and casing fixtures for the muffler and system designs through to packaging and shipping helps make certain that Flowmaster products maintain their high quality and allows the company to quickly change to meet industry demands... a great thing for the suppliers and customers alike!
