LAS VEGAS, NV. Our muffler needs are specific.

Muscle cars. Race cars. Diesel applications. Sport compact. Daily drivers. Tow vehicles. Classic hot rods.

No matter what we’re driving, there’s an optimum performance muffler design for each vehicle type and use.

At the 2015 SEMA show, Alex Ortega, Flowmaster’s vice president of sales, walked us through several Flowmaster muffler designs to help us better understand what mufflers we want, and why.

Watch the video and listen to Ortega detail the attributes of aggressive-, moderate-, and factory-sounding Flowmaster mufflers.

It’s great information for anyone interested in advice on selecting the right muffler.
