Flowmaster Mufflers- Keeping Everything Smooth While On the Roads


									If a radio gets too loud, you turn the volume down. If your car's engine gets too noisy,
you can get a muffler. It's as simple as that.

Humans are naturally born to be noise-intolerant. Those who were born many years
before had to endure the excruciating noise just to have the experience of having a car.

The word "muffle"means to wrap with something to deaden or prevent sound. Taking
from this meaning alone, a muffler is designed to reduce the engine's emission and
noise. It works as the exhaust system of the engine.

In the inside, a muffler is consist of several tubes with holes in them. It may seem to
look like it's that simple but the process underneath is much more complicated. These
tubes are designed to create reflected waves that interfere with each other or cancel
each other out. The exhaust gases and the sound waves enter through the center tube.
They bounce off the back wall of the muffler and are reflected through a hole into the
main body of the muffler. They pass through a set of holes into another chamber,
where they turn and go out the last pipe and leave the muffler.

Aside from this, there are also other ways in which the muffler car reduce the engine's
noise. One is that the body of the muffler is consist of three layers, two of which are
thin metal layers with a thicker slightly insulated layer between them. These layers
allow the body of the muffler to absorb some of the pressure pulses. Another one is
that the pipes going to the main chambers have holes that allows tiny pressure pulses
to bounce around and cancel each other out in the main chamber.

Flowmaster, the world's leading maker of mufflers, was founded by Ray T. Flugger
about 40 years ago. The goal of its founder was to produce the best technologically
advanced performance exhaust products in the world. Today, people at Flowmaster
are known for their achievements in product performance through continuous product

How is a Flowmaster Muffler different from other mufflers? Flowmaster offers its
own patented Performance Technology that results in your engines improved power
and improved fuel economy. Flowmaster mufflers achieve this by using pressure and
sound energy released from an engine's combustion chamber to pull spent gases out of
each cylinder resulting also to a more efficient charge of unburned fuel and air to fill
the cylinder in the next cycle.

Flowmaster Mufflers also produce a unique sound, which is distinct from other
mufflers. This is because of Flowmaster's Noise Cancellaton System where exhaust
sound energy is split and directed through slightly two different parts and later on
become out of phase, therefore creating noise cancellation. And from there results the
famous Flowmaster sound.

If you are getting a Flowmaster muffler, certain advantages are guaranteed for you.
With its noise cancellation system, you are sure that your "packing material" will
deteriorate or get louder in just a few months. Flowmaster's unique "H-Chamber"
design helps control internal resonance inside the cab area of your vehicle while
"straight-through" cannot. Flowmaster only uses fully welded construction to give
your muffler added durability and strength even when it's installed on high
horsepower engines.

So what conclusion can we get from this? Flowmaster is muffler, muffler is
Flowmaster. It's as simple as that.
