Performance Muffler Upgrades [S2 Ep. 4-4]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers on your machine!
Mustang Exhaust Shoot-Out - Dynomax VT vs. Flowmaster 40 Series Mufflers
This video compares five Exhaust set-ups on my 1966 Ford Mustang, including open Exhaust, Dynomax VT mufflers with/without tailpipes, and Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers with/without tailpipes. The car has a stroked 302 with 10.2:1 compression, a solid roller cam, and aluminum heads. This car is a weekend driver, not a daily driver. I've been struggling to decide which mufflers sound best, so I welcome your honest feedback!

Flowmaster Super 40 vs Super 44?
This is my Silverado. I am debating installing the Super 40's or the Super 44's. What do you think?
The engine is a 86-95 350ci block, four bolt mains, roller cam. Bored .040"
ZZ4 rotating assembly, Speed Pro H345NCP-40 pistons
10.7:1 static compression, .032" Quench/Squish height.

Comp XR276HR-10 cam, 1.52 rockers.
Air-Gap dual plane, 1" four hole tapered spacer, Mighty Demon 750cfm annular Boosters.
MSD ignition, Summit dist dialed in for 36 degrees @ 3000rpm. 18 degrees initial. +12 vacuum advance on manifold vacuum.
borla vs magnaflow .m4v
New borla catback for my sra swap on 03 cobra.
Exhaust is stock manifolds, o/r X (unsure of brand) and GT "s type" Exhaust.
2nd part of video Exhaust is stock manifolds, o/r X, and magnaflow IRS kit.
The borla is noticebly louder in person at idle and at higher rpms. The sound of the magnaflow on video actually sounds more wide open, though it was quite a bit quieter.
Porter Mufflers on a Flathead Ford
Porter Mufflers on a 1948 Ford Flathead. www.portermufflers.com Nice sound, excellent quality. Made in the USA. The system we had to build was complex because of the air ride system on the car, but it has plenty of ground clearance and sounds great.
