Hello everyone...First post in a long time...My 71SS 454 will have a new exhaust system for next spring...But which one? My good friend has a Nova SS with a 383 stroker, and it sounds awsome...runs that way too...I thought it was a big block the first time I heard it..I want that sound..Its a 3" system, which I was planning on anyway, and he says Flowmaster mufflers, with turndowns at the exits...I dont want that, I want a full system..and he doesnt know which Flowmasters...can anyone help? Its loud, but I dont mind..only drive the thing to cruizes and shows anyway..is anyone familiar with the Flowmasters,and if so, can anyone guess which ones would sound like this? Thanks for the help, this site is the best......John

If they are as loud as you say, they are Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers. Not the Delta Flow Technology though. Very loud. Very nice. Very cool. Hope this helps. Also go with aluminum pipes...longer life & they don't rust.

Flowmaster makes a kit called the 'American Thunder' system & you can get the full system or ones with turndowns like you described, but those only go up to 2 1/2 inch pipes.

I'm partial to Borla stainless mufflers....ah, I can still hear the roar drowning out everyone who told me it was too loud.

I used 3 chambered Flows with my 66 SB with full exhuast and love it.Not to loud at low cruise or at top cruise speeds.I ordered them from Summit and had local shop do the pipes.Going to do the same with the BB ElCam.this spring.
