WHAT FLOWMASTER EXHAUST WOULD BE THE DEEPEST, AND LOUDEST FOR MY CAMARO.

Posted in Exhaust and Mufflers
  • HI, I HAVE A 92 CAMARO RS, WITH A 305 V8. IT SOUNDS NICE, BUT I WOULD LIKE IT TO HAVE A DEEPER GROWL, SO WHAT FLOWMASTER EXHAUST WOULD BE THE BEST?? THANKS

      the original 40 series with 3 inch dual pipes

      Just FYI I don’t know a single girl that thinks that’s cool. In fact, every girl I know would think that’s incredibly annoying and embarrassing.

      ….and who cares what the girls think? It’s a man’s car…if we wanted a girls opinion then we’d allow you to leave the kitchen and ask you what you thought.

      Anyway, 40 series flowmaster would be deep and probably make you happy.

      Ava, as a man, I don’t find that attractive when you speak without being spoken to.

      MOPARRRRRRRRRRRR.

      You’ll make the most power and get the best mileage with a single 2 1/2 inch system/Flowmaster.
      A single 3 inch Flowmaster/pipe will sustain over 360HP, which you are FAR from that. If the engine does not put out the exhaust output to adequately displace air volume inside the Flowmaster hambers, then it will be loud yes, but it will not build the velocity inside of it to effectively scavenge exhaust from the engine and hence will be significantly down on power. Especially in the lower RPM range. And that will directly deduct from your fuel economy. Therefore, you can sound fast but not necessarily be fast.

      Now you have been informed. Size your exhaust system accordingly.

      For that “girl’s” 2 cents worth, let me respond. My wife’s 80 Z28 project runs Pacesetter long tubes into dual 2 1/2′s and Flowmaster 40′s, and she LOVES it. She loves that she competes with my single 3″ Borla setup on my 95. The right girl’s find it cool, and that’s what counts!

      I think that it might be a little dangerous to recommend a good “loud/deep” system for you right now if you’re running stock. Are you? If so, let me tell you; a single 3″ system resonates the interior of the car and Flowmaster 40′s make the interior shake even more. You’ll get loud and deep, but you will also lose a lot of comfort in your car should you be driving it for any distance. Case in point – the aforementioned 80 Z28. Even though the pipes are smaller, the dual 40′s make normal volume conversation a little harsh at highway speeds. Take a good long thought at what you want versus what you can deal with over the long haul.

      My 95 gets by with a 3″ system because it needs it. If I were working with a 305, I would have kept it 2 1/2 mandrel bent to my muffler and saved myself some interior comfort, all while I got the good bark out the back end, and that’s just the starting point.

      I’m completely with you on this one Shaun T – 3″ is absolute overkill, will do nothing for performance, and in my opinion will only add unwanted extra resonance. However, he’s shot for scavenging at his pipe ends anyway – he’s likely still running his catalytic(s). He would need to get velocity off the headers (assuming he has those), ensuring his y pipe and cats were flowing top notch before he’d ever see any benefits from the 40 – his pressure wave reversion and scavenging begins to occur at the face of the stocker cat, since that’s the first effective flow reduction point. Taking that into account, he could run a 3″ cat back and all he’d get out of it is that hollow razzy noise. A well done, mandrel bent 2 1/2 would serve him very well without the razz.

      All that being said, for late 3rd and 4th generation f-body’s, the Borla cat back system is really the system to beat for the best combination of mellow, deep with the throaty bark on acceleration, without being unduly nasty (check the f-body boards – that’s their general take).
