Default Flows...

go to their website, you can listen to all thier different mufflers on different types of cars.

a search for flowmaster mufflers on www.google.com should get you there.

Just to let you know what I'm running. I have a 1968 Dodge Coronet 440 with a high performance 340 bored 30 over. I Have Hooker Competition headers running dual 2.5 pipes to Flowmaster Deltaflow 50's. I picked these because i wanted that deep loud sound but at idle it still deep.

Everyone loves the sound my car makes, I have people tell me that they can hear me coming from a couple miles away even at half throttle. And at idle it woke up my neighbor and grandson (it was only 9:30). At car shows starting it up I've got people come over from rows away just to see my engine. The part i love is when i tell them that it is only a small block. Hope that helps ya decide. It is only a 3 chamber so you just need to decide how loud you want it, my next engine is going to be a 440, I'm planning on hooking up Flowmaster 40's on it.

Thumbs down

I have flowmaster 40 series delta flows in a charger. 440. 9.4 comp. Hooker headers. 2.5'' pipes. 230/238 @ 50 cam. They are obnoxious. Increase the size of any of the other factors, cam, compression, tailpipe, I think they would be unbearable. Some people dig the sound, and I do think they sound cool, but living with them is another matter. Heard a lot of good reviews about Dynomax Ultraflow mufflers and mufflers from www.racemufflers.com or www.racemuffler.com (can't remember). Don't believe that the "delta flow" stops resonance or in any way quiets a one chamber muffler. It sounds, resonates, and behaves like a glasspack. Even has that rattle/buzz when you rev up the engine quickly and then let off.

Hi All;

I have a 73 DartSport 340, the exhaust was loud and tinny in sound. I called flowmaster and asked them. The lady I spoke with recomended deltaflow 50 series. I got them installed and I'm very happy not to loud and a deeper tone. The muffler isn't to big and fits in the stock area without hanging down, give them a call.

just recently installed the flowmaster delta 50 series [big block] mufflers on my 440. they are wonderful. not loud at all. soft rumble at idle and sound right when you put your foot into it. i have 3" exhaust and most people make the mistake and install the regular 3" 50 series flow's instead of the big block series 50's. they cost about $40-50 more per muffler but are worth it i think, they flow better and sound better. my 3 cents.

Thumbs up there on

Hi guys, well I went with flowmaster 40 series with my 340 cuda with dynomax hedders. Ran 2.5 all the way out to the tips, oh and put on a set of race reddies to boot. Am still not sure of the sound as it is not as deep sounding as before, but it definetly has a little more oooumph. The old exhast was laughable, 2 inch, 2 1/4, bent and twisted beyond belief,lol. Am very very happy with the job and know it only takes a few seconds to have instant open hedders, much more fun at the track Tim
