The Fox body Mustang brought Ford performance back from the brink of extinction, starting a revival among American muscle and performance cars. One of the key players in that performance revival was Flowmaster.
Flowmaster brought race-bred exhaust technology to the streets, giving the Mustang a sound that was easily recognized by all as uniquely Mustang and Flowmaster. That sound made Flowmaster mufflers legendary, and for nearly three decades Flowmaster has remained one of the most popular exhaust products for Mustang owners from classics to late model.
If you’re new to the Mustang scene, the video above is a great example of what the Fox body sounds like with a Flowmaster cat-back exhaust system installed. The Super 44 mufflers offer an agressive tone, while the mandrel bent 2 1/2-inch pipes improve exhaust flow. The system is made from 16-gauge 409 stainless steel, and carries a lifetime warranty.
Even diehard fans of other brands will admit that it’s hard to beat the sound of a Fox body equipped with Flowmaster mufflers. Flowmaster has even admitted in the past that they get calls from other brand owners wanting the Mustang sound. Flowmaster’s reply is usually that while they can make the car they’re calling about sound better, the only way to get that Fox body sound is to buy one and put Flowmaster mufflers on it.
Flowmaster systems are easy to install, and can be put in place by enthusiasts competent with hand tools, or by any shop that performs exhaust repairs. For more information on this system, part number 817116, or exhaust upgrades for other cars check out the Flowmaster web-site.
