Flowmaster’s Scavenger Series Elite Headers for classic and modern muscle cars are no joke. From ceramic coated stainless to scavenging velocity cones, to long tubes and 50-state legal shorties, these headers mean business. Follow along as we review the entire line-up and install a set on one of our shop cars.

Kooks Custom Headers designed these factory-replacement, big-tube shorty headers to replace the factory Tri-Y manifolds on the current Mustang platform. Testing shows a solid horsepower and torque gain throughout the RPM band.

When it comes to the classic Flowmaster Sound, there’s more than just one muffler to choose from. From moderate to aggressive, Flowmaster has several mufflers to choose from and we performed a sound test on eight of them.

Which is the better car, a new Mustang GT or a new Camaro SS? While we’re not going to give our opinion on which one we like better, with help from host Jessica Barton, we took these cars to BBK Performance and threw the company’s most popular bolt-ons at them and ran them on the dyno after each step.

Corsa Performance Exhausts has developed the technology to reduce unwanted sound without robbing performance through their patented Reflective Sound Cancellation design. Here’s an inside look at how Corsa develops and manufactures their exhaust systems right here in the US.
Headers can help you make more power, but they can also bring it down. We aren’t experts in the exhaustive arts, so we called in some favors from some of the leaders in the header world. These guys are experts, and they schooled us in the science of headers.

Project Wild E. Coyote sheds the wheezy factory exhaust system in favor of a full JPC header back exhaust. We pick up over 30HP to the tires with the completely premium modular-design exhaust system. Check out the install story and dyno results right here.

Flowmaster, the leader in performance exhaust technology, recently developed two new axle-back exhaust systems designed for the popular new 2011 5.0L Mustang and we’ve set out to provide a sound comparison between these two differing yet similar systems that deliver that famous Flowmaster note.

We test three muffler kits on an S197 Mustang – The Hushpower axle-back system, utilizing the Hushpower “Pro Series” round mufflers; the American Thunder axle-back kit, utilizing the 40-series classic dual-chamber mufflers; and the American Thunder cat-back kit, using the 60-series Delta Flow mufflers.
Today’s Cherry Bomb just doesn’t sell just glasspacks anymore either, they have six different muffler designs as well as other stuff including catalytic converters, tips and most everything you’ll need to get performance and a nice exhaust note for your muscle car, diesel truck, hot rod and modern machine!
If you’re talking cars and you drop the words hand-made or custom, the first thing that comes to mind is quality. Something that is hand-made will always have a personal and even a little mystical feeling to it. The guys at Kooks Custom Headers are people that believe in just that.
The guys over at Bassani decided that our stock exhaust needed an upgrade on our Project New Take Off V6, so they installed a Bassani X-pipe and true Dual Exhaust with Bassani’s 2.5-inch Street Race Mufflers.
It used to be that a diesel power plant was a requirement for towing with most Ford trucks. But with the introduction of the 5.4L Modular power plant, the Ford F150, F250, and Expedition got enough oats to tow, though still lacking to the diesel big brothers.

Air is a wonderful thing. When you mix fuel with air is when things get really good. What many don’t think about is what happens to the air and fuel after it is burned in the combustion chamber. The events that take place in the narrow tubes under your car can greatly effect its performance. With a V6 Mustang, you’re stuck with a crappy single exhaust.

Coatings do great things – anything from keeping heat out, engine items lubricated, and parts looking good. Tech Line Coatings has released a line of professional and do-it-yourself coatings that allow you to cost-effectively coat parts with little to no prior knowledge. “We have a coating for any engine part,” says Tech Line’s owner Leonard Warren. But outside the engine, there are parts like brake calipers and rear end gears that can also benefit from coatings.

We remove the stock exhaust and open it up with aftermarket headers and a full exhaust system with Kooks headers and Flowmaster mufflers on our pet Fox Body Mustang, more commonly known as “Project 666.”

We all know that most automotive enthusiasts are horsepower junkies. They try to get more power out of their daily drivers, race cars, go karts, golf carts and even their tow vehicles. Racers have been known to race their tow vehicles and even get into pulling competitions on the track. But outside of fun, more power in a tow vehicle makes it easier to pull larger loads.

When it comes to adding a performance sound to a Fox body, it can be easy to get lost in the TONS of different kits out there. One name that has always come to mind is Flowmaster, and the famous sound and the 5-liter seem to go together like ice cream and chocolate. Now, Flowmaster has upped the ante, adding 409S Stainless Kits to their already impressive resume of products for the most popular muscle car in the world.
We’ve been Mustang enthusiasts for quite a while and have attended hundreds of Mustang events. That being said, we’ll venture a bet that one of the first performance modifications made by a Mustang owner is to install a set of Flowmaster mufflers on the new ride.
