DynoMax Expands VT Muffler Line-Up

The DynoMax “drone free” VT muffler is now available on a wider variety of vehicles, according to the DynoMax website. We profiled the DynoMax VT muffler a few weeks back, so you should check it out if you haven’t already. The muffler design is conceptually very simple, and based on some testing we found it seems to work.

The list of vehicles that DynoMax has added to their VT muffler line-up is telling – it’s a safe bet that most of the vehicles on this list have some sort of drone problem with a lot of after-market mufflers:

  • 2011 Ford F-150 5.0L
  • 2009-11 Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon 5.3L
  • 2009-10 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500
  • 2010-11 Chevrolet Camaro 3.6L V6
  • 2010-11 Chevrolet Camaro SS 6.2L V8
  • 2009-10 Ford F-150
  • 2008-10 Ford F-250/F-350 SD V8 (gas)
  • 2007-08 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500
  • 2005-08 Ford F-150
  • 2003-09 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 5.7L/8.0L
  • 1999-2007 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500

Trucks, like the Ford F150, Super Duty, Ram 1500 and Ram HD, as well as the GM half tons and the GM HD trucks, often have owners who complain about drone from after-market mufflers. Trucks often suffer from drone problems because:

  1. The muffler is almost directly beneath the driver’s feet
  2. The engines are big and require big mufflers, which are more likely to vibrate
  3. The truck bed acts as a “sound box” and can amplify exhaust sounds
  4. Trucks typically have less sound-deadening materials than cars or SUVs, which are designed more for comfort

What’s a little surprising from this list is to see the Camaro – most sports car owners like a loud exhaust system, and very rarely do you hear someone complain about too much noise. Perhaps DynoMax is trying to blaze a trail here – offering powerful sports car exhausts that don’t necessarily make a lot of noise.
