V force exhaust mufflers

Has anyone here ever used or heard these mufflers? My local exhaust shop recommended them today. They said they are lifetime warranty and cheaper than the others. I looked at one and it seemed to be good quality. The web site is www.vforceexhaust.com . Any comments? thanks ccnova

I have a pair of FlowPro's on my SHO, they are not very quiet and a little raspy for my tastes, those baffles don't do much baffling with the louvers. Big long resonator fixed her right up though. They are heavy duty with a nice solid case, thats why I bought them.

I think if I bought them again I would get the V-Force versions, I doubt they could be much louder.

V- farce cans

I put a pair of 2.5 in v force mufflers on my '77 BBC crew cab tow rig almost 2 years ago, the sound was harsh, but low frequency. I added resonators to the system, and it sounded ok around town, but the first time I hooked up the car hualer and hit the hiway, there was a booming rumble at cruise, ( 60 to 75 MPH )the frequency is low, but the amplitude is high, ( 72 to 76 db ) I've tried a lot of recommended fixes, like, adding more hangers, and even built sheet metal shrouds over the cans and added a layer of felt pad under the carpet, over the cans, all with no real reduction in interior noise. my daily driver is also a BBC with true duals,2.5 in. but I spent the bucks for the flowmasters, and I can clearly hear my wife *****in' when I drift to the left lane and lean on it...I'll never have another pair of V-Farce cans

Thanks for the replys. From the way it sounds we will probably stay away from them.We will probably go with Dynomax ultra flos. Thanks again ccnova

You might want to check out the Raptor mufflers from Holley. They are a turbo style muffler. Also I heard Dynomax makes a turbo style for Firebirds and Camaros called the Mini Boss. I think Jegs has em and they are realitivly inexpensive

I've been running V-Force mufflers in my Mustang for two years now. I like 'em. They do resonate a bit but with the rpm's I turn on the highway she actually smooths out on the highway. Everybody is different as far as what they like and don't like. I know a lot of guys that hate sidepipes, I love the loudest sidepipes you can get. The V-Force I have are nice and deep idling and in my opinion open up louder than the Flows when hammerin' her. People regularly comment me on how nice she sounds so I deal just fine with a little resonation here and there. You can see pictures of them in my car in my gallery here. Like I said, everybody's tolerances and likes are different so you can't always go by others opinions. I like loud, they are loud, done deal.

You have to admit they are well built mufflers with heavy cases and guts even if they are loud. For the price I paid there was no alternative to get this level of build quality, first thing I thought of when I seen them in person is they look like the welded Dynomax race mufflers.

Those can take a backfire or two!

this thread is 4 years old. If you want to know what they sound like look it up on youtube to get some sound clips. I wouldn`t go by anothers opinion on my ride, cause all you use mufflers for is good sound or a sound that is likeable to your ears.

hi guys. I was just roaming around on the web and found this thread. I have a 2001 trd supercharged toyota 4runner (not really a hot rod i guess haha), and I have had a vforce muffler in my car for some time now. My exhaust includes doug thorley headers, no catalytic converter, 2.5 tubing, the vforce, and it comes straight out the side of the car. Everything that has been posted here seems in line with what ive experienced. The muffler is very raspy and rumbles nicely at idle. But when you open it up, man does it get LOUD! Much louder than any magnaflow, etc ive heard. I have to use 93oct in the car as well, so I think its because of the vforce I can spit fire balls
Its all opinion I think. Ive grown to like the vforce very much, to the point where I think I'd prefer it over anything else. Yes, it will vibrate the car pretty well. But my truck is very solid, and i havent had any vibration problems. Ive found it to be a very open and free flowing muffler. The only downside ive had with it is... you will really bother anyone outside the car when you rev up!
