Flowmaster Mufflers

February 13, 2017

Started over 30 years ago, Flowmaster mufflers were a solution to sound issues at race tracks in California. They worked through many ‘firsts’ in automotive exhaust technology. Flowmaster’s mission is “to bring you the highest quality exhaust products through innovation, advance manufacturing experience and dedication to customer service and satisfaction.” We’re excited at Hurricane Automotive to sell their products because they bring us new exhaust systems and mufflers for the most popular brands and models.

Catalytic Converter Issues

Catalytic converters can last for over 10 years but may become contaminated, clogged, overheated, or physically damaged. This may lead to slow engine performance and potentially even engine shutdown. Leaded gas, although rarely found in the United States, can destroy a catalyst. Engine coolant can leak into the combustion system because of a faulty cylinder head gasket. Engine oil is another culprit.

Catalytic Converters and Your Needs

November 4, 2016

Fitting a Catalytic Converter to Your Vehicle

When looking into emission systems, you want to know what type your vehicle has so we can be sure our catalytic converter fits your system effectively. Here at Hurricane Automotive, we have a two-step system for ensuring that you know your emission system. First you need to determine whether your car was manufactured to CARB or Federal Specifications. The label to help you identify emissions systems your vehicle has will be one of three places:

  1. On the front radiator supper
  2. On the strut tower plate
  3. Under the engine hood

The second step is to know the EPA regulations for your state. The type of catalytic converter you need to purchase will also depend on where your vehicle is registered. Some states have different rules, so be sure you know where you’re registered before you select your catalytic converter to purchase. If you have any questions, please contact us and we will help you with all of your catalytic converter needs!
