LOS ANGELES, Tues., Jan. 25, 2011 – A leader in innovative performance exhaust technologies, DynoMax® Performance Exhaust has added the revolutionary, drone-free DynoMax® VT™ high-performance muffler to 13 performance cat-back and axle-back systems covering a variety of late-model truck, Jeep and muscle car applications.

DynoMax Performance Exhaust products are manufactured and marketed by Tenneco Inc. (NYSE: TEN). DynoMax is one of North America’s leading brands of dyno-proven exhaust technologies for muscle cars, diesel and gas trucks and sport utility vehicles, and sport compact/European cars. The new systems will be available late spring at performance retailers nationwide.

“As soon as we released the drone-free DynoMax VT muffler, enthusiasts began asking for bolt-on, easy-to-install cat-backs and axle-backs with the VT muffler,” said Joe Pase, director, performance products, Tenneco. “There’s just nothing like the DynoMax VT muffler on the market today, and now, it’s available in some high-flow, performance kits for a variety of models.”

The new DynoMax VT systems will include the 100-percent welded VT muffler, an innovative, high-flow stainless steel performance design that controls irritating drone while ensuring maximum performance.

Built around the exclusive, precisely calibrated patented internal valve, the muffler also includes slotted bushing ends; exclusive Continuous Roving Fiberglass (CRF) technology that absorbs additional unwanted interior resonance and allows for a rich, deep performance tone; and a show-stopping DynoMax VT logo-embossed body and high-impact micro-finish.

The DynoMax muffler’s proven performance advantage also can be seen in recent flow-bench testing of the DynoMax VT (No. 17956), MagnaFlow (No. 11226), and Flowmaster (No. 42541) products. The DynoMax VT muffler delivered 841 cubic-feet-per-minute flow, compared to 588 CFM for the MagnaFlow and 373 CFM for the Flowmaster.1

The muffler – engineered to deliver the DynoMax’s trademark “Drone-Free Performance™” – offers the flow characteristics of the legendary DynoMax Ultra Flo® Welded muffler, through a straight-through unrestricted design that is dyno-proven to support up to 2,000 CFM and 2,000 horsepower.

Each system includes application-specific piping, hangers, and other hardware plus handy, instructive installation guides for a fast and easy install.

The new systems are covered by a limited lifetime warranty and exclusive 90-day Performance and Sound Guarantee, an offer that lets enthusiasts try the system for 90 days.
