New Product Spotlight: Flowmaster Pre-Bent Exhaust ’86-’97 F-150

OBS or Old Body Style Chevys and Fords have been growing in popularity with hot rodders for a few years now. As the late ’80s and ’90s year range slowly makes its way toward being classified as “classic,” enthusiasts who love cars and trucks alike from that era are seeing an influx of aftermarket offerings for their beloved wheels.

Such is the case for the new Flowmaster Pre-Bent Side-Exit exhaust for ’86-’97 Ford F-150 trucks. You can read the official press release from Flowmaster below.

When it comes to exhaust manufacturing, mandrel-bent is the performance standard.

“These Flowmaster pre-bent tailpipes fit the popular 1987 to 1996 Ford F-150 trucks. The tailpipes are 2.5-inch, 16-gauge aluminized steel and mandrel bent to allow better flow of the exhaust pulses as they exit the system. These tailpipes are designed to work with dual outlet mufflers and exit on each side of the bed, just after the rear tires. These tailpipes are a great way to add a factory like fitment tailpipe to a custom exhaust. Backed by Flowmaster’s three year limited warranty.”

By using mandrel bends instead of alternative methods, the Flowmaster dual-exit F150 pipes avoid pinches in the tubing which rob performance by restricting airflow.

There are unique features users can expect from a set of Flowmaster exhaust pipes for their OBS Fords. For starters, the mandrel-bent 2.5-inch aluminized tubing creates increased performance by improving the overall exhaust flow. Moving on, the dual-exit exhaust juts out from the body just after the rear tires and is designed for dual-outlet mufflers. Of course, this is all backed by Flowmaster’s three-year limited warranty.

The dual-exit exhaust that comes out just behind the rear tires adds an aggressive look to any build.

If you’re worried about any emissions implications that accompany these killer pipes, fear not, Flowmaster’s site states, “This part is legal for sale or use on Emissions Controlled Vehicles, Uncontrolled (Non-Emissions Controlled) Vehicles, and Racing Use Only Vehicles because it does not affect vehicle emissions and is not covered by emissions regulations.”
