2011 FJ Cruiser K&N Drop in Filter and Flowmaster 40 Sound Clips Empty
PostSubject: 2011 FJ Cruiser K&N Drop in Filter and Flowmaster 40 Sound Clips   2011 FJ Cruiser K&N Drop in Filter and Flowmaster 40 Sound Clips Icon_minitimeThu Nov 17, 2011 12:55 pm

This thread is to show the difference the drop in K&N filter makes when adding it to the 2011 FJ Cruiser with a Flowmaster 40 (part # 942441). The reason I bring up the 2011 FJ verses older models is the intake is completely different on the 2010 and newer models.

K&N Part Number 33-2438 - Amazon.com $37.59 plus shipping

K&N’s replacement air filters are designed to increase horsepower and acceleration while providing excellent filtration. We make over 1,200 different replacement air filters for virtually every vehicle on the road. These filters are washable and reusable and are custom designed to fit into your existing factory air box. Their drop-in design means adding performance is simple. With most vehicles you simply remove the disposable air filter and replace it with a K&N. See applicable instruction sheet for details. Our stock replacement air filters for street vehicles are covered by our famous K&N Million-Mile Limited Warranty™ and will be THE LAST AIR FILTER YOUR VEHICLE WILL EVER NEED.

Flowmaster Part Number 942441 - Aarons Exhaust in Wilmington, NC $90.00 out the Door

This two chamber design incorporates Flowmaster patented "Delta Flow" technology. The "Delta" deflectors result in increased scavenging for better performance and reduced interior resonance over the standard 40 series with a nice growl outside the vehicle. Muffler sounds great on late model performance cars with catalytic converters. Constructed of 16 gauge aluminized steel and fully mig-welded for maximum durability.
Flowmaster also makes a Stainless version as well and it's about $20.00 more and the part number is 842441.

I thought when I went to the muffler shop they would have to order the muffler, but they had it in stock so there isn't a sound clip of the stock version. I'm sure you guys all know what that sounds like anyway!

Nothing (camera or FJ) moved in these two videos
Here's the Flowmaster Only Sound Clip



Here's the Flowmaster & K&N Filter Sound Clip




So as you can see the K&N did seem to make a little deeper rumble on crank and idle. By the way my gas mileage is really suffering on this tank full.

The first video sounds completely stock but I can really hear the difference in the second video. How does adding the filter make the exhaust tone come to life? I don't get this part of it.

That does sound really good. I like the TRD sound I have but I could handle a change.

i think it comes down to simply the amount of air that the engine is able to move...more in and more out...

thats my take..

Doing my muffler was one of the cheapest things to increase my driving enjoyment that I've done to the truck. Sounds good!

I must say driving all day long with this muffler on. Well It is one low tone growl I LOVE my TOYOTA all over again. If you want great sound and low tone . A growl that will snap heads your way. Then this is the muffler for you. Nice rich low growl !

Mine was installed yesterday. She even thinks now it sounds like a FJ cruiser should have sounded from the factory !
