Not sure. I saw an early thread with someone saying they had two turbo mufflers. And, everytime a call a muffler shop for an estimate, they always ask, Turbo, Flowmaster, etc.

it's an older style of muffler, they could come from anybody, so quality depends on teh manufacturer -you'll get more sound and hp from a newer style muffler, regardless.

The 'Turbo' name was at one time used by the Thrush brand of mufflers. I'm not sure if this is the case here, but they were cheaply made compared to the Flowmaster brand.

I believe they are Thrush. Does anyone know anything about their mufflers? The Thrush series is a brand of DynoMax mufflers.

Dunno if corvairs had a turbo option or not, but that is where the turbo muffler originates. It was just a lower backpressure muffler, with a throatier sound. I ran one on my '82 GT. The Flow's will probably unlock more power, while the turbos will be quieter. A quiet car can still sound good though.
So, a turbo is a type of muffler. Several brands offer one.
