Universal Mufflers

Universal Mufflers by Paradox Performance Muffler

Our universal performance mufflers offer more than groundbreaking technology- they offer incredible sound, anti-drone design, and are quality made in the USA by a small family company.

Pro Tone, Anti Drone

Paradox Performance Mufflers are designed to bring out rich, complex tones, but they aren't designed to "drone". Our anti-drone technology provides great sound quality while minimizing or even eliminating exhaust drone.

Groundbreaking Muffler Technology

All Paradox Performance Mufflers use our patented Tuning Fork Technology™. This provides bold, deep tones when idling and under acceleration. But at highway speeds, Paradox Performance Mufflers become quieter, which can reduce or even eliminate exhaust drone.

Virtually all other brands use three basic ideas: backpressure, sound absorption, or deflection. Paradox Performance Mufflers are the world's first "mechanically activated" mufflers- a category of its own capable of superior sound and flow.

Universal Performance Mufflers

We currently carry two universal performance mufflers: The Signature Series and Hot Tamale.

Signature Series Performance Muffler

Get industry leading sound, flow, and drone control with the Paradox Signature Series.

The Signature Series offers the same great sound in two universal versions: Signature Series Premium (aluminized steel case, 6 year limited warranty), and Signature Series Elite (stainless case, limited lifetime warranty).

If you're looking for deep sound, elimination of exhaust drone, and a great value- look no further than the Signature Series.

Hot Tamale Performance Muffler

The Hot Tamale is our extra loud universal muffler. They're almost as loud as no muffler at all. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice quality sound and control of exhaust drone.

Hot Tamales are ALL NEW this year- now with a limited lifetime warranty and a seamless stainless steel case.

If you want more volume, The Hot Tamale could be the perfect solution.
