Performance does not come from simply changing "Any" muffler.............if that is what you are looking for, one thing that is guarantied...........It will be louder! ....If that is what you are looking for?

I have seen posts from those who have installed these and claim more power, better fuel economy blah, blah,
Now, if you were to use this in conjunction with say a Banks kit which pushes more air into the engine, then I might agree. Otherwise, I say BS.

Before and after the muffler change and a good, reliable "Dyno" test results would be the only thing I would believe..........

I put an Aero Turbine muffler and resonator on our diesel motorhome. If there was a performance difference, I didn't notice it. That's not what I bought it for. I doubt that a simple muffler change would yield a 35 hp gain anyway.

But I sure like the way she sounds now!

Exhaust--MuffleróReplacement

Banks does not have a muffler, but AeroTurbine makes one that works very well on the diesel pushers. We dyno test them when installed at the shop and usually see big gains in torque on the tune of 60-85 ft. lb. tq. and about 35 HP. One of the best and safest improvements you can for economy and power on a diesel pusher!

After Market Cummins ISC330 Muffler




Unfortunately the only pictures I have of an AeroTurbine install are on one that was fairly open and easy to make work. We have never been not able to get one to fit, it is just that some require more imagination, more fittings/pipe and more time than others. We have both 4" and 5" versions and they are universal, so extra lengths of pipe are usually required as are mandrel bent elbows, strap clamps, U-clamps, universal hangers and if you want welded. The AeroTurbine frees up a lot of restricted exhaust flow, so it actually removes the heat from the manifolds quicker and more efficiently which in turn prolongs the life of the manifold. We are currently working on a Stainless/cast upgraded manifold for the ISC to solve the warping and cracking issues so many have had. The added power that is produced from the AeroTurbine will not harm your transmission, as it is nothing like a chip or module that forces the engine to produce more power...it simply is making the engine run more efficiently and in turn this allows it to produce more power to the rear wheels.

Depending on your coach configuration, this install can be quite easy or it can be quite difficult, however, like I mentioned in my previous post we will do what we can to help provide technical assistance in getting it mounted.

Here is one example of an AeroTurbine installed:

here's a fact... I own a muffler shop..install mbrp, flo-pro, diamond eye kits on diesel trucks daily..

it is fact that you can and will gain hp with custom exhaust..

some no.... but most yes..

one of the no's is the V10 ford..I cut one open and it is a chambered muffler

another fact... I took one look at the stock muffler on my 04 alpine

what were they thinking

and another thing... wouldn't the exhaust be better going out the back... why is it out the side...to keep the car behind you clean???

I installed one this spring. I see no difference in fuel consumption. Not the reason I chose it. It is louder, which I like being an old hot rodder. Doesn't bother the wife and that is a good thing.

AeroTurbine

I install a 5" AeroTurbine on my ISL Alpine coach going the same trip L.V to S.D. c.c set at 62 mph scan"D"gauge shows gain of .06 to .08 mpg and 2 to 3 mph increase up Cajon pass on 3 trips since install, muffler is a little louder and a deeper tone butt well worth the cost

Any chance of checking it out? how much louder?do you know if the mbrp is quieter and gets the same results?

I live of west Ann rd. and my shop.,,, best muffler shop is down off Fremont

boys took it over so I'm not there much unless I want something..
I think I have about 50 mbrps in stock...

where and what do you do with the coach.... off road?
