Regardless of what state you live in, there are always certain laws and restrictions regarding motor vehicles. In South Florida, we make sure that our muffler and exhaust products go along with state regulation while still making your car drive smoother, and even faster. We looked into the Environmental Fact Sheet for Air Toxics from Motor Vehicles by the Environmental Protection Agency, just to make sure we knew everything there was to know about keeping car emissions low.
If you bring your car into us at Broward County Muffler, there are a few things we can do to improve your vehicle and they include:
– Catalytic Converters (add or remove)
– Flex Pipes
– Headers (performance based product)
While a majority of the air toxins come from gasoline evaporating, not ever replacing your muffler, or getting your car looked at an auto shop, can add even more pollutants. So, we’re trying to lower our carbon footprint while still keeping our customer’s happy with their vehicle, making it drive smoother and helping it to pick up faster.

Have you ever noticed how cars seem to be more efficient and run with more power once you remove your secondary catalytic converters that the car came with? We have too, and while we understand and can appreciate the eco-friendly value of adding more catalytic converters to any vehicle, once you remove the secondary ones, your car runs with more power, and it actually feels like you have more control. Regardless if you’re a car enthusiast or not, wouldn’t you want a car that runs efficiently and you have power over?
As a well sought after installation for vehicles today, catalytic converters are being stolen from cars and sold for scrap metal. If you are unaware of what a catalytic converter does, it controls the emissions that your car expels. When you car’s exhaust is producing toxic gas like carbon monoxide and other hydrocarbon’s, your catalytic converter creates a chemical reaction – inevitably producing less dangerous emissions.
