About Our Company

Meet The Owner  

Hello and welcome, my name is Dan Wheeler, I own and operate Extreme Mufflers.

 I have been in the racing and high-performance industry for over 30 years. Starting at Peterson Publishing, the publisher of Hot Rod, Car Craft, Rod & Custom magazines, and produced the SEMA Show.  Later I became a regional sales manager for Sun Electric out of Chicago.

After many years with Sun Electric, I started Creative Marketing.  We were a performance manufacturing representative agency for the high-performance and racing manufacturers throughout the 11 western states. We represented companies like Borla,  working with their distributors and was active at many racing events, from sprint cars to NHRA national events for them.

Being involved most days for many years with some aspect of the racing & hi-performance industry, I was seeing issues arising because of city growth for track promoters and some tracks even closing due race car noise. So, in 2004, I started Extreme Mufflers to help meet the needs of both racers and track promoters.


About Extreme Mufflers

Since Day 1, our goal at Extreme Mufflers is the development of sound control without sacrificing horsepower. As these dyno charts from Ed Pink Racing Engines and Bob Wirth R & D Manufacturing show, we have achieved that.

After years of dyno and track testing, Extreme Mufflers has developed a race muffler that doesn’t sacrifice performance for sound levels to meet your local tracks noise requirements — making this a win-win for racers, engine builders, track promoters, and the communities.

Unlike most “race mufflers” on the market today that have adverse effects on engine performance our Extreme Mufflers are a flow-thru design and are considered a sound abortion style muffler. There are no chambers or walls put in the muffler to redirect or restrict the flow to deaden sound which causes power loss and engine tuning issues.  

One of the other areas we recognized as a problem was the muffler size. In so many race cars and high-performance applications, it is difficult to fit the muffler into. So we offer many of our mufflers in various sizes to help with that issue, or we’ve put the correct turnout on it for you to improve the ease of installation.

Whether you are a track promoter or city official trying to deal with noise issues, an engine builder wanting to make sure the required exhaust system doesn’t affect your work or a racer wishing to select the right product to meet your tracks dB requirements, please contact us; we are here to help.

Again welcome and we look forward to helping you muffle your exhaust issues.
