Brief drive with only manifolds

Would it be detrimental to run my bird for about two minutes with only manifolds for exhaust? Don't care about a cel just need to move her to do some work and neutral rolling is not at option. Obviously I'd want to keep the rpms as low as possible. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

I ran my SC with only headers for test for a bit didn't seem to do any harm. I was at idle only though.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

Not a problem, as long as you don't mind the noise.

I had to drive mine across town. Got some weird looks and a little black exhaust soot left over in the engine bay.

I had to drive mine about 10 miles with open headers to the exhaust shop.
