Q's about running w/o mufflers
Okay, so I am turning my 96' bird into a street/strip car and I'd like to know if running with out mufflers will hurt the engine. I'm going to use 2.5" high flow cats and I dont know if the engine will get enough back pressure. I dont want to burn up the valves. I planned on going with out mufflers and having each side dump on the side of the car, somewhere between the door handle and the front of the rear tire. If you can use your imagination, i think it'd look pretty cool.
the car will be using an 02 stock explorer engine at the moment, future upgrades are planned as $$$ comes along.
Also does anyone know of any specific headers that work well with the explorer engine in the 96 bird, basically I just want to know what will fit.
