Default is an exhaust nessacary?

i was wondering if you really had to have an exhaust on your car, like could you just run a pipe out to the side behind the front tire or would that somehow mess up your car?idk just a thought.

Ive heard many things. Like if the manifold is not hook up to the exhaust it could let too much hot air out and too much cold air in causing metal warping. Im not sure if its true. Also it will sound like the worlds biggest fart cannon and emissions wouldnt be good either.

i dont really see the purpose of not having an exhaust. extremly loud and it would probably melt some stuff like remington said. so i guess wut im trying to say is, for street use, yes it is necessary. for a quick drag, no its not.

Yeah, for a daily driver, do everyone on the road a favor and keep an exhaust on that thing. Get a good cat-back, nice low tone, performance upgrade, oh yeah... and legal!

Try it and let us know how it works out. Be sure to post some pics of the cops writing you tickets.

"Necessary? Is it necessary for me to drink my own urine? No, but it's sterile and I like the taste."

In some states it would be legal, but it would sound like a Nascar and you would tire of it in about 17.2 seconds.

Do it though, and post a sound clip.

wouldnt the exhaust fumes get sucked back into the engine if there was no header? since i have a warm air intake, installing a cold one this weekend, it would be running off exhaust fumes
