EB 2 exaust

Is it dangerous to run an EB2 without the back 2 mufflers connected and just run it from the pipe that comes off the redback combustioner?? It runs and sounds tons better with the exaust disconnected half way down :)

I would say, yes, it is dangerous. You only need a small hole/leaky seal somewhere and fumes will enter the car. Have you ever driven in a station wagon with the tailgate up? If you have, you will know what I mean. Even though the car is moving forward, the fumes find a way in somehow.

That is why the make exhaust pipes go the length of the car and exit at the back. Of course for drag racing etc, you can do what you want within their rules, as it's only for a short period of time.

Youcould always replace the whole rear section with a piece of 3" exhaust pipe - I think you would find this nearly as good as running nothing.

Would anyone be safe if the falcon had a THM700

Can I be blunt about this topic? You coud actually became a deceased individual from this one - as in one dead dude!

Fumes actually get in your lungs and exclude oxygen from your blood stream resulting in unconsciousness. This happens without any warning - next thing you are on the wrong side of the road ina head-on with some poor family minding their own business.

Do the right thing and get the exhaust sorted out.
