Water out exhaust

Is it normal to have water come out the exhaust?
I've been told that a little bit isn't bad, just condensation. But how much is a little bit?
Being aware of the EA gasket problems, as I blew one 6months ago, I just thought I'd ask

Cheers for replies

yeah, a litte bit of condensation on a cold start isn't anything to worry about.. But we're not talking drink tap style, only a little splurt when you rev the beast..

yeah its ok, but should disappear pritty quick once she is warm....if it still happens once shes hit operating temp then....well...im sure you know wot that means!

as long as your not using coolant (ie topping it up really often) you'll be right.......:s6:

Water's going out my exhaust I I have to top it up every three dyas!!!!!! I've been doing this for ages now, maybe 3 months and the only problem is the inconveinience of topping it up all the time. I haven't got the money at the moment to get it fixed, I'm looking at getting a new engine anyway so i'm not gunna worry about fixing it for the moment......

I had water coming out on the V8, and fixed it by drilling a 1/8" hole in the lowest part of the rear muffler. Wire brushed the entire underside of it and then 3 coats of Galmet cold galvanising. Should last longer. This idea came from Pete (or Blue) on these forums, it is not my original idea.

Here is a pic.

Note the little drain hole in the lower part of the muffler.
