Exhaust Moisture Puffs?
The other day I was behind a Gen 3 SS when the guy decided to clutch second, and give her some stick(oh baby). The car took off, and as the revs got up, a huge puff of what looked like water came out of the exhaust... I thought that was pretty strange.
Two days later I was driving my. I had it running on ULP. I down geared and gave her some stick, after a few seconds I heard a sudden weird exhaust note, and when I looked in the rearview, there was a puff of moisture just like the SS did.
After this I noticed that the exhaust was a bit louder, and if anything, the car was going better.
I have not been able to figure out how this is possible. I have a brand-new hi flow exhaust system, and the cat has only done about 10,000k's.
The car was warm, which means the exhaust would have been hot enough to turn the water into steam.. well I think so anyway.
I have not given the car any stick either for the last thousand k's or so.
Anyone else ever see this?
Anyone know why?
