    So without going into how this happend, I am currently stuck with this: After the catless H-pipe One side has a short flow pipe and flowmaster 44 muffler. The other side cutts off at the H-pipe (flow pipe and muffler are no longer connected). With a limited understanding, I would think that this will cause unequal back pressure. I am currently about 3.5 hours from my garage, and was going to make the drive this weekend. Will this hurt my engine? It is loud as heck, and I fear getting pulled over if I were to just take the other side off. One look underneath and any cop could tell there are no cats.

    It won't hurt the motor but why not stop by any exhaust shop and have them fix it up? Should be about a hundred bux to fit a tube in it?

    Or do u have mufflers at the house?
