Open headers = engine damage?
I have been thinking about getting remote operated motorized exhaust cutouts for quite a while now, but I have some concerns.
I've heard that running open headers can damage you engine...something like burning the exhaust valves Is this something to worry about? How can I prevent it...because I know you can run open headers...tons of street rod guys do it. I need to know how to run cutouts (which will essentially be open headers) without hurting my engine.
Modifications worth noting:
Cobra brakes, BBK headers, H&Rs, Bilstiens
