Try 36 gal of diesel.

Or even worse, the 225gal (and that was @ 5 bucks a gallon when prices were really up there) I used to put in my Volvo Tractor before I entered the Air Force.

I've had my muffler off since I bought it basically and you are the only person who I have heard say that. Im not really sure why it would burn up the valves? It doesnt drop that much pressure. The exhaust is still going through 3 damn cats.

But I know Im never going to put a muffler back on it. It just sounds to damn good. Right now it just dumps under the car, but I will be extending the stock tail pipe to fit the gap of the muffler. That should raise back pressure a little bit.



Ive never really heard on any car that cutting the muffler off would burn up the valves. But if there is some proof or something then I would believe it!

Is it broken?

Well Im going to trust a fellow member who has done it, over some words through the grape vine that were given to me. I agree that it sounds amazing and the last thing I want to do is throw something on to quiet it down

Bought it!! 2001 Larado Select-trac 4.0 Stock

Still have my 93 Explorer 4x4 and so very glad that with this purchase i could find as good of a knowledge base that I have enjoyed with the explorerforum site.

Really liking the purchase so far. Except that a chain smoker owned it before me.

They let you get away with that in the Communist Republic of California?

Joking aside, I'm suprised that it passes emissions without a muffler.
