Uh...you are driving around with straight headers correct?
I wouldn't necessarly say that you are a wuss...but I don't think that I would be driving it very far like that...unless you like to fix motors alot.
Later,
WEIMER

Am you a Wuss?

Can't say but the exhaust right out of headers gives me a headache. Nothing like a good set of Glass packs.

Well, if you're a 'wuss' I guess that makes me one too... I wear ear protection now, every time I shoot the 'ol 357 mag.

HUH??

I've got a set of header mufflers, got them off a buddy, he was using them for his race car, but they have 3" collector pipes on them that are about 10" long & little down turn tips. They are always good for getting freshly headered cars to the muffler shop & they are just good to run sometimes. They are easy to take off @ the track for open headers too.

Well hell,
I must really be a "wuss". I wear ear protection even when im just sand blasting or using other pneumatic tools. Wont even do it for "just a second" because "just a second" adds up to a long time over time.
