Exhaust dumping minimum length

Hey. Would running seperate pipes (1 for each cylinder), about 2 feet long off the head cause major backfiring issues? Any other ill affects, other than the noise?

thank you.

Hearing loss. Huh?

To answer the question, maybe. If the backfire is on decel, yes. If the engine is healthy, no.

Not a very efficient set up for engines thzt don't spend a lot of time above 6000 RPM. Headers into a collector will make more power.

If you think carbon monoxide poisoning isn't a problem then no. Airflow around most cars will put the exhaust right in the cockpit if it is ahead of the doors.

Aye, damn it. I was thinking it might look really cool to run the exhaust straight out my hood on my Cutlass, seeing as how I can't afford to drive it more than a day a week as it is.
