I'm wanting to run an open X pipe for a while but I've heard that I could burn a valve doing this is this true ?

The only way you'll burn a valve is if your running lean. And I mean real lean. Throwing on a O/R X-pipe can lean out your mixture a bit, but not so much that you'll burn a valve. I've been running an O/R X-pipe on my '04 GT for five years now and no problems. Now I do also have a tune in it too, so if your still a bit concerned then I would suggest getting a tuner for it.

So ill be fine if I run the x pipe open for a couple of weeks
Unless your car has a persisting condition causing it to run really lean, then yes. You'll have no problems. I ran a Cat Less setup on my '96 Monte-Carlo for about two years before I got it tuned, and had no problems. So if a Chevy product can do that, then a Ford can do better!... :D
