So I've heard alot of opinions about straight pipes but I wanted to see what you guys thought. Do they really burn your valves or are they even bad for your engine?

I bet! I have heard straight pipes were bad for your engine but wasn't sure. I don't have the Money for mufflers now so I was just curious.
Thanks

Ouch straight pipes are loud without mufflers just a heads up haha you could get a ticket cruising at night as a disturbance if a cop rolls by and can hear your rumble over his own head thinking haha but he will know you car is straight beast

It will still be loud and your car will be fine.
Yeah your car will be fine, I had no cats and mufflers before and it was too damn loud. I got the flowmaster mufflers and it has a nice deep, LOUD, throaty sound maybe itll sound close to mine if you keep the cats on

If I were you then I'd just wait until funds arise to buy the exhaust set-up you want. I honestly can not stand the sound of straight pipes. :/ It's just obnoxious.

in order for it to burn your valves you would have to have very big pipe or a very short exhaust line~ you should have no issues just removing your cars using the same size pipe that the rest of the area is and then use mufflers... you want mufflers else it will sound bad.

I consider straight pipe as no cats or mufflers. Its what some rednecks do to there 4WDs. And its so choppy sounds like ass.

I fail to see how straight pipes,even open headers would cause damage to 4stroke eng?...your valves provide all the back pressure you need!...not saying exhaust doesn't effect hp tq just sayin!..
2cycle engines are a different story as far as back pressure...

I was just talking to my Exhaust guy about this yesterday, no it won't harm your car, it will leave you with loud tho, and it might not sound good on decel, you may get some popping off throttle, but as said before, cats and resonators still on is not straight pipe, no worries man do what you gotta do til you can do what you wanna do.

So you don't like pipes that are loud because you say they are obnoxious. But then you say you wouldn't be able to hear mine over yours. You sound like an idiot bro.

Mine are the loudest i've heard, so, assuming that you are telling the truth with I highly doubt now, you must have some seriously obnoxiously loud pipe which you said in the beginning that you don't like. What a clown.
really?....... we are talkn bout freak'n exhaust here. it's not that serious. dont turn this thread into something it's not
