    I was told that if you have a bad exhaust leak it could blow up your engine. Is this true? As far as I knew you could pull your entire exhaust off and it would still run fine, perhaps even better.

    I'm looking at buying a 1967 galaxie 500. The emblem on the car says it's a 390 motor, but the owner told me that some one put a 428 in it. I know there is probably not a lot of difference between the two motors, but does anyone know of a way to tell if it really is a 428 and not a 390. Any...
