My buddy ran bassani LT's and bassani x with nothing after that. Kept it that way for about 3 days til his axle backs came in. It was so stupid loud even ricers were embarrassed for him.

Yes, you can run on open headers... if you want your ears to bleed and possibly suffer from tinnitus for the rest of your life.
