Unhappy bASSANI AND B&B MIDS WILL THIS HURT THE ENGINE?

INSTALLED the headers today and they went on reasonably well besides it missing half the hardware- (TRIP TO THE STORE)after using some copper permatext to piece the multible exhaust gaskets back together- they went back on fairly easily- and yes having a buddy there with you to help is the way to go. next bought some B&B mids and high flow cats from a forum member here and they are not even close(BESIDES MISSING THE CLAMPS AND HARDWARE AS WELL)- so BACK TO THE STORE
next week i will have to drive 25 miles to a header/exhaust shop to have the mids worked into shape and extended to meet up with the magna flow CB- WILL THIS HURT THE ENGINE IF I RUN IT WITH JUST THE HEADERS AND MIDS WITH NO MUFFLERS??????????????? THERE WILL BE SOME FREEWAY DRIVING INVOLVED- PLUS IT SOUNDS LIKE I TOP FUEL DRAGSTER! WHICH ISNT ALL BAD! please let me know the best option here

ALWAYS replace the exhaust gaskets (don't re-use them unless they still in 'one piece').
VTCOA members/vendors Dragon or TheMoparConnection can get them for you super cheap.
That Permatex will last as long as Billy Ray Cyrus on karaoke night.

Just need to check:
- You didn't happen to put the Left mid on the Right pipe (and vice versa), did you?
- You didn't purchase an exhaust from a RC, did you?
It just sounds a little odd that they didn't match up.

i will replace the gaskets next week- since i ordered some on friday- i made a sandwhich type effect with the copper perm. like the instructions said- but i agree as soon as i get the new ones i will be switching them,

the mids seem like they are to short or missing some pieces or something? i installed the main mid with cat to the header and then there is the second piece- and there is really only one way these should go to make the crossover to the passenger side to head back to the magnaflow inlets. ii got these from hunter-angler and he said these were for a QC- AM i missing parts?

If you got it from a QC owner, then I think you're okay.

Check with HunterAngler about any missing parts.
I doubt it, but it's worth a quick email.

There might be a compatibility issue when going from B&B header/mids to Magnaflow catback. I haven't seen it on the forum yet, but then again...I don't read EVERY thread.

Any chance you can post some pics of the underside? That'd REALLY help with diagnosis.

Is any sealer needed on Stock SS OEM manifold gaskets using existing cast iron manifolds?

With my Magnaflow catback (& stock mids/cats), I learned that it was easier to attach ALL of the exhaust together, THEN get it to the header.
These might be a different animal, but that's how I've done it in the past.

the B&B mids were designed to bolt-up to either their headers, or the stock manifold. (two different part numbers). i think thats the problem.
