      hey all, I have a 97 5.0 AWD that I'm fixing up. One of the repairs I'll need to perform is an exhaust header replacement on the RH side and will be one of the first things I do. As far as moving the car around or letting it run, will the cracked header cause any other damage?

      It's safe enough, just annoying as hell.

      Could suck leaner than expected air mixture during EGR function. This is usually on low throttle -high vacuum cycles though.
