      I was driving on a dirt road, must have been used with tractors cause it was real bumpy. Came back home and noticed it sounded slightly louder, along with metal banging. Looked under and the tailpipe was broken cleanly right behind the resonator. I'd be sad about this, but it actually sounds better now. I'm assuming it's illegal to drive with no tailpipe, but I hope not.

      Here's a photo of the resonator: https://i.imgur.com/sivYpjM.jpg

      I was thinking of replacing the muffler anyway, so I guess this is an option.

      Not only illegal, it’s not safe.

      Exhaust gases (carbon monoxide) can enter the passenger cabin like this.

      Sure driving a week while you get your plans together is fine, but don’t just leave it that way. Keep the windows open, especially when idling in traffic. Leave the fresh air vent setting on to help purge the cabin.

      Oh ok, thanks for the warning. I've gone to a shop now, waiting on them to get the parts delivered.
