A test to measure the noise level of the exhaust system.
Yes. A car can run without an exhaust manifold. It will burn out the exhaust valves in the cylinders a lot faster than normal, but it can be done.
A dual exhaust system is designed to reduce exhaust backpressure, making the engine run more efficiently.
No, they dont run on gas, therefore exhaust is not giving off.
by having a exhaust shop weld on a y pipe then just run the dual pipes out the back
You could have a problem with exhaust back-pressure which can stem from a restricted converter. To test for this you can use an exhaust back pressure tester inserted in the upstream 02 sensor. You can also remove the upstream 02 sensor and test drive the car. There should be some improvement in the car's performance under load with the exhaust having a place to go. This will be very noisy, you will not want to run the car like this for too long.
you need to buy what they call a tuner muffler. They run from $129.99 and up.

Flames shooting out of race car exhaust pipes is caused by unused fuel passing from the cylinder into the exhaust system and lighting by the heat of the exhaust. Race cars run a different grade of fuel than a normal passenger car so this is common. You have to really soop up a normal car engine for this to happen on a normal car.
On a car it is the tube that takes a v-8's 2 exhaust headers and combines them into a a single exhaust to run thru 1 muffler.
the danger of all the exhaust, carbon monoxide poisoning.
This can be caused by a cracked head or blown head gasket.
White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of moisture in the combustion chamber. If you see it after that initial startup, then suspect a blown head gasket. A compression test will verify this.
