Will I be safe to drive my car 20 miles with open headers to the exhaust shop? And If not what do I need to do so I dont blow out my 02 sensors?

i've heard that you need 18 inches of pipe past the collector so the 02's don't read any fresh air.good luck

You will be fine and Its a lot of fun to see a penny jump 6 inches out of the ashtray when you get onto the highway :)
