hi im re doing my Volkswagen beetle up and just wondering wot happens if I leave my heat exchangers off

2 Answers


the actual heat exchangers are part of the exh.manifold. if youre putting a header on you wont have heat in the car. you CANNOT run it without an exhaust manifold/header. I youre talking about leaving the hoses off that wont damage anything. you will have elevated under hood temps
