6 inch dumps

I recently installed dumps on my 68 gto. I have full length headers then about six inches of exhaust then my dumps. Is it harmful to run with the dumps open? I have been told that I will mess up the valves. Any ideas??

No, you have enough exhaust to avoid valve warpage/burning issues. I would worry about carbon monoxide poisioning, though. BTDT, no fun---- and potentially fatal.
