Can i run my car with only one muffler attached?

I have a 2013 Ford Mustang v6 equipped with 2 Flowmaster aftermarket mufflers, but it's not loud enough so I was thinking can I just run with no mufflers for about 2 weeks until I can by the muffler delete kit. I have taken out the mufflers to test out the sound a di have put them back on and I also found out that the exhaust is pointing away from fuel and brake lines and just points at the sway bar. So can i run my car with no muffler attached or with only one attached and is it ok to do that to the car for about 2 weeks.

Okay, here is a hint:



This is a 3rd Generation (82-92) F-body (Camaro & Firebird) forum. The "F" does not stand for FORD.
Post your question to a Mustang forum. It's not that we don't know the answer to your question - it's just that we don't care!

L M F A R T F O !!!! Besides, if that's not loud enough for a "new" car, then just take the exhaust manifolds off -- go ahead.... try it

It will probably show the ID-10-t code. This code is not able to be deleted once it shows up.

I give the guy some credit, usually the people who come on here and ask us how to fix their 96 Chrysler Sebring never reply again after they make the post

Actually momo1919, if you ever do get a 3rd gen f-body, you will be welcome here and find this site very informative.
Some members here also own Fords, but we don't talk about that.
