Liquid (Gas?) from exhaust when Engine Revs
#1
I have a 351C 2v, edlebrock intake with a 1406 Edlebrock carb.

When I rev the engine, I notice droplets/light spray coming out the exhaust. There is no smoke. Could I be running rich or is this just condensation?

Any help on this would be great,
Thanks,

Start up your daily driver and you will probably see the same thing!

Sometimes, the condensation picks up carbon from inside the pipes and blows out black sooty colored water. Ugly but pretty much harmless.

Normal condensation, and if smoke was black your running rich, blueish is oil burning and white smoke screen is usually head gasket concern.

My firs new car was an 88 mustang 5.0, it came with drain holes in the mufflers to let out some of the condensation

Whew, awesome. The engine is fairly new rebuild and I am still working out some issues with the vacuum, but good to know that this is nothing to worry about.

Thanks y'all
