Doubt it would cause any major damage running it like that short term. Engine heat being the biggest issue but you would have noticed that. We have had two cars in the family with plugged exhaust systems factory screw up oddly enough both were Fords. LOL - one ran lousy till we finally figured out what the issue was engine didn't seem to be bothered by it longer term. The other one was run for over 85,000 miles with a strange engine temp not hot but not normal either. It went to many dealers none of them could find anything wrong. Then one day our last effort to get it sorted some old grizzled shop rat says which engine is that? The 451 Windsor I bet you all $100 they put the wrong **** exhaust gasket in it at the plant and half the ports are blocked! **** of that old shop rat was right! Ran great for another 120,000 miles except the rest of the car was falling appart around the engine. LOL
