Engine timing question

So the lude im getting has an f22a. The guy says it drives fine (which it does) but needs to be timed and i should only take the backroads home until i do so. First off id like to ask what harm can be done to the engine if i drive it in this state? Also my buddies got a timing light to do the timing, is this hard and time consuming? One last thing, hes got only the header and downpipe on the car, rest of the pipe is off until put on, my question is aside from being loud, will this do damage to the engine as well? thanks!

Re: Engine timing question

Let me google that for you

The open downpipe is worse for you than the car. Theres a reason the exhaust gases are routed away from the cabin.
