From what I have read on here it shouldn't hurt anything. However if you are that concerned about it you could always use something to cover them.

It won't hurt anything but it may blow soot on your truck when you start it up which can be a mess.

The drill bit is the best solution, it doesn't take a large hole 1/8-3/16" should be plenty.

nope i drilled on in mine still sounds the same. dont worry some one would have to stick a hose in your stacks to get it to fill to the turbo. and thats only while sitting if your running your truck the exhaust temp would evaporate any water that got close so just put a hole in the elbow and forget about it
