I have a modified off road lt4000. Will it hurt if I'm running it with the stock muffler under water ?

no it wont hurt it, it might be better than a straight pipe because the water has more to go through to get to the block lol

Generally, no. Sorta. It's not really what I would call "adviseable", but will probably be okay. Small chance that if the engine were to stall, it could take on some water.

Yeah plus one on that, but if the motors running its not gonna go in the engine. Stacks are kinda like insurance that you don't get any in the engine. Plus they make your mower sound cool.

i took the exhaust on mine and took the pipe out of the muffler than flipped the exhaust upside down so it pointed up. and bought a new racing muffler that fit for that purpose. i should add a flap to keep rain out but i cant find a place close to me that sells one

As long as it points down water wont be able to get into it if its off unless you tip it on one side. If its one of those canister types that come right out of the exhaust port it might give you a hard time because its level with the exahust port.
