I've seen my own 454 do this lots of times. I don't have a cat. My 3" pipes
are not kinked. My engine is perfectly timed, and the mixture is not too
lean. It just happens.

A blocked up catalitic convertor or exhaust system will cause this
condition. But when this is the case performance is poor due to the
engine not being able to breath.
I have seen catalitic convertors come apart and the pieces get
trapped in the muffler causing the same condition. Kinked pipes will
also create back preassure and heat things up.
