The point of exit of an exhaust system will have little to do with performance but may change the sound. The physical size and configuration will have much more effect.

on the right car they are just KILLER cool, another reason for side exhaust would be to get the heat out from under the body ........... I love em and think hotrods and vetts should have them as a standard........... AH but that is just me

I have the Sanderson Jaysters on my '32. The look good and sound nice....but....after 30 minutes they will drive you crazy by the noise and the gas smell will give you a headache.
I'm switching them to rear exiting exhausts with electric cut outs...

Disadvantages: Louder, burn your ankles getting in
Advantages: Looks way cool on the right cars and I'm told it helps prevent fumes from getting in while driving a wagon with the rear window down. However, that isn't the case with mine.

Advantage - look great and you don't have to route exhaust under car where space may be limited.

Disadvatages - burn legs, burn legs, burn legs! At least two times every time I go somewhere with my brother in law.

Guys, thank you to you, all.


But no thanks to side exhausts........though I like strong torque, I like smooth, and quiet torque, and I like my air fresh, and clean.

if one keeps burning legs, which I personally have NEVER done, I think the problem is the person not the side exhaust ........... hint! do not put your legs on the pipes or maybe your legs are just to short, whatever the reason it is not the pipes fault just in case you were wondering.

Another shortcoming of most side mount exhaust systems is that they will remove a significant amount of power from the drivetrain. A friend of mine dyno tested a mid-year Vette with Hooker side mount headers and gained almost 100 hp by switching to an underchassis setup.

I like the Challenger T/A sidepipes look; just exits on the side, not the whole dang pipe.

Four inch chop, four inch channel, twist like a prezet to get in, twist like a pretzel to get out, watch that you don't bang your head, forget to watch where your legs are going when you get out, burn legs. I will be using a side exhaust on my Nashty and will put up with a few more leg burns because they look so great!!!

HUH???
Which way the exhaust left the car made THAT much difference? Could have been a better tube length match-up in the under-car set? Still, I bet the side exhaust looked really cool. Now if he could just find a set of pipes with true equal length and side exit.

There is a primered Chevette around here, with a single pipe coming out of the lower front fender, curves up, and is actually higher than the roof of the car.

I dunno what kind of driving their doing...
