Re: Side Exit Exhaust?
Interesting- I'd like to see the inspection code on that. Being a former licensed inspection mechanic in PA, I can tell you that was total BS.
I had side exit exhaust on TWO of my street-driven, PA inspected (not by me) cars with no issues.
I'm not trying to be argumentative, and it's not you I'm annoyed with. It's these so-called mechanics that reinterpret the inspection code at will...
To the original poster- I actually built mine out of bends from the speed shop (easiest way to get mandrel bends). I ran it out straight from that section before the over-the-axle bend, and put half a 90 bend (cut at an angle) on the end of it to turn it slightly down and back.
It can be quite loud on the highway (depending on RPMs and if you're running next to a Jersey wall...), but most times it's fine.
As a side funny story- on the way back from SDAC8 I got pulled over with the car, and the trooper asked me to please shut it off because it was blowing gravel all over his boots... :)
