    Which is better to daily drive on? The car has dumps right now and it's hard to decide if I want to change it or not

    Personal preference and personal tolerance.

    Dumps generally cause a bit of drone depending on the rest of the exhaust setup and can cause a bit of fumes to roll back in at stop lights. If neither of this have bothered you before then no reason to change other then you may like the look of tailpipes better.

    Personally I love dumps as they hide the exhaust and generally have a deeper richer tone.

    It would be different... I'd probably angle the dumps to push the smoke show out more

    I like the look of the tips out the back, I also suspect it's quieter to the driver. On my current car when I had the wastegate dump angled up it was decently loud but I noticed when I put a different one on with the pipe facing the ground the noise sort of resonates a lot more and makes more noise / smell. The smell is really bad man. Not the same car or application but the idea is the same.

    On something primarily for racing then dumps are pretty cool.

    Dumps get old fast.
    the loudness/resonence never goes away.

    1 vote for rear exit ;)

    I'm starting to think that a rear exit would be best in order to daily drive my car (that has the emissions delete)

    I've got long tubes, no cats and Flo-Pro V-Force muffler (like a flowmaster) It droned quite a bit with pipes out the back. I chopped off the pipes without turn downs and was louder than loud. Then I was smart and put turn downs at a 45 degree angle and the exhaust doesn't drone at all. It's actually really quiet till you get on it. Every combination can get different results
