    "Angiestars" on here has side exhaust and runs flowmaster 40s...that is the setup i would do if i did side exhaust, but it prolly doesn't flow all that well.

    WEll you have an o/r pipe. Which means all the fumes will exit at your door :puke: instead of the back of your car. ;] GL with having the window down lol. :slap:

    *behind the door. It would smell less then running dumps I'll tell you that much.

    I think side exit exhaust with the SVO skirts is pretty damn unique, although rather quiet with the borlas that come with the kit you can fab up your own side exit using whatever mufflers you want and just a 45* or 90* bend.

    I say get the skits and buy the tip then make you own exhaust, it will be louder then all the other side exit kits and will have your own sound to it.

    oh one other downside is the lower ground clearence.

    clearance is a downside... I have the Roush sideskirts, custom Xpipe, and Flowmaster 40's. Its loud at idle, but not too loud. :)

    I had it on one of my old cars - it sounded okay and looked really neat but the fumes gave me a headache.

    side exhaust kicks ass looks wise, but flow wise it sucks. I think the way to do it would be to get SVO side skirts and have a exhast shop make an exhaust that doesnt do the 180* thing. Im assuming that would work? clearance would be a bitch buuuut itd be soo :pimp2: Ive always wondered, in the undertray of sn95's is there like an indentation for 'spot' for the mufflers?? if that makes any sense
