Side exit exhaust?

Need new exhaust, was just an idea of a side exit exhaust on a 4th gen?

was wondering about any comments on it, if its been done, how loud itll be. etc.

did some searching and couldn't find anything for preludes. (here / google)

Re: Side exit exhaust?

I don't think you could really get it to route to the side properly with anything but the smallest diameter piping. If you find a way, you'll have to rely on the small amount of space up the middle to fit whatever muffler/resonator you choose, if you choose. Even then though, the Prelude sits pretty low as it is, so if you're lowered at all you'd have to worry about scraping I'm sure, except when you crush an exhaust pipe you can't just go un-crush it.

Give it a shot though, what the hell. I'd like to see it.

Re: Side exit exhaust?

If you have the money, sure it can be done.
But will it pass inspection in your town?

Altering how exhaust exits is a tricky thing. If yours exited at the side to start with, and you go further back... no biggie, but moving closer to the cabin may be verboten or worse.. a cop magnet.

Re: Side exit exhaust?

Other people also say almost impossible with how low a lude sits

Re: Side exit exhaust?

I'm glad this thread came about because I have secretly been working in an idea for this on my 5th gen, and have it come out the end of the passenger side skirt.

Some of the issues I was looking at would be Fuel lines ? I think they run on driver side but haven't looked about passenger side, heat from exhaust + fuel line = disaster.

vehicles of reference would be:

Ford Lightning, obviously it is a truck, but exhaust does come out of the side. Tried to get a look at the under belly of that.

Another would be Ken Block's Ford Fiesta from Gymkhana 2or3 forget which one. It's a great video, but they show a snip it of the exhaust coming out the side. It's wrapped in sheet metal plate it seems and out the side skirt.

Another not vehicle but pipe option would be stolen from NASCAR. THere exhaust pipes are rectangular and flat, so that could be the best option for a lowered car. Haven't actually looked to see if it is actual available, but that would work perfect if you could just find one. Or have some one fabricate one, you would only need like 1.5ft of rectangle pipe. Or find an oval pipe.

Hope that helps. I ultimately think it's possible I have a CAT but or resonator . after the cat on the 5th it curves towards the passenger side anyway. Instead if turning it back to the rear, just let it go from there straight out the side skirt. Side skirt would require modification obviously, but id think it's actually more reasonably possible than people think... Unless again, fuel lines are in the way lol.

If you google ford lightning exhaust & Nascar exhaust. you can see what I'm talking about. This is actually Ford Focus from gymkhana 4 I was talking about

Re: Side exit exhaust?

My friend has a Spec-V Sentra that has a side exhaust right in front of the passenger rear wheel. It's not a one-off either, supposedly it's pretty popular.

I can try to remember to ask him tomorrow the details, but the reason I didn't bring it up before is because his car's stock height is way higher than mine, stock height.


Or you could do what Mobsta did and stick it out the side of the front bumper, straight off the header :D

Re: Side exit exhaust?

I had a friend with a lowered miata run side exhaust. He used the oval tubing.

Re: Side exit exhaust?

Considered then abandoned.

The reasons are simple.
1. You have 4 lift points for your tire jack to go, two of which are located at a relatively precarious position for a side exhaust, in front of the rear wheels.
2. People are dumb enought to get caught on the exhaust tip, trip and bust their face open.
3. Speedbumps
4. Flat tires
5. Bends mess up your exhaust flow.
6. No sensible hanging points, unless you wanna spend money making some
7. Because I want A PAIR of side exhausts, and that is equally expensive.

While i think most of these can be overlooked, if your goal is to save money, these will be your hurdles.... Aside #7, i need the duals

yeah i dont think those are really issues as much as they are a nag to certain people. you could cut it flush (Like the ford above) and you wouldnt have issues about "Tripping"

its def possible, but heat and hangers would be the bigger issues, unless you rely on the mid hanger and the side skirt if you run it through.

Re: Side exit exhaust?

Forgot the Black soot ring the rear bumper gets from running rich or turbo. No bueno.

Everything in NYC is exhaust violations. Chrome, noise level, backfiring, and my personal favorite, catback jutting out 2-4 inches past the bumper, in some crazy 45 degree angle, like its the HKS / BLITZ website

Re: Side exit exhaust?

There are ground clearance issues with having the exhaust on the side (hot rod style) the undercarriage of the prelude just isn't made for it. Few things to consider before doing an extreme exhaust set up is 1. You can't hear shiiiiit 2. 9/10 times you will get pulled over the second a cop sees you. I've been pulled over by cops a block infront of me, they literally got out of their car and stopped all traffic to walk over to me to tell me to pull over in front of them to give me an exhaust ticket. It gets annoying around a while.

That'll depend on how many mufflers/resonators you can fit before the exit.

Less pipe, but adding a 90 bend? Trade off at best. More restrictive at worst.

Re: Side exit exhaust?

Ken Blocks car is a Fiesta, not a Focus.


Side exit is possible, but won't turn out clean and has more cons than pros. Yes, it would be stupid loud with the lack of extra resonators and a muffler. Cops would love you.

Even oval tubing would be a challenge since it would need to cross beneath the subframe.


Exiting behind the back end of the side skirt would potentially get in the way of trailing arm movement and limit the tire/wheel options.

Prelude's have a far different undercarriage vs those other cars mentioned. Not nearly as much room.

Keeping the car raised, and a 2" exhaust could work...
