A different side exhaust question, I think

Scrolled through the various posts but didn't see this one. Has anyone done side exhaust with both outlets routed to the passenger side? Or is it even possible? 66 coupe.

I think the biggest issue is going to have the needed real estate underneath the car. I’m thinking the driveshaft may get in the way.

For a while I thought about building a 3” single exhaust with a transverse muffler behind the rear axle. I was planning on 2.25” off each header forming a Y to the 3” pipe. The 3” has the same CSA or very close to two 2.25” pipes. This would weigh less then a dual exhaust but still flow the same. You would or could put it out the right side. Sometimes I wish I had done this.

LeMans style I shouldn't have removed without a better plan

The answer is yes, it's been done. I've seen it with a nascar style 2-into-1 here:

Yeah there's a lot to like about that car. The right mix of ratty and racy.

I don’t see any practical reason for it but anyone who can make a H pipe or X pipe can make it happen.

If I was going to do this I'd fabricate a 2-into-1 header collector pipe and run a 3-inch pipe down the right side of the car to a muffler with inlet and outlet on the front side, the a round to oval adapter off the muffler and a 135* bend to the "tailpipe".

It has fewer restricting bends from not going over the axle and around the tank. Then dumping out the PS only keeps the noise level down, especially with that window up.

I think the key word here is "practical". I can't say that I've ever seen an early Mustang with an exhaust system that hung lower than the one on Shadow Dancer. I might see it on a track only car, but never on a serious street car. I can't tell from the photos whether the exhaust clears a sub-frame connector on the passenger side. Having to choose single side exhaust over a set of sub-frame connectors would be a "deal buster" for me.

If someone uses the 'vert inner rockers then they don't need sfc's and the exhaust would be just a bit lower that the sfcs would have been.
