side exhaust Sign In

I have seen a lot of street drag cars with side exhausts, mostly in nitrous cars. What is the purpose of it? and what advantages over a straight pipe does it have? and is it done to nitrous cars only?

Less pipe, less backpressure.

Most state laws require extending past rear wheels though.

That's what the exhaust manifold, Converter and muffler do.

A mild decrease in backpressure can increase horsepower. Too little can be a problem.
