    Advice, where should I put my turbo exhaust exit?

    I've included a pic of my turbo setup installed, minus support brackets and a few things, but I am still torn on where to put my exhaust exit.

    Can't decide whether to route it out the side, rear, where the OPAS would be if it were a SeaDoo, or on the inside of the tunnel on the opposite side of the of the OEM outlet like Mark did. The side hull exit lends itself better to current alignment, and wouldn't require any modification to the down-pipe, where the inside tunnel exit would require a small amount to shorten, and angle it inward just slightly.

    Keeping exhaust noise to a minimum is ideal, but I realize that's almost futile running a straight pipe out from the turbo.

    Any and all opinions, suggestions, or ideas are welcome, thanks guys!

    duals baby... duals out the back

    no doubt about it inside the tunnel is gonna be louder to you, the rider...

    BUT... out the side where OPAS is, just doesn't look kosher in my opinion. It's not a vette and it's not a flareside pickup.... side exhaust exit just seems odd to me personally, but it'll work if that's what ya want.

    obviously out the rear can be done with a little work... u've seen my exhaust system and the pods that were built into the hull to contain exhaust tips.

    if you go up higher in the rear then ur aiming alot of it at the bond flage under the rub rail... which works, but that did't particularly work for me aesthetically

    Duals would be ideal but I'd need a new downpipe, and I really like my current one. It would be easiest, and I would prefer to just go straight out the back, ideally on the bend like gprsho Bruce
    Did, but I'm concerned about sealing it if I try that. I'd like to use the riva tip I have out the back, but just don't see it. I may go Baha style angled tube with flap

    what do you guys think of making a downpipe out of a Gibson? Add some jacketing by the turbo flange then water injection angled over to exit via own outlet? I'm liking that!!

    Agreed on all matters, I'd like to just be able to put it straight out the back, but I'm no where near as good as Bruce. So don't think I can pull off a watertight seal at an angle like that.
