My twin 38mm dump out of the hood... and yeah you have to wash your clothes after driving it hard, the people at my office tell me i smell like oil lol. Plus it spits carbon/fuel residue all over the windshield.

Why not stick a tractor flap on the end of the tube? Simple solution, unless you're trying to be more graceful than that

It's an unwritten rule but basically you can't do hood exit exhaust unless your atleast over 700whp #True Story

But yeah as another person said above it seems like it's the fastest route to $1000 you've ever spent, lol.

But, if you DO choose to go that route I'd just get some kind of silicone cap to put over the tube when you know there's going to be a crazy downpour. My ultimate vote though would be to have a titanium dump tube made.

Edit: You people are brave running straight exhausts in California lol.....let alone in general. I'm going to be running a test pipe myself, but if it reeks that'll be the quickest thing getting swapped out ever lol. I ran a catless downpipe on my STi and I couldn't stand it.........It made windows-down driving unbearable and all of my clothes would be permeated with the stink of gasoline......And yes, the car was professionally dyno tuned. I call bullshit every time someone comes along and says their catless setup doesn't ever smell....
It doesn't smell if you run E85 Just corn fumes
