Here is results of before the NFW exhaust was installed and then with it on.
This is with the full length design with the tailpipes.

Weather was 85 degrees adding 1,500 feet to the 4,000 feet elevation tests were done at
Notice the lower torque comes up sooner and faster now with the end to end system being 3 inch

Design testing of end of tailpipes 2,5 and 8 inch longer then in design 2.
Each additional length to bring end of tailpipes further away from underside reduced sound level in drivers are from mid 80s DBA to 78 DBA at idle but no loss to sound level at the end of tailpipes.

This is a cold start idle. Weather is only 42 degrees so normal to see water vapor until everything gets up to operating temp

H vs X pipe exhaust system

Again in either case you want them to be located as close to collectors as possible
