nope, a side exit exhaust is NOT legal, atleast in Ontario. I've actually been ticketed twice for it. Your exhaust must exit at the rear of the vehicle... I've had a twin side exhaust with no resonator or muffler for almost two years... so i have experience with it.
I know exactly what some one is gonna say: "But what about the Ford lightning or viper or svt stang? They have side exhaust factory!"
I'm aware of that, that is because they are coupes. The exhaust MUST exit a certain distance behind the passenger compartment. Since they are coupe there is plenty of room after the door to the compartment to place an exhaust. The problem is that the SRT is a 4 door car. Therefore, a side exhaust would exit essentially right underneath the rear passenger door. THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT ILLEGAL.
I've asked numerous metro, opp, and mto cops about this and they ALL say the same thing. So take your risk... cops don't seem to bother me cuz it's a PT and they think it's "cool"...
