J.M., You will also notice the exhaust pressure is more than likely higher,greater, on one side than the other. This is normal.

Remember, the left outlet is closer to the muffler inlet from the engine--the pipe after the cat that bends into the muffler--so the exhaust gas has less opportunity to expand & cool as it does going to the outlet on the other end of the muffler, on the right side.

I don't know how many F-car nuts out there feel the exhaust with their hands when the car idles . I do . I usually like to smell it for gas or oil and compare the color of the fumes coming out from the left side exhaust to the fumes coming out from the right side exhaust.
Well during my routine yesterday I notice a significant difference in temperature between the exhaust gases coming from the left (hot) from the fumes coming from the right exhaust (cold) !?
Is it an indication of future engine trouble or is one side hotter than the other because it fires first. I hope I made sense.
