all for dumping it after the muffler. No tips to clean and no need to worry about smashing it offroading.

Well think of your application first, Mainly on road use with mild off roading, like mine, go side exit. But if its going to be a more extensive off road truck after the rear wheel or dumped. Side exit has a greater chance of getting ripped off. Or if you dont care, do side exit, like me!
