side or rear exhaust

My wife complains about the exhaust smell in her cloths after a ride in the topless fj40 cruiser /350 chevy. I'm putting in a new motor and thinking about rerouting the exhaust. It is currently set up with duals exiting the rear of the fj40. Would it help if I routed them to exit out the side behind the doors, or do you think it really would not make a difference?

The side exhaust was WORSE in my case. Route it out the rear with a turn down at the end.

Route it out the back and down. Fuel injection will help the smell too.

Behind the driver's rear wheel out the side. I do not get any fumes or smell inside with the top off or on. OUt the back makes it suck back inside as the pressure is lower right behind the rig going down the road. The out the rear side pulls it away before it can come back in.

DS behind the rear tire (side outlet)

I have had more troubles with a turndowned rear exhaust than I have had with the side exhaust.

Out the rear recycles it back into the cab..
