    Hello,

    I happened to go into a map, where the modder set the temperature below 15°C (59°F); the Gavril D-15 default pickup truck blowing water vapor out the stock single, right sideways facing exhaust pipe-- under the tailgate. Out of pure curiosity, I changed up the muffler arrangements (since I could see the vapor, why not?) just to see what it would do. That's when I noticed the issue with the side pipes muffler option on the default vehicle.

    Being a mod map, I made sure that wasn't the problem, disabled all my mods, and just set the East Coast USA map down to 0°C / 32°F, to get the vapor going in the cold air.

    Repeated my steps with all mods deactivated, and I replicated the issue. The D-15 Pickup blows the vapor out the proper direction (i.e.-- through the pipes that are visually displayed) in stock pipe, sport pipes (dual out the back), and empty (straight out the back of the exhaust-manifold under the truck). But with side pipes, the exhaust comes straight out the back of the manifold (right side only)-- as if there was an exhaust leak at the headend of the right-side pipe.

    I accidentally fell upon this, this past week, opening the default pickup on a map with a low temperature.
    Before that, I had no idea the vehicles in BeamNG even emitted vapor from the exhausts in cold weather!

    I only tested it on the Gavril D-15 variant, I suppose it could be with other Gavril variants, or even other vehicles with exhaust/muffler modification options, as well.

    I'm just curious if this is a known issue already, or you weren't aware of it, and that this might be a good thing to know for the next hotfix and/or version of the game.

    Thank you for your time.

    All seems to be working normally on my end, did you install the "V8 side exhaust flanges" to go with the muffler (exhaust slot inside the engine)? the standard Y-pipe will not connect to the side pipes. The Offroad, Drag and Track configurations have this setup by default

    Hi,
    Nope I did not. Thank you for pointing that out. I never saw that as an option, but that sure makes a lot of sense. I’ll check it out and then I’m sure it’s going to work just fine.
