D90 spits on chevy

My D90 parked next to the tahoe in the garage spits on its 20" rims every morning out of the exhaust. I think it is pissed off. Im pulling the motor soon for something better anyways, but is this just caveman technology or is something not normal? thanks

I think the truck is rightly displaying disgust and indignation.

LOL my heart agrees with the rest, it's just upset at the mall-cruiser chevy.

On a more technical note, how many miles you drive it every day?

If those 20" rims are sporting some 39s, 42s, 46s or even 49s (54s anyone), then I think you need to treat your D90 some manners

Hmmm, might just be condensation in the exhaust, but if you drive that much you're not going to have any sitting water in the muffler. Original exhaust or a replacement, and does it currently have a weep hole anywhere?

I think you're fine, Shane. If I'm not mistaken, water is a normal byproduct of combustion in a gas engine. I used to have a pick up, that when tuned right, would have a nearly constant stream of water dripping out of it like a leaky faucet when idling. I think it diminishes as the engine heats up and the gases don't have a chance to condense before reaching the end of the tailpipe.

You could modify your exhaust so it points down rather than out to the side. The Borla exhaust points down rather than to the side. That might fix your issue.

It's really not an issue of the angle of the tailpipe, you're still going to get water condensing up in front of the axle. You would need to drill a hole in the lowest portion of the muffler or tailpipe in front of that arch in order to let it drain. But if you drive the truck often, you're going to blow out and dry the water pretty effectively. It's only if the truck sits a lot or mainly drives very short distances that you have to worry.

Oh I know that. I just mean so it doesn't spit on his 20"s. Instead it would spit on the floor.

You could always back it in and see if it still spits out the other side

The D or the Chevy? If it's the D, how many miles are you driving per week? When was the air filter replaced?
