jbp dom 3 xtr w meth!

Default car shoots out water on rainy days

So I have dom 3 xtr built block ewg headers meth etc.

Anyway, on days it pours really hard it seems like there is water getting in my exhaust system somehow. When I start my car it shoots out a crap ton of water. Even if I start the car later when its hot and my car will sound weird for a little bit like my exhaust system is clogged with water and then after a little while it goes back to normal. I'm just wondering if theres a way the water is getting in to the exhaust. I have the greddy ti exhaust and since it's angled im wondering if water can just get in through the exhaust, but it doesn't seem probable that it would clog up my exhaust system and my car feels like its running like crap until I drive it for a good 30 minutes or so and then it goes back to normal.

find the lowest point in your exhaust where water will get trapped and drill a tiny hole on the bottom, like 1/8th or 1/16 of an inch. Ive had friends in northern states have to do that before.

Lol they dont call them sewer pipes for nothing but just like was already mentioned to find the lowest point on the exhaust and drill a tiny hole. Also every once in a while take a paperclip to unclog the hole u drilled.
