Sooty tail pipes at one side

Since doing the mods to the car which in now running at stage 4 I'm finding that the tail pipes at the drivers side are getting covered in soot much more compared to the passenger side
Any reason for this, could something be wrong

Won't be anything to do with the engine or mapping as both banks go into one at the mid pipe/front system, will be down to exhaust design, one side probably flows better than the other at the rear.

There has been threads on this before, if you do a search it may offer more advice.

I've found my GTC Titan gives off more soot on the drivers side than passenger side, I assumed it was just how it is and thought nothing else of it!
