Straight from the manifold or the turbo, I think.
No room for a muffler, and if you did run the exhaust far enough to the rear to get it through
A muffler, I don't think you'd bother routing it back up to the cowl.
But, who knows ?

I would say the engine is running backwards.
The effort to route the exhaust through the air cleaner hole would be monumental, all of the electrical system would have to be remove to another location, something would have to be done with the exhaust manifold to get the discharge in the right spot and never mind the heat coming off the pipes would likely melt the window gasket and dash pad.
I've lugged an OM352 down to the point of having it run backwards a couple times, kind of freaked me out the first time to see a gray cloud coming out of the intake pre-filter.
You don't want the engine to do this for long, the oil pump isn't likely moving any oil either and you're bearing are going to get a little dry after a while.

That's crazy, there's more odd to this than the exhaust stack. There would be a lot of heat in a small confined area before it exits the cowl. I too have had diesels run backwards and the instant thought is how the hell do I shut it down. Well I see it now and it seems pretty odd.

You can't fix stupid.
I have found it advisable not to give too much heed to what people say when I am trying to accomplish something of consequence. Invariably they proclaim it can't be done. I deem that the very best time to make the effort.

If that indeed is the exhaust stack, whether or not it is right or wrong, ugly or otherwise, my thought would be to put a turn out on the top to keep any water from entering the stack, from rain or anything.
Water in straight vertical stacks sometimes look cool, but they puke crap out when started, and in the system can hurry up corrosion.
