Exhaust outlet flow

So I was at the boat trying to fix some things, broke a few things-- normal day.

I did notice something interesting.
My exhaust after the water muffler goes up into a siphon loop (guess that's the right phrase?)

The starboard hose has good water flow but the port side just has a trickle. Is this OK? I assume the leg going to port just doesn't get as much water at the Y, or maybe the hose is screwed up.

Will try to post a video.
