Chocolate Pickle: Unless one of the pipes is the air intake. In that case, this sucker is unbalanced, with the thrust all on one side. Ye Gods. (As if there wasn't already enough wrong with this entire idea.)
zippy: I suppose this is as good a time as any to share a link to a ... modified scooter.
And by modified, I mean a scooter with nitrous and a stroker engine with a 23000rpm redline.
Because the intake tube(s) also expel gas during the exhaust cycle of the engine, most valveless engines have the intakes facing backwards so that the thrust created adds to the overall thrust, rather than reducing it.
