i have been toying with the idea of putting an exhaust flame thrower on my car.

before you start yelling rice, its illegal and will burn/melt my rear bar, i just want to say i only want to do this for a little fun before i install the motec to fix my fuel and tune issues. and i will be putting my old rear bar on.

i have done a google search and a search on here but didnt find what i was after.

with the current set up in the ef it runs quite rich. give it a rev and a lot of black smoke out the back.

the question i have is will just running a simple set up of a switch, coil and sparkplug be enough to make a flame (not after a huge flame and i dont want to run an ignition cut). also will the flames travel up the exhaust or will the flow of exhaust gasses be enough to keep it from travelling up the exhaust?

cheers

get them on ebay. weld a nut over a hole in exhaust, screw spark plug into hole ,run wires to a switch in car and to power and earth. thats just from memory so could be a bit off.

if your smart you'll make it look like a 2nd o2 sensor and it would be hard to pick up on it.

i think it'd be better having the sparkplug in the end of the exhaust, less chance of having a flame going back toward the engine.

i know an exhaust fitter, i think he says that he'd use a stove igniter. that way you dont need coilpacks and that. just a 12>240 inverter and they spark fairly regularly and fast. i think

that sounds like a good way to do a sort of stealth install, easyier to hide.

my mate used to have this vb commodore and he could turn off his car while driving at 80km, then start it up again and shoot a flame about 2m long out the back of his exhaust, he called it the "keybanger". haha, probably dont try that. I thought i'd share that so you all can laugh at his stupidity as much as i still do.

keybangers i use to do that with a very old v8 petrol truck,drive at 60k's turn key off for 20sec or so and BANG get the weirdest looks from other motorists,finally the exhaust fell off but that didn't stop me!!

Why only old cars? And why do you think he'd use it in traffic? He wants to have some fun in his backyard, if you have nothing useful to add, why post at all?

First cruise i went on in Newcastle there was a guy with an EA who had a flamethrower exhaust, i'll see if i can get in touch with anyone who knew the guy ;)

Go for it, it's all fun and games till you get busted.

I doubt it'll go up the exhaust, as the exhaust gases are flowing out, and it's not like your block is going to be hurt by the flame anyways!

I'd consider doing it if my exhaust didn't end in front of the diff which is just infront of the fuel tanks!
