How can you produce a wanted flame out of the exhaust when you shift or floor the gas pedal? is there any way?

Put a cup of gas in the muffler.

You can do it pretty easy. Just gotta drill a hole in your exhaust pipe and place a spark plug in there. Then use a rich gasoline. Its probably not the best idea though because
A) You'll get pulled over the second a cop sees flames shooting out your tailpipe

B) You'll be scorching the bumper of those behind you

C) You'll melt your own bumper in a week

A little more to it than that...

On a carburated car, you do wire a spark plug about 6 inches from exhaust exit, and run it to a switch which sparks the plug. Then as you rev up the motor, you will get more unburned gasoline in the exhaust, thus igniting it and shooting flame. But its very dangerous both to the motor and the car.

On a car with a ECU onboard, it will destroy your engine to put a traditional flamethrower setup on it. If you want the same effect, hook up a propane tank and wire it through the exhaust pipe.

I know there's kits out there that actually have it do it like that.. ofcourse it goes off a switch though.

My old subaru was carbed, I would roll at about 30, shut the ignition off, count to 10, turn it back on, nice loud backfire and a 6-8 foot flame out the exhaust. This does do damage to the exhaust after a while.

My civic has a problem with the exhaust valves so it blows fuel out the cylender during compression...so when I drive it hard (after the exhaust is hot) I get a pop and about a 3 foot flame from the muffler between gears. It looks kinda cool at night but it blows soot all over my bumper and it cant be good on my way expensive cat-back.

I blew a manifold off my ranger by killing the engine for a few seconds, then firing it back up...

if you watch alot of japanese tuner vehicles, they pretty much all shoot flames. i agree that on a honda or something, its worthless, but on a turbocharged monster, its an awesome site...

i saw a supercharged mustang doing donuts blowing flames out every once in a while at these races i went to. i almost pissed my pants in awe, hearing the supercharger whine and seeing tire smoke and flames everywhere. but yeah that was running pipes from the headers back, loud as hell. too bad those races dont go on anymore ever since some greek dude brought like 50 of his family members (no joke i swear to god like 50) to watch him race his damn tiburon and lost control, didnt stop, and launched his car into a dried up pond. theres been security at that place ever since. sorry to hijack this thread. yeah flames and stuff kick ass

They make ALS (Anti-Lag System) for some cars, or so I've heard. It keeps the turbine spinning so there's no lag, but obviously it couldn't be all that great on the engine and it'll backfire alot. I need to look it up some more.

Edit: I love Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-lag

Cool, never heard of that. Is it just a system by itself or are some of the new rotary cars coming with it?

Agreed! 110 mph + down shift + straight 3 inch pipe = WOOSH!

free flowing exhaust andrunning a little rich works great. at night the underside of my f250 is like a light show because the dual exhaust shoot an 8 inch flame out back and forth. its kinda cool and im thinking of redoing the exhaust so it exits on the passenger side.away from the gas tank lol. this is only at idle or when the revs drop after being hard on the gas.
