Backfire Kit?

I want to give my truck the sound of a ****** backfire without touching the engine. That 300 is perfectly healthy and I'm not gonna change that,lol. I thought about adding a muffler tip to the tailpipe,and screw a spark plug into it,wire it to a toggle switch and go from there. The reason for the tip is so I can remove it for yearly inspections and such. What do you guys think? Dangerous? Stupid? Better ways of doing it?
Thanks.

What you need is a windshield washer pump to pump gas into the pipe and ignite it with the plug.....10 ft flames. ....or blow up the back of your truck.

I believe there are "Flme Thrower " kits out there.....

Lol,no,I don't want that. If it takes fuel in the tailpiupe with the spark plug,forget it.
"It takes just a little bit to make a lot."
In other words,a small amount of fuel and fire can make alotta boom.

Not flamethrowers.
Something like glasspacks,Except Ford 300's dont have that hotrod sound at 2500 RPMs and above. Plus,I wanted to scare the **** outta the ricers that pull next to me,lol.

Header + Glasspacs.

Headers and glasspacs. Had that on my 73 duster, in the pedal no boom let off twin booms. Just after I got it done and on the road I had to go to a funeral. The others in the funeral procession thought it was entertaining, as your constantly on pedal off pedal, I must have detonated them about 10 times between funeral parlor and the cemetery. It was a bit of a Redneck funeral so no one cared, some actually seemed to appreciate having something other than the reason we where there to talk about.

You could set your timing way of. I had a 305 had a bad timing chain, it wasn't a very powerful motor but everytime I would stomp on the gas and let off it would let out a LOUD backfire! I scared the crap out of everyone at my high school. It even shot a little flame out the tailpipe. Because it was with the stock exhaust that exited behind the drivers side tire and at night once I stomped it and let it off and saw it flash fire out the side!

I hate to say it but I kinda miss that old 305 just because it could do that.

/\I have a pc pushmower that shuts off when ya let go of the handle and theres a flywheel brake. Well, if ya let it go just enough that it cuts the spark but no flywheel brake and pull the safety handle before the engine stops it backfires.

I think it's carb'd or f.i. that makes the difference.

Could shoot your eye out....

if it has a manual choke just pull it out for a few seconds and push it back in...it will back fire!!! Might blow off the muffler...may not....not exactly the best thing to do for your engine or exhaust!!!

Its an automatic with F.I. I know of the key on then off trick,but that will tear something up. Which is why I wanted a muffler tip setup. After reading the replies,I think I'll save my truck from the abuse and not do it. Thanks anyways.
Lesson learned.
