Exclamation exhaust flame throwers

hi people, first let me introduce myself, my name is yan and i live in canada, and im addicted to cars ! my next will be a mach 1, but for now i want to install a flamethrower kit on the gto, i search around the web since many weeks now, its almost more complicated than it seems, all kits are basic, so you need to rev the engine kill it to allow gas and air to flmae into the tailpipes, but of course you wash your engine with fuel!!!! so im thinking of injecting fuel into the exhaust (about 1foot before the spark plug) with an electronic fuel injector or a cold start valve, but it will only inject fuel....no air at all only fuel and emissions gases so my bet is it will not flame because the mixture wont be good, anyone already done experimentation with it before, because i dont want to damage the engine in ANY case and injection is not a problem but i dont know if i can flame this way

any advices ??

Check out the eBay link for the flamethrower kits.

eBay Flamethrower Kits

Here is another company (AutoLoc) that actually sells a complete kit... AutoLoc Flamethrower Kit

Sounds like you're the pioneer. I thought maybe you could drill a hole in the tailpipe so it would draw some air in sorta like a blowtorch does. If the mix is too good, the fire would be blue, & if there was not enough air (too rich), they'd be yellow.

lots of stuff on the net if your interested... i have seen setups for propane injection and even gasoline injection. got to remember tho that you are literaly playing with explosives... a few old timers have told me their experiances with em, and they included mufflers that blew open. also the kits that inject fuel are better. anything that requires you to turn the ignition system off is not good for your rings, also the fuel gets in your oil... or so i am told, anyways i never done it. but have thought about installing it in my truck not for looks, but to stop people from tailgating me..

Mate, I've set up a fuel injector 150mm from my exhaust outlet but injecting alcohol into a second pipe installed over the actual exhaust. Result ? A nice, coned, deep red and blue flame with a sweet roaring sound and the lovely smell of alcohol that makes everybody think I'm running a completely mad engine ! Advantages ? Totaly isolated from the fuel system, reassuringly safe, easy to dismantle if needed, no ignition cutting so no risk of hydraulic surges in the engine... Perfect ! The second pipe system allows the small amount of oxygen alcohol needs to burn and it looks better than ANY I've seen on the streets... Try some experiments, nice stuff sometimes happens.


YES..we have a filter for profanity.

Using this kind of language in your FIRST post ( or any post ) is not encouraging. I edited it out.

Please refrain from the profanity........

you might want to ask 98 snake eater on the flame thrower forum before you do that but I doubt he'll have a problem with it
