Of course, I am not endorsing *** blasters in any way, and these instructions are meant for their product. Buyer beware, in my area this will get you some down time and your car impounded. Besides, you need the little electronic thingy mabob to control everything so you won't grenade the motor. Good luck.

On one of the "Trucks" shows a few months ago showed how to hook this up. I haven't seen it lately and have been looking for it.

I think your way is only a one time deal. Let me know if you get two out of it.

KIKAIDA

I'd rather put nitro tanks on my back and fly like Kikaida (the japanese hero).

Hi everybody, this is my first post! anyway, I've looked into the flamethrowers myself and as I understand it, they come in 3 stages depending on the size of flame and dangerous they are. first thing to know though is they are not legal ever on the street in any state. all statges have a spark plug located in the tailpipe. 1st is dumping raw fuel through the pipes, 2nd and third is introducing fuel to the pipes. Propane i've heard is the easiest because it's already a gas, otherwise you have to install an injector behind the spark. other fuels commonly used are gasoline and kerosene. Kerosene is garanteed to make 20 ft flames, so watch your shins!

i was talkin to my Grandpa about exhaust, and he was talkin bout glass packs in his Bel Air, and i asked him if he ever had flames come out of the exhaust, he said no but one of his friends did, so i asked how'd he do it? and he told me that used spark plugs and gas....doesnt sound very safe does it? but if u wanna go for it, go for it, but if u catch somin on fire don't blame me

I have heard that if you hook up plugs to coils and hit the button when rev the engine and you let off the gas, you can shoot flames. I have also heard that you cannot have an exhaust system with a cat system on to make it work.

I have just finished installing this into my '69 454 Camaro.

http://www.hotrodsofnorco.com/products.htm#flame

Its a fairly well put together kit (though I broke the top of one of the coils from over tightening connection nut) and the instructions make installation a simple afternoon job - assuming you can do basic welding. It works! I am not sure I would suggest that this is safe in any way shape or form, but I can now shoot flames out of my sidepipes (yes this is even more dangerous). The site suggests 20-30' flames can be produced - I cannot verify this yet and really need to do some tests in the dark but depending on how you handle the combination of throttle, ignition (or in my case mag cutout) and afterburner fire button I have managed to produce some moderate size yellowish flames and some much bigger but visually impressive blue flames together with a substantial bang. I'm sure this is terribly bad for my exhaust and my hearing but it's fun. Don't expect to be able to produce jets of continuous flame with this kit. It relies on you cutting the ignition when you want to produce flames (and using the few moments of unignited gas that gets sucked through the carb before the motor stops) so you only have a short time before you have to switch off the flames and switch back on the ignition (or stall and look foolish). With practice you can produce a blast of flame and keep running like you never stopped. One negative. The kit does not ship with a secondary 'arm' or safety switch. Not installing one would probably be pushing the stupidity Gods too far I'll post photos another day if I can take any good ones.
