Flames mean unburnt fuel in the exhaust system. If your V6 is flaming then you wanna get it seen to Dash. The air/fuel ratio must be slightly off,and fuel will damage the cat if its going down the manifold.
yes that was my post,it only has a little flame coming out because when you floor it over 4500rpm there is alot of fuel being pumped in there,when you let go of the accelerator for a fraction of a sec fuel is still being pumped in and your engine does not need all that petrol so when you tap the accelerator it burns all excesive fuel in your exhaust!!!think i have got that right if it dont make sence its because i have had a bit to drink because i have 2 flat tyres so its a night in for me
gotta try tht!
im still into the turn off ignition, wait a sec or 2, turn on ignig....BANG and huge flame.
anyway, gotta have a carb though! hehe, can scare people at the bus stop easy!
We do it at work with their vehicles, Get up to around 3000rpm on straight road, take foot off throttle, turn off ignition, turn back on to see large flame and huge bang. Longer you leave ignition off louder bang and bigger flame. Do it on straight road cause you momentarily lose power-steering whilst ignition is off. Dont do it if youve got a cat fitted
Natural flames (i.e. no flamer kit) are caused when the driver lifts off the throttle at high revs.
This is because the air meter accounts for a load of air, but the butterfly is snapped shut, meaning only some of the air actually enters the cylinders, but this air contains an amount of fuel in proportion to what the air-meter has told the ECU (too much)!
This fuel cannot burn as there is not enough oxygen present, this is also true all the way down the exhaust pipe, but as the fuel vapour exits the tail-pipe, it meets oxygen in the air and ignites because of the heat.
Flames are un-common with standard exhausts because the CAT treats the unburnt fuel in an attempt to reduce emissions (so the fuel will not burn).
Get a rev limiter on your car and set it to hard cut. Dial inthe revs at say 3000rpm and go for a drive. With a straight through exhaust system u can have two foot blue flames out the rear and it popping and spitting like an irrate girlfriend
I must have said this before, but my mate got a straight thro exhaust with all the little boxes and silencers taken out, just the rear box on the back. This was on his old E30 320i Six cylinder BMW. It took 4* petrol and after kaning the living POO out of the car and downshifting gears this thing used to throw out tiny blue explosions out of the exhaust. I scared off a few of those people who drive up you A*SE with this car. And it used to make a great Popping noise
mine pops and spits the odd flame under heavy acceleration on the gear change, it good, the old 16v lump on the standard chip used to pop and spit alot more (too much) after the cat as taken out, now with the williams engine and the hill power chip it isnl;t as bad, guess the fueling is more accurate (i hope)
Yeah anti lag is *kind of* the same thing as full throttle gearchange; it keeps the fuel going when you change gear, which goes into the cylinder and straight out again, causing an explosion in the manifold, thus keeping the turbo spinning as if you still had your foot down. I hear it can be a bit disconcerting if youre not used to the car wanting to keep going on when youve let off the accelerator!
Visit http://www.lancerregister.comwww.lancerregister.com go to the forum and to the for sale section and check out flamer kits are great, or something like that, there are some great pics and videos included!
That first vid reminds me of the Blair Witch Project and the second one is even more bizarre, especially the subliminal image of someone having a pint for a split second at the end! Weird stuff, but yeah that Sierra does flame quite nicely.
Adam - have you had flames out of yours yet? Plenty I would have thought...
Wongys still got his, he keeps dreaming about something Jap and turbocharged for next year. Leighs just returned from the dead after breaking his leg and going mysteriously quiet for a couple of months. Mines just blown up on the rollers at BB so its gonna have to be taken apart to see what the damage is. So no surprises in the world of Clios mate!
a mate of mine in an Evo 5 got the anti lag system installed. Spit out nice flame at nite but I heard that the turbo can get a bit banged up with several thousands of Kms due to being on full boost n so forth all the time....
