be carefull with that thing it could be hazerdous to your engine if you dont use it properly and keep your revs up the flame travels back up the exhaust into the engine (not good)

:D I had the same conversation with my buddy on how a flame thrower works.

I was watching a MTV Pimp my ride episode, the one titled, "Matty's Mustang" They installed a flame thrower on the mustang but had to remove it because it was illegal.

Please can some take the time to explain, How it works? :D

Thanks :)

So far as I know... you make a small hole in your exhaust pipe... insert sparky end of spark plug... connect to extra coil in your boot... then when it sparks it ignites the unburnt petrol in your exhaust fumes... and flamethrowerernessness....

You'll need alot of unburnt fuel, i.e. make the car run real rich, which in turn can also rinse oil of the rings in the engine. Some guys use a separate propane feed into the exhaust near the spark plug.

I honestly don't know why the heck someone would want this. Trying to make a 1100cc look bigger perhaps? Flame thrower is illegal, so if you going to do this thing I'd suggest rather using it on a massive engine so you can get away from the cops. :D

Extra coil with sparkplug (sparknuts if u from brakpan) in the xhorst.

Relay switches off ur motor's coil, and switches secondary one on.

Keep ur foot flat and check people behind u skrik.

Lol, my friend had it on his Uno, which is a bit slow...

So driving in the fast lane, with BMW's on his ass, he gooi's the FT and check the BMW's brake hehe
