Flames! Exhaust advice.. Help

Hi, i've searched the other forums and other sites online, couldn't find anything.

So, i think i may shoot a little flamage out of my exhaust at wot. I haven't actually seen this but i have no cats and turn downs. At Wot it makes like a rapid popping noise like in the begining of this video and i'm pretty sure its not the rev limiter because it happens far below what i programed it for.

I dont mind if there is flames, but i guess my main concern is that i am safe.

Anyway, is that dangerous with me having the turndowns? Can an occasional flame burn through a fuel line or something? Thoughts? I guess i can always just put the side pipes for the exhaust back on...

Your completely safe! No worries! I see lots of flames from many different cars, just fuel being burnt when you floor it due to free flowing exhaust! Its all good!

I dunno if we are on the same page here. These flames happen under the car. That's why I was worried. The gas tank and fuel lines are close... thanks for the help

When your moving that fast it would be very difficult to burn anything under the car.

Re: Flames! Exhaust advice.. Help

if you are shooting flames you are possibly running to rich. Not to say across the board but at that time, you need to get a dyno with air/fuel reading and check and see where the issue is and adjust it if it needs it (plus if the a/f is good it will make more power)
