Catless= Flames

Ive always wondered if running catless I could shoot flames. I decided to try this out and GoPro it.

My car will shoot bursts of flames too, but never on pump gas alone. Only when a pump/race gas mix has a bit too much octane. Are you just on pump or some kind of mix? Cool to see an e92 doing it, thanks for posting

I believe you can ask some tuners to leave a little more fuel in the map on over run which will give some nice flames. Just wastes a little more gas but looks cool as hell. My buddies with the Porsches and some mustangs do it

It was a 3/4 pump 91 and 1/4 100 octane race mix. The more race gas more flames I'm assuming

Does this work with a HFC setup? I have HFC xpipe and no secondary cats (obviously). I want flames. I always run 95 octane with 91 mixed to 108. Maybe I have had flames all along and did not realize it. I want flames!!

Im not sure that HFC would allow any flames going back. Any sort of Cat would usually prevent any of that from happening

With an HFC setup it's probably less likely to happen.

My supercharged 330 used to shoot out a one foot flame back in the day
