I was wondering if you were cruising like 50 miles an hour with your car in vacuum,(not in boost)and let off the throttle or just decide to down shift,will you throw a little flame.That would suck if a cop was behind me.

sometimes when you let off the gas and then touch it again, sometimes when you are downshifting, the afrs go rich lean rich causing it to pop and shoot a flame! put a meth kit on that bish and watch huge blue flames go bang bang bang!!

Screw BOV's, test pipes and flames are the new thing. I rather see flames than hear a damn bird stucik in my intake.

Ok I can not tell a lie. My tuner and I set my decel tables rich so when I let off the gas above 5k rpms in any gear and leave it in gear I shoot flames......big ones. And they usually are blue according to my wife.

LOL. I don't car I love that $#!t.

I get out of a lot of stupid races like...Normally I will have some yahoo in X car try to get my attention. If he doesnt leave me alone I gun to get in front.....when he thinks its on I let of the gas and I usually don't get harrassed after that.

Downfault is if a cop sees it, you're completely shafted. Its like a $1500 fine to have no cats.

not it doesn't. driving without a catalytic converter is a FEDERAL offense, fyi.

also, you can still shoot flames with the proper cat (-:
