Shooting Flames

Ok, so my car has the speedcircuit test pipe, and the buschur quiet exhaust (magnaflow) muffler and every time i get on it and let off I shoot flames out the back. Usually a good 12 inch flame according to people that follow me. Is this normal or should i be concerned? I just dont want to keep doing damage and i feel like i should get it looked at. Any thoughts on the issue? Is it because i have no cat that it shoots flames or just running too rich?

Just to be clear: (list of performance mods)

buschur quiet exhaust
Speedcircuit test pipe (catless)
nisei upper intercooler piping 1pc
works drop in filter

Even at 11.5 AFR's I still belch out a nice flame front depending on how I jump off the throttle between shifts. It's quite a light show at night, just not something you want to be practising around law enforcement.

Is it the test pipe that allows the flame to reach the exhaust tips? It seems like a cat would stop the flame from progressing further down the exhaust.

2 days after putting on a test pipe I was in front of a 350z. Later, he gets beside me with a thumbs up hollaring over that I shot flames. I couln't wipe the grin off of my face the rest of the evening. Best thing to do is to get a wideband, tactrix op2 cable and evo scan to log your car any time your concerned

I love the flames, I do it on purpose sometimes. just stomp the gas, let off then tap the gas again and you'll hear the pop* that sound means you spit a flame!

I haven't seen or heard of any flames spitting out the back yet, but i just put on my test pipe yesterday, and it has been popping every once in a while, so maybe that means i shoot flames too! that would be awesome!
