How far do you have to tune an VIII FQ300 before you'd get flames out the exhaust on shift?

And what would you have to do?

Do you have a decat or cat installed?

Any device that makes your mixture run rich will give you the same effect, just make sure you do not have a cat fitted.

d-cat and a dump valve, of be sad like me and get a flamer kit
Ive often wondered about these. Is it possible with a flamer kit to just spit a flame out on demand, say whilst Im driving and some [email protected] is on my back bumper in his nova?

It would be nice if I could just press a button and one flame say 2ft long would fire out, is that do-able?

Yeah I had a propane fired flamer kit on my BMW M5, with an arm switch and a trigger under the throttle pedal. Arm it, and when you floor it you get an 18 inch gas-red flame out all four pipes!

LOL I get a strangely satisfying feeling from giving one swipe of the rear wiper as I hit the loud peddle too, sort of a little wave goodbye, maybe I could combine the two :D

I did look good, especially when that road hog finally gets out the outside lane, and you can blast past them with all four pipes lit!

They're not illegal to fit under construction / use regs.

However using them as described above (i.e. recklessly / irresponsibly) could get you into a whole world of hurt, including motor vehicle in dangerous condition,, wilful damage and goodness knows what else. One for responsible "show use" only, guys.

Since installing the Autronic and running the ALS, i have managed to get massive flame between gears. But then again The anti-lag we are running makes atmosphere at idle, so i expect the turbo will last about another 5 minutes :-D

But i could never go back to not having ALS, its not only good for performance, its great to stand around and toast marshmellows :)
