    i was looking at the site from that VTEC Cobra thread that got closed. check out the vid of the Subaru flame wars. why are they throwing a flame like that? is it from those stupid flamethrower kits?

    Here's the link again

    I know that on turbo cars with a lot of work done, if you use a standard BOV, the car will run retardedly rich when the BOV releases, thus causing unburnt fuel to escape into the exhaust line, which usually sparks a small flame at the muffler. However, that almost always only happens under HEAVY acceleration. I would say this is 100% rice.

    That clip of the flame wars is the gayest thing I've seen since "Gay went to Gay town". WTF would all those fruitbooties think that was cool?? It seems to me that it would be a little dangerous to have flames like that pretty close to the gas tank, am I right or....???

    He was in the ultimate street car challenge in sport compact car a few years back.

    Did a burnout and the car spun on it's axis, winning him the "gross display of horsepower" category.

    Looks real to me... sounds like it's from going rich when they drop the throttle.
