but if it burns up the unburnt fuel,wont it :-
1) be unsafe as it can cause fire?
2) reduce the FE of the car to a great extent coz the flames produced wud require a lot of fuel to burn?

hey buddy...im a performance parts stockist here in bombay..i can arrange for the flame throwers but i dont have the one's which are low end and perform with spark plugs and waste fuel..the one's which i can arrange are the one's with an entire setup which leads to the ecu...and ulitmately you have the control of the flame on the push of a button..and no these dont work on the shift of a gear...probably the low end one's do..these are completely safe and yes..they do come with a big tag price..if you do need the low end one's i guess viper can arrange them for you..if you need the high end one's just drop in a pm and i'll get back to you with my number and other contact details...cheers...happy revvin...!!



P.S. - This setup of the flame thrower does not work on the OHC...as the ecu does not co-ordinate with it..and for the ikno you need a dual application..hence sot doubled..well all other cars go through standard application...cheers...!! - TRIED..TESTED AND FLAMED...!!

There is nothing to it but simple electronics. Need to have a proper installer.

well yes they are available in bangalore at a shop called prodrive in shivajinagar..these flame throwers have a small spark plug which ignites the unburnt fuel coming out of the exhaust..hence the flame is produced..and when even putting dark tints is agaisnt the rules how in the world can we expect the FT to be legal..and btw these flames do not come out once the gear is changed and the clutch is released but u have a button and u can choose when to use the FT and disable the same..its just works like NOS..

well as u know a certain amount of fuel that doesnt burn out completely comes out of the exhaust..so this FT light up that fuel to give that spark..and ya its no way possible to tinker around with it to illuminate ur number plate..what exactly u wanna do..light up ur number plate and ur tank ..

Autopsyche.... the cheaper ones..the ones with sparkplugs, will work only in PETROL Cars, as Diesel cannot be burnt with Sparkplugs... aint that rite?

Secondly, if the above is right, then the "Fuel Frame Thrower" will work in diesel cars or not? i am desperately trying to get hold of one, was about to bring one with me from australia, but well, my personal vehicles are always going to be diesel...! and cant even dream of putting such a thing in dads OHC1.5!
