Flame thrower exhaust?

I didn't realize there were easy kits to do a flame thrower exhaust.

I found one thread on another site -
http://www.clubhotrod.com/t357.html

And I know there are lots of search results on google for "flame thrower exhaust".

Has anyone seen one in person, or considered doing one?

remember again that these kits wont really do anything on our cars since we have small displacement motors, cats and fuel injection

from the FAQ area of www.gotflames.net

Quote:
Q: Will the "Got Flames?" kit work on E.F.I. (electronic fuel injection) cars, trucks, or motorcycles ?
A: Yes and no. It will work on almost any E.F.I. car, truck, or motorcycle without a catalytic converter provided it does not have 4 or 6 cylinder engine ( motorcycles are exempt from this, but still can't have a catalytic converter). Cars or trucks with E.F.I. need to have an 8 cylinder engine or bigger to shoot flames. If you have an E.F.I. 4 or 6 cylinder engine with a turbo, N.O.S. , or major engine horsepower modifications the kit will work. If your car will not shoot flames using this basic kit you can still have some options ( see Mega Got Flames kit/plans on the Flame Kits page). Catalytic converters burn off gasses the motor doesn't burn therefore there is nothing to burn at the end of the tailpipes. You can remove the catalytic converter if you have one, but I do not recommend this as there are laws in every state that require you to have a properly working catalytic converter on your vehicle. There are fines for not meeting these laws.

I remember finding this in the Anarcist Cook Book several years back. Looked like a great, very unsafe idea. That is why I didn't feel like doing it to my truck at the time.

If only I had something that I wanted to blow up...hmmmm..

I didn't get a chance to reply earlier - but I read that EFI makes it difficult and having a cat makes it almost impossible.

Anyway, thanks for the replies. Thought it sounded cool.

i've seen two different types.

one stops the spark plugs from firing letting raw air & fuel reach the tailpipe spark plug.

the other had a wet line from the fuel tank feeding the tip plug somehow.

at the show i hosted in july, a kid with a tricked out maxima did that thing where you shut off a cylinder. It barely worked and it kept back-firing, looked pretty stupid....
