I've been thinking about making a flame thrower of sorts. I know that I'm gonna need a spark plug or piolit light..but any ideas about how get the flamable gas/liquid pressurized enough that it shoots a couple of feet?

I thought abotu using propane in my paintball gun and hooking up a spark plug to the end...but i think that's pretty dangerous and I'm not willing to risk it.

step 1: get a can of deoderant body spray
step 2: hold a lighter underneath the nozzle
step 3: spray
step 4: enjoy

yeah...that's why I'm not actually going to do this till i figure it all out. right now I'm trying to figure out if it's possible and then how it would be done.

I've blown up a can of engine detailor once (among other things) and it created a mushroom cloud :)

^ didn't see that one. saw where he did exaust flames to an old muscle truck, purple truck i think it was.

anyway, you can't do it if you have a catalitic converter. basicly it works like this.

you put a coil and sparkplug in your exaust.

run a relay so that power to the coil for the exaust cuts on, while at the same time the main engine coil is cut off, and the starter is turned.

bingo. done. there are kits. but like i say, u have to have no cats.

is there any way to pass a state emissions test without a cat?

depends on how clean your engine is. I've smashed out the 1st 2 cats on my 4-cat h-pipe, but I doubt it would pass smog with a 150k engine in it. there are off-road h-pipes you can buy for 5.0s that are just pipes, no cats, and you'd just swap the stock pipes back on come smog time. I just smashed the 2 out cuz it'd help flow, make it louder, and you can't tell that they're hollow by looking at them

its not. thats what the competition type show dudes use. they hook up a small propane line and nozzle in the exaust and let that plug do the rest.
