What exhaust is the one with the flames?

Like the ones in the the fast and the furious, Im just wondering if those exhausts with the colored flames exist or if they were just added for show. If anyone knows please tell me.

I need money for my celica.

It's not the exhaust it self that is doing it, it's the mixture of some kind of fuel or something. Not too sure which ones though. confused

nope, it's just some chemical that the producer puts at the tail of the pipe.

When the pipe heated up, there's the chemical reaction, then flames burst.

The way you see it is that when they step on the gas, air blows out the pipe, and blows the flame out~ then the whole thing looks cool.

you follow? wink wink

yeah, right right, i read it in a U.K. magazine, it's just another aftermarket part. this guy wired it so he can use the flames when he wants to and controls it from the wheel.

"a misfiring system is basically a solution to turbo lag. when a driver (with turbo) lifts his foot off the gas to make a turn, there is a sudden drop of power, obviously, and so there is a loss of exhaust gases which lowers the pressure needed to drive the turbine. when the turbine loses this power, it slows down and needs time to spin up again, which creates the lag. the way a misfiring system works is, when this happens, it senses it immediately and injects fuel directly into the exhaust system itself. The fuel is detonated in the exhaust manifold, creating that pop you hear and the force of this mini-explosion is enough to maintain boost pressure needed to keep the turbo up to speed even when the car is slowing down, thus virtually eliminating any lag and maximizing power coming out of a turn. However, these are illegal on street cars, and eventually ruins the turbo and exhaust system. Hope this helps"

I believe that it's the heat of the turbine continuously running which ruins the turbine and the engine~
