A safe way of doing this without destroying stuff is to use a small bottle of
proprane,
a solenoid, some wiring & switchs and the nichrome wire mentioned below. Using
propane is much safer than trying to plum tubing with combustables, or soaking
down the cylinders and filling the crankcase with gas. get one of the really
small bottles of propane gas, think they are about 1#, connect a line to a
solenoid such as the one for a gas heater, (needs 24v, use a small secondary
battery for this purpose) and a small hole drilled into the last foot of the
tail pipe. Get a small nozzle such as the one on the propane torches, mount it
in the hole in the exaust, run the wiring for the switch, (double pole, double
throw, use one side of the switch to control the solenoid for the propane, the
other side to supply current to the nichorme wire (oops forgot to tell ya to
mount that downstream of the gas nozzel) & you are all set. Makes a really
pretty blue flame!!

If I understand correctly, that'll just be hell on the catalytic converters
and you won't get any fire. What you probably need to do is induce fuel
(preferably diesel or kerosene so the vapors don't explode) in the exhaust
pipe before the outlet, and use a piece of nichrome wire and electricity to
ignite it.

Don't upgrade your chip till you have done all of your other mods, than get
one custom made.. Lots of hipro shops doing these now!

You can use a grill igniter instead of a spark plug... lends easier to the
switch, and I would do a fuel injection into the pipe instead of trying to
flood the engine! Have fun!

it in the books but don't know what it is.

Thanks,
Dave

If I understand it right, a block with siamesed cylinders doesn't have
any water flow between the cylinders. The cylinders are actually cast
together as one bank, instead of four seperate cylinders with 360 degree
water flow.
