I was just wondering if anybody has made or seen a 350z backfiring. Pics also would be cool.

Whoa, dude, it maketh fire. Radical!

Find a turbo 350Z, pipe the exhaust out the side, under the driver's door or slightly behind, and run no cats and slightly rich... there's your flame right there.

Hey gridracetech, this might be a stupid question but how do you run a car slightly rich?

Sometimes my car shoots out flames. It's usually when I'm driving really hard and shift near redline. I do have a turbo kit and no cats and I'm running super rich. Usually to shoot flames, it's a sign of running really rich at the top end and the extra fuel just flies out the exhaust without being burned.

if u want great backfires get a rotary car, my car can back fire for like 5 secs or more depending on the situation

using a stand alone fuel management or a piggy back

or a JWT ECU because they run on the rich side ;)

Just curious, can an rx-8 backfire stock since it's a rotary. I remember seeing a clip of one backfiring, but it had the Borla catback exhaust on it.

I was going to say Yuuki Izumida's 350Z backfires nicely,but I didn't have the pic of it.That was the one I was looking for,nice work.

It's funny, why is everyone so hooked on the flaming backfire thing? I think you would be more interested in figuring out how to make the rear end come out like a Drifter does.

As strange as it sounds,fire is just something we all seem to love.From the hot rodders in their old school Mercs to the guys with flame thrower kits on their trucks.The fascination of fire never ends.


Nothing roasts the tailpipes like a rotary.These engines naturally run rich,just come with some quirks(good if your dedicated,which you need to be).

Im afraid of flame throwers on cars. I went to a local meet with a friend and some hometown hot rodders were there. Some guy had HUGE flames. It was cool until random guy walked behind right when the flames came out. He caught on fire for a couple seconds. Hmm.

2 run "rich" there needs to be more fuel going in2 the block than needed you would do this w/ a stand alone ecu or a piggy back comp. then if u want 2 shoot flames first u need no cat so u would replace that w/ test pipes or something like that. you also rev your motor higher than normal and when u finally do shift a flame should shoot out. this also happens when u down shift at a high rpm. if u still hav your cat you will just hear a poping sound

Do you have some pics/vids of your Endless Z33 to share? That would be awesome if you had some.

i think this is one stupid thread, why would you want to backfire, just to look cool, the pro's do it so we can see pictures like that, you'd do it to get *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored*ed be the law (i dont know if im correct but a policemen would probably get a little ticked seeing a flame getting shot out of a car...)...you guys should practice shifting, and not killing your engine just to get it to backfire...

BTW: DrifterZ... my Z33 shoots some pretty good flames when I bounce off the rev-limiter in 2'nd/3'rd or when downshifting aggressively.. all it took was removing the cats and stock exhaust for some test pipes and a JIC single Ti without the silencer:D

but i heard that shooting different colours of flames can tell different signs of the motor....
like..yellow and orange flames are juz having a high water-temp and running rich, but if the motor is in a particular good condition the flams will comes out as Blue..
and red means tha motor is running lean....
not sure if those are ture or not...
i got that form 'OPTION FANs" mag.......
