propane injection would be an easy way of doing it plus you could use it as a power adder or mileage adder if you like.

Propane injection, spark plugs and coil packs.

I was building a similar setup for a gasser. I wanted them to work without killing the motor.

I bought to nitrous nozzles for a EFI car then used steel brake line then a little coleman cook propane tank, and a nitrous purge valve.

Thats the farthest I got, I still couldnt figure out a spark setup to trigger it.

How about some kind of igniter like a gas grille uses? If you are only flaming the stacks studs won't be necessary. Inject the propane and ignite it just before the exit on the stack. Don't melt the stickers off of your back window.

Tuned, Deleted, Filtered, Monitored...all the usual stuff.

I've been thinking about that as well so hopefully i can get started on it sometime soon. and i thought they were talking about injecting it into the engine.

How do you want flames like this?

Or this?

Or this?
^you dont want this. this is bad... really bad. that was covered under recall...

To make the propane work youd have to ignite it with a spark plug with a really high out put coil. With old school carbed engines all youd have to do is make a richer fuel mixture at the carb and just run the switch and coil plus spark plugs to ignite the exhaust. The problem isnt rigging up a coil and switch. thats the easy part. Getting the right ammount of propane in to ignite it is. unmetered propane plus spent exhaust gasses doesnt leave much oxygen to ignite it. High performance diesels have done it ive witnessed it. With propane injection on the intake plus the right air fuel mixture will have blue flames come rolling out of the stacks/exhaust with coal...
