Pretty sharp, I like it but would never do it to my truck . Has to be propane with a spark plug mounted in the pipe. Something tells me its illegal , I've seen this done at some old car shows . You rev up the motor and as it idles down the exhaust is rich with unburned gasoline , then a spark plug in the exhaust tip lights it.

Yeah, I'm sure its propane injected down lower and then a spark plug inside the pipe to light it.

I've seen a couple trucks online that shoot flames. Pretty sure someone here wrote a write-up on it. Pretty sure it was propane injected in the pipe and then had some sort of ignition system. Don't see why it wouldn't be safe for the truck (or should I say engine), besides the part where it might catch on fire. lol

As long as the exhaust comes out far enough past the body of the truck so it dosen't burn the paint you'll be fine. It can't go up the exhaust cause their is no air up there, not to mention the flow is going the wrong way. You just have to put the spark plug really close to the end of the pipe where thier is air, other wise it wont ignite.

Sounds like a custom lope tune (super rich) with sparkplugs in the stacks.

I doubt you'd get diesel to ignite by the plugs. Has to be propane.
