: This one's easy, I did it on my '64 Dodge Polara. First you have to get a coil (I reccomend one for each tail pipe), then drill holes about 6" from the end and screw in a spark plug in each pipe. I used AC R44TS plugs, but it doesn't really matter much. Now run some spark plug wires to the plugs. There are a few different way to trigger the coils. My car had points, so I tapped into the primary wire from the distributor and ran it through a toggle switch. One problem with this setup is that you have to kill the engine to have enough power to trigger the coils, but at least it works. Another method is to use a crank trigger or a disrtibutor running off an electric motor. Oh ya, just hook the positive wire on the coil to a key on source. This setup should get you a nice blue flame about a foot long. If you want to go big you can add some fule into the exhaust pipe about 4" upstream from the spark plugs. (70 Impala winshield washer nozzles work good;).
: Or you could just buy the kit.
: Oh ya, Don't do this. ;}
im a student at UTI pheonix campus. Im in electronics class now and now I understand about coils and plugs, and how they work. I have always been facinated with flames from the tail pipe, but I want to know is this legal or not...thanks.
