    Question flammer afterburner kit?

    has anybody heard if a flammer exhaust kit or after burner kit damages the car or the turbo? ive read that turbo car gets better flammes? has anybody first hand experience? also what if you have four pips like my car would i need to get an extra coil spark plug etc if i was to go ahead with it? where would you drill the hole for the spark plug? before or after the back box silencer? thanks

    erm well yes you would need 4 spark plugs and coils for it yea...
    Turbos do work better cuz they waste more fuel though!!! Had one fitted to my old mk3 and it was good laugh!!! Didnt get much flames but it was a crack!!! Personally i wouldnt do it again though unless you want a rally slag car?!

    Good question.

    Can't the Gsi do it itself ?? I've had great fun popping flames from the cossie.

    Wouldn't go for a flamer kit myself, as i wouldn't want to drill the tail pipe for the plugs.

    If you have a cat then I dont think you can use them as all the unburnt fuel will just clog the cat

    Made 1 for my Cav Turbo worked well but it didn't last long till i took it off as it was a bit cheesy. Didn't think you could run 1 on that type of coil system
