so is poppin flames out of the exhaust a sign of something bad lol? I've always thought it looked awesome and I kinda wished my car would do it and tonight me and my buddy were playing around on the interstate and he said when I passed him, it popped a couple flames out. I've been told that once before too. I just wanted to make sure that's ok. I've heard of lean popping before but Im pretty sure Im not lean lol. The leanest I get is MAYBE 12.3 and that's because Im not fully dyno tuned yet. So yea, what causes that and is it ok or bad?

would it be from me running rich or would it be from when you let off the gas it goes to like 18.0 a/f for just a sec during decel?

It did the other night. I was holding it at like 4500 and then punched it and a big black cloud shot out...I guess it's just running rich. Im glad though...better than running lean!

It's been doing it since I put the turbo on I guess. I've been told a while back that it did it and then again the other night. Only been boosted for like 2.5-3 months. It's probably just running rich sometimes. What makes it only do it when you shift or let off the gas? It's very interesting.
