Name the midpipes that shoot flames

I wanted to know which midipipe/downpipe/racepipes/ shoot flames. Doesn't have to be the loudest or quietest.

All midpipes minus the CAT will shoot flames. Even cars with the OE CAT will shoot flames.

It's the lack of cat that enables flame shooting, with the degree of flame shooting based somewhat on your cat-back and fuel trims. If you run really rich, that will increase flaming, lean will reduce it, a big can muffler could have it lighting off farther up the pipe and less getting out. I.E, with the stock muffler and the above BHR midpipe, I would have ignition of excess gas inside the stock muffler, which is only visible as reflected light if you happen to be looking right down the tailpipes.

A few other small variables, but removing your cat is the best method to ensure flames of any type.

Holy ****, really OP? Really? Join date is 2006 and you have 100+ posts. Should know better than this. As stated before, all catless midpipes and even catted mid pipes in "certain" situations.
