I am confused?? Why my car shoots flames ... is this good or bad?

The modifications to my car that i have internally are agency power exaust ,ngk spark

plugs, engine rebuild,opl aluminum radiator and bhr coils. Currently my engine as a check engine

light and coolant light that turns off and on. My car shoots flames and i don't know why...

unless this is normal. (Ask my mechanic and he says its okay). wanted to know if you

anyone would agree.

It's not OK if you still have a catalytic converter. It means excess fuel in the exhaust and probably points to bad coils. If you don't have a catalytic converter, then this is more normal at high rpm. But don't assume it's fine, ignition coils are the leading cause of engine damage.

Thank you so much for the quick response to add on to what my situation is . I added new coils last year. My car's cat is warn out could that be the problem? My car shoots blue flames I do this at least twice a day noticing it's fun to show off to other ppl. I do understand this was horrible because I didn't know what the issue was.Curebtly I drive normally. I'm saving to buy a bhr pipe to replace my cat.

That indicates that your cat is already dead. You may want to remove/gut it before engine damage occurs.
