Default Showoff Q: Mist/Steam from under hood when revving?

Hi Everyone,
I know I'm gonna get flamed bigtime for asking, but I have a catless TXS stage 4 kit w/SR40 turbo and GFB BOV (set to 50/50 for now)...
No this question is for the showoff in me, but I have seen some turbo cars that let off a steam/mist from under the hood when revving at a standstill (ala Skyline in 2F2F for those that painfully sat through it :-)
Just wondering how this is done... through the BOV or is it simply an IC sprayer?
Curious more than anything for those who know. Now that I can shoot flames out the Prodrive muffler with launch control, this might be pretty cool!!!
Any comments are appreciated, I know this is kind of a useless post...but it doesn't hurt to ask!
Cheers,

Brian Broz

I thought that in the Too Gay Too BiCurious it was a purge valve for nitrous. I could be wrong though

That is a nitrous purge. He is clearing the lines of the stale nitrous and getting ready to hit the "nos."

I don't believe it has to do with being "stale" from my limited knowledge of NO2 it has to do with clearing the line of any air bubbles. Though, I may be wrong as well. HAHA

But to answer the original posters question: That "Steam" you see IS the driver Purging the NO2.

It's to clear the line of anything that is in it and pull the liquid nitrous up to the nitrous solenoid. That way when you hit the nitrous you get nitrous and not air.

If air is in the line you would run extremely rich for however long it takes the liquid nitrous to get to the solenoid.
