Default flame exhaust kit

Already searched. Don't flame me... no pun intended . I got a kit and it came w/ a plug, a module box, a switch, and mount and wat not.

I just got an ignition coil today.

2 questions:

1. Where is the ignition coil on our cars?

2. Could i just wire up: battery-switch-ignition coil (to plug in exhaust)-battery ? Would this be all i need?

I was lookin at the diagrams and do i really need to use 2 ignition coils? Can't i just run the above set up? Any thing needed to make it electrically safe?

I've got a rear mounted battery so this makes this a ton easier.

Also, how do you ground? I'm not an electrical guru by any means but i've heard suby grounds r opposite of wat you think or somethin along those lines.

Thanks,
Zack

I've done these with plugs and fuel pumps on old street rods, never used one of the kits before. What did they charge you for it?

You've got 4 ignition coils--one on each sparkplug.

Take it back. You wasted your money. The stock ignition system needs no help.

edit: Just realized what you are talking about. I am without words...what a waste of a great car.....

If you want that to work, you only need the one extra coil to power the plug that is in the tail pipe. There should be some instructions with that kti. I would envision that you need to wire the coil to the battery with a switch and when ever you throw the switch it should turn on an light what ever fuel you have left over. If the kit is asking for two coils, it may be just trying to ensure that you light all the excess fuel in the pipe, not sure. I have only seen this kit installed in a magazine article and I have no first hand experience with them.

good luck with it,

just make sure you dont yourself or anything else for that matter

Did i call it a "mod"? Did i intend for it to make me fastAr? Did i say that i wanted to be like the F&F?

No

I really don't understand what your deal is w/ me but i hope you can get over it. I've only met you once and few words were exchanged. I respect you and your shop, but you still feel the need to get your nice comments in there.

A lot of other Subie owners care a lot, because our brand generally has not been dragged down into the f-n-f/ricer image.

All you need to bust some mad flames is an electronic rev limiter (like launch control). One that cuts spark, not fuel. That will get you some much safer "flames", and not cause you to install a sparkplug/coil/etc on the car....for when you change your mind Launch control would be a MOD as well, making your driving better by enabling you to launch the car already in boost.

This was a stand-alone box... It didnt rely on the ECU directly. If I remember correctly, it was made by Race Logic... See what you can find there. It was a rev limiter... but it did tha trick

Ok..First off i have never installed one of these kits.But The battrty-switch ingnition coil..won't work..You need to tap off one of the cars coils to the "extra flameshooter" coil.The reason is you need the coil to pulse. If you did it the way your thinking you will only get one spark. And it will be a very short like "puff" of flameage. You want the coil to pulse so it keeps ignighting the fuel to get "major flaming" that your going to want.The biggest problem i see is haveing anything left in the exhaust to actully light on fire in the first place..Yes we run rich but i'm thinking it's not rich enough. I could be wrong but i don't think that with out extra fuel in the exhaust that much will happen.

With the RFL bov i shoot some nice flames. Also with my msd in my 5.0 i just kick the two step rev limiter on to get it to shoot flames.
