Spitting Fire / Camaro (problematic?)

Can spitting fire in the backof your V6 Camaro be a problem long-term? Just curious

I saw the HofT tuned Camaro on youtube and want to do the same thing. Is it possible

It's entirely doable but it can melt your diffuser and cause other problems down the road if not done carefully.

I wouldnt do it and can only see future problems both mechanically and or aesthetically when/if the fire hits the diffuser.

It can be done by a custom tune , but you will need to remove your catalysts inorder to let fuel reach the exhaust system , the catalysts will prevent that to happen , so basically you need a backfire tune and to remove the catalysts and replace them by straight pipes.

I don't mind a rev every now and then but when I see people revving the **** out of their engines I'm like

Too much Fast and the Furious! Engines don't like it.
