It will not effect the use of certain launch control setups, but it will give you larger and more consistent flames if you have a Wot Box on your vehicle. This has been tested on the TORCHSPEED3 with great results.

However, some tuners like the COBB AccessPort cut fuel instead of spark for many makes and models of cars. You will see ZERO flames over their launch control settings because they cut fuel rather than spark.
Frequently Asked Questions / What is the purpose of the Switch Panel?

The cockpit Switch Panel allows the vehicle
Provided with the kit is a comprehensive Instruction Guide that includes multiple color photos that detail each individual wire connection. The wires are color-coded so the individual doing the installation knows exactly what wire on one switch connects to what wire on the other (i.e. GREEN to GREEN, YELLOW to YELLOW, etc.). Both textual and visual representations are provided.
This is subjective to the vehicle owner. The switch should be placed within comfortable distance to the driver while sitting in the driver seat. Place it where it feels comfortable. However, it should be placed in a spot where the driver cannot accidentally turn the kit on while daily driving. Do not put it in a place where movement from the arms or legs can accidentally turn the switches on.
This is not suggested. The Switch Panel should be wired up to +12V accessory power. The RED wire from the Switch Panel is best spliced into a positive wire that only is hot when the vehicle is turned on to accessory or turned on. This is needed so that the vehicle owner doesn't accidentally turn on the Switch Panel when away from the vehicle.
Frequently Asked Questions / What is the purpose of the Torch Control Box?

The circuitry in the Torch Control Box controls the means to provide a spark to the spark plugs located in the tailpipes. Without this key component in the kit, there would be no spark to ignite the flames. The white wires from the Torch Control Box are individually connected to the coil packs (one per exhaust pipe) that are then connected to the spark plugs placed near the end of the tailpipes via spark plug wires.
The Torch Control Box should be placed in the trunk of the car within 3-feet of the coil packs. It should be placed in an area where it will not be covered, hit or agitated by everyday items stored in the trunk. The suggested place for placement of the Torch Control Box is in an open area where the spare tire is stored. DO NOT place it outside of the car as it could be damaged from water, excessive heat and/or road debris.

The Torch Control Box has a heat exhaust fan and vent slots on front and back of the box. It is required that at least 4-inches on each side be open to air. This allows the box to properly circulate air to cool the components of the Torch Control Box that heat up considerably when it is in use. Failure for proper ventilation can damage the it.
The spark plug bungs offer two different ways to mount the spark plug to the tailpipes. The best way is to weld the bungs to the tailpipes so that the spark plugs can be removed for cleaning, or be replaced. This offers a solid ground connection for the spark plugs. However, the spark plug bungs can be used as nuts to secure the spark plugs from the inside without the need of welding. However, this technique may cause grounding issues if not properly tightened down.
This is not suggested, but this can be done by the vehicle owner. Tapping the drilled hole not only requires that the installer has access to the specific tapping tool and that the tap is properly applied. Tapping the exhaust pipe is suggested because an improper tap can result in a spark plug that is loose. This will cause a bad ground for the spark plug and will ultimately cause a weak spark.

Welding the spark plug directly to the tailpipe is also not suggested, but for a different reason. The weld will likely create a solid ground for the spark plug that will provide a great spark. However, removal of a faulty or old plug will require cutting the welds. Therefore, the modified spark plug non-fouler technique is suggested. The spark plug non-fouler is modified into a spark plug bung placed and welded in the exhaust pipe. Not only would this setup provide a solid electrical ground, the vehicle owner can then remove and replace individual spark plugs.
