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.

17
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.

Frequently Asked Questions / Can I use spark plugs I already have?
« on: August 22, 2020, 12:36:48 AM »
Yes. You can use spark plugs you already have. However, the elongated spark plugs used on DISI engines are best to be used. This allows for the spark plug electrode to be placed closer to the center of the exhaust tailpipe. Theoretically, this shouldn

Yes. A 90-day warranty from the date of purchase covers all the provided components for the Torch Exhaust Flamethrower Kit that includes: (1) The Torch Brain Box, (2) The Switch Panel and (3) The Ignition Safety Switch if they meet the following requirements:


23
There are TWO guarantees given for the Torch Exhaust Flamethrower Kit:

1. With the proper components and proper setup, the Torch Brain Box will provide a solid spark to the spark plug(s) in the tailpipe(s).

2. With the proper setup needed for the ignition cut, raw fuel will go through the engine to the tailpipes.
However, the kit DOES NOT guarantee exhaust flames. This is mostly due to vehicles with restrictive exhaust. More information on this can be found in the Instruction Guide as well as the frequently asked question regarding catalytic converters and restrictive exhaust.

Frequently Asked Questions / Does DIY Flamethrowers offer exchanges?
« on: August 22, 2020, 12:34:29 AM »
Yes. Though exchanges fall under the circumstance of a DOA (dead on arrival) flame kit components within the 90-day warranty period. Buyer agrees to pay one-way shipping of the faulty item back to DIY Flamethrowers, and a replacement component will be mailed to the buyer.

Guarantees of the Torch Exhaust Flamethrower Kit

There are TWO guarantees given for the Torch Exhaust Flamethrower Kit:

1.   With a proper installation, the Torch Control Box will provide a solid spark to the spark plug(s) in the tailpipe(s).

2.   With the proper setup needed for the ignition cut, raw fuel will go through the engine to the tailpipes.

However, the kit DOES NOT guarantee exhaust flames. Any vehicle with a catalytic converter will produce little to no flames.

Delete All Catalytic Converters

   All catalytic converters must be entirely removed and replaced with straight-pipe setups. This includes
