If on a I6 Ford you were to have extractors and a pipe which joint onto the end of the extractors and imediatley exit'd just under the drivers door, would you get flames on hard take off's and down shifts???

hey this is sphell...um when i changed my cylinder head i started it without the extractors on and flames were coming out of the head. It sounded awesome, like a NASCAR But I don't think the flames would reach as far as what you want. you'd probalby have to have some serious engine work done first. I remember one time I was following STOKEB onto the west gate bridge and he floored it and flames came out the exhaust in 1st and 2nd gearchanges!
The flames are just unburnt fuel igniting, which you will never get if you have a cat converter, as one of it's jobs it to burn unburnt fuel. You'd also need straight through mufflers, no reverse flows.
But with no mufflers whatsoever like you're talking, can't see why not, it'd just have to get hot as hell.
So in short; without breaking the law (which side pipes in an E-Series would, unless you sealed the rear window and welded the rear door up), no.
