[QUOTE=125shifter;3582341]The waste gate dump flame seems suspicious. Like Nathan, I'm suspecting ignition timing.

Is the exhaust also very hot?QUOTE]

yes the exhaust get very hot.

My wrench said he checked the ignition timing with a timing light, I have not done it personally. I will drop into the shop this afternoon and get them to do it again.

The car does not have a distributer anymore it has a 36-1 toothed wheel and a sensor installed. The ignition timing is entirely handled by the ECU
