Perfectly normal, so enjoy it!

It's just excess fuel being dumped into the hot headers and past the turbine housing

It's normal, as unburnt fuel hits the hot turbo and ignites.

It's normal, cool, and bound to piss off Al Gore.

thanks guys. my buddy was talking sh%^t about how his rs 60 boxter would piss all over my ancient 1983 930. we went out on a deserted road with some high speed sweepers and s turns last night. he followed me for 2 runs and couldn't even come close to challenging me to any corner. i followed him and blew past him in the esses. he was surprised to see flames out the exhaust .he was trying to out brake me but i never hit the brakes and was on the gas=on boost coming out of the turns. afterwards he didn't have much to say. all i said was not too bad for a 26 year old car. anyway thanks again.

The effect is really cool on a nice dark night. You can see the world light up in your rearview mirror.

It is completely normal on a 930. Furthermore, some folks spend lots of money to get the flames... you're already there.

i got the ruf's widened to 12" and run 315/35/17 on rear and 255/40/17 front. this is with stock spacers. i added the 2" to the inside with no clearance problems whatsoever. there's at least 3/4" clearance to the closest point. very happy with the handling and looks. i'll try to post some pics.

Less likely to shoot flames from a muffler if your AFR's are in spec.
With the Zork flames are more likely as the exit is very short and the Zork very hot.

Brian, I have headers and one of your straight through mufflers,and my car still won't blow flames. My AFRs are on the rich side of ok,so what gives? The car is twin-plugged as well,could that make a difference?
