    Will it be a straight swop and clean up, then job done?

    usually though the exhaust will take a good few miles to clear

    I had one go on one of these

    download (85).jpeg

    She was burning a gallon a day of oil through the engine and with over 25,000 hours she was due a rebuild, after about a month in the yard being stripped down and rebuilt she was finally ready for the first trip out, I rocked up at the yard at 5 and after a short warm up away we went by half past in the pitch black apart from the amber flashing beacon an headlights, I was about a half mile down the road and all of a sudden the tree lined back road lit up like it was daylight and I looked back to see a 15 foot flame shooting out the top of the exhaust stack, it was insane but really cool :) I pulled up and everything was fine, it was just the engine oil burning off in the exhaust lolz :D

    Ha.
    Me and a few chaps converted a Blown AKI MK2 from a 220 cummins to a Tuned Big Cam 3.
    After the maiden voyage on a piece of country road the excess oil and diesel ignited in the stacks and suddenly we had this truck roaring towards us with flames shooting out the top, looked ACE!!! ;)
