    Hello all

    My audi a3 8l 1.8t has a powerflow Decat back exhaust system on it. It has never poped or banged at all but recently when revving to top of Rev range it has been blowing a blue small flame out the back. All I was wondering why is this? Does it mean the turbo is on way out?

    Any advice welcome
    thanks

    I though it may have just been over fueling but never seen a blue flame before. Looks like something out of 2 fast 2 furious!

    Haven't scanned it yet.

    Fairly common with free-er flowing exhausts. Nothing to worry about

    That P1 spits out a lot of flames....maybe that's broken also :)

    I need some blue flames to match my car....I think the Milltek non-res may have to be shelved if these powerflows are giving out blue flames :rockwoot:

    I have a milltek non res, relentless dp & decat, and not so much as a hint of a pop, bang, or flame from the back, if that swings your opinion any Joe

    I want some, Blue flames are ace! You are seriously cool if your car does them this is a fact !
    If it's good enough for a Lamborghini aventador its good enough for me ;-) now how do I make my 2.0 tdi a3 do it?
