    Wow, he made it out of that alive? I'd imagine that he isn't really in the best of shape though.

    Looks like a nitrous backfire started it all.

    Its hard for me to explain but it was a Nitrous issue. It was the N seperating from the Oxygen...almost like aoxygen cutting tourch.

    Fuel started puddling in the intake, most likely becuase he bogged it off the line and was spraying at a low rpm. With lots of fuel and nitrous in the intake, it only took a tiny spark to cause the entire intake manifold to blow up. I suspect it must have broken a few fuel lines, becuase that is one hell of a fire. Normally, the fire goes out quickly, and leaves you with a blasted intake.

    No, Bugz posted it on the TF email system. I just didn't want to take credit for finding it and posting it first etc.
