    This what I imagine when I hear the word super trucker. Anyway, it must have been the def or fuel getting into the sut burner.

    Crazy how many believe it does though.


    I'd imagine a leaking turbo would cause fire too. Had that happen to me once.

    Leaking turbo is super bad, the oil feed can cause a runaway.

    considering how the lights were ran, I'd say its intentional. Not sure of a safe way to accomplish that, especially with the trailer right there, but reminds me of the rat rods with the flames coming out the tail pipes.

    I wouldn’t worry about the flame.
    I would be more concerned about the freaking exhaust system glowing cherry red !
    That Truck is moments away from bursting in to flames !

    On the intake side. That oil would burn up and likely not react with the oxidation catalyst, making heat.

    Leaking exhaust half could cause the oil to react with the catalyst and start making a lot of heat.

    The way that truck was chugging I'd say something's not right. Even the ISX (that always sounds like they're going to window the block) sound healthier than that!
