Im still on the fence about doing this to my SC'd car. Will it affect the SC tune in any way? Making it go too lean or rich? Noob question.

Maybe it has something to do with the rev-matching of the SMG system? I still get a lot of decently loud pops but no flames or loud pops.

Anyone have any ideas?

With headers and stock section 1, 2 and 3 I was unsuccessful with flames, I believe you need to have a aftermarket section 3. I now have a billy boat exhaust and I have yet to setup the GoPro.

To pop flames you must drive and heat up exhaust for 5-10 min. 50-75% throttle to 4k in 2nd gear. As soon as you let go of throttle, begin to do light taps on throttle repeatedly as RPM drops. Then try 100% throttle to 6k and tap throttle, same as above, as RPM drops.

The burble is caused by extra fuel being dumped into the exhaust so the taps basically do just that, it releases more fuel that ignites. Modern day cars don't require taps because of the nature of current day technology and tuning. That's where some of the misconception of burbles just on throttle lift comes in.
