I also spent a season crewing on an NTPA Super Stock tractor. Several things I see there.

- That ain't #2 flaming out of the stack at the end of the pull. Hard to tell what it is, but there seems to be a lot given the pull is over. The driver may be giving it a shot of something to keep it running.

- That looks like a fabbed, painted steel header with four exhaust sources - 4 turbos I would assume. Most steel melts at less than 1500 degrees. High end stainless will melt around 2000 degrees. So that gives some idea on temps.

- The exhaust is not showing any flame at the stack, so it isn't running wildly hot. When we pulled, we watched the flame on the stack to know when to turn the water on. All you could run at the time was #2 and water.
