That defintely sucks....like that guy above said shouldve did his turbo piping better.

I have the biggest fire extinguisher you can have, an industrial grade one in my car. I think it is 40 or 50 pounds but its full to the max. Just had it checked and filled.

Wow, that completely SUCKS! To have spent all of the money on the car just to have it burn... like throwing dollar bills in a fire. When I get it up to par, or in any danger of need one, I will put a fire extinguisher ready and handy in my Jeep.

Wasn't turbo piping, it was a short in wiring.
