My drift miata with a Chevy 350 bursts into flames

motivation and reason for v8 swap in miata?
google, youtube, meet, and ride with Danny George.

My name is shawn prince and i am 23 years old. I was/am building a Mazda miata drift car powered by a small block Chevy 350. I was super excited to start it.... I could not start with exhaust manifolds because they would not fit. I have to make my own.... But aside from that, I mounted in the car, via modified subframe and hooked a hoist on the rear to keep the engine level.... I hooked up all the fuel lines and gave it a go.... Resulted in a horrendous fire where I got 1st and 2nd degree burns all over my left arm and leg...the reason for the fire is ignition timing was off and fuel pressure at the regulator was too high.... I killed fuel and spark and I kept turning the engine over so it would suck the fire back into the engine therefore extinguishing the fire but that didn't work and I did not have a fire extinguisher so I grabbed the hose.

Oh and btw: the engine is not on a hoist..... it is on a subframe which is bolted to the car...... i have the hoist holding the back of it to hold the distributor away from the firewall and to keep the engine level since i did not have the transmission hooked up to support it.
