Looks like there's a recall.

A: that engine was running rough as fuck and B: those flames really aren't a big deal, it's diesel that hasn't combusted being lit by the hot ceramic close couple particulate filter, pretty tough to fix, the remap will prevent catastophic fires, but it's really just a band aid

Old.  The concensus on that vid is the people who made it did something else to the truck, namely because of how bad the truck is running as stated above.  While there is/was a flame issue due to the diesel particulate filter in regen mode (where it "burns off" emissions in the filter) , a simple reflash cures it.  Hp is about to get a good jump from the tuners as several tuners are saying they're really close to being able to get rid of the filter system w/o having the truck go into regen mode.  Once that gets figured out, some crazy-stupid numbers will start coming from these motors.  Same for the Cummins and D-max.

LOL..........from the video's sound, I can hear that the car has a bent valve. You can hear the rocker arm clicking as it hits a valve that is either bent or stuck open. This would explain the funny whoosh the cylinder makes when it's turn to fire comes up. It would also explain why the engine is passing rather than burning gas.
