cfmfocus2 I would recommend the Titanium exhaust wrap 2'' wide by 50 foot. It is $44.95. Here is the link. We do tend to sell more of those than the Tan/white or the black ones.

qweesy Ok the only diffrence between the Black,White, Tan and the Titanium is

1) its a different kind of weave. (both look good in my opinion)

2.) in the FAQ's it says If you are going to wrap any kind of steel pipe we recommend using DEI HT Silicone Coating to spray the header or pipes prior to applying Titanium exhaust wrap. However, there is no need to apply DEI HT Silicone Coating to Titanium wrap. ( so you still need the coating you just put it on before instead of after)

3.)Withstands 1800˚F direct/2500˚F intermittent heat rather than Withstands 1200F direct/2000F of the standard wrap.(average exhaust temps on headers of a well tuned vehicle shouldnt go above 1000 degrees.... and some seen as high 1600 degrees EGT on some turbo applications with lean conditions)

4.) it says you dont "have" to wet it thats cool dont but I guarantee you it will look better if you wet it first Ive done it both ways wet has always looked better plus it sticks to the pipe better as you're wrapping it.

5.) Obviously the colors and really its just a marketing gimmick haha they are practically the same price, hah and some of you are saying the Ti only lasted a few months???? Ill stick with black EVERY time Ive done it its been good for 2-3 YEARS

Black = 2" wide x 50' roll, $57.40

Titanium = 2" wide x 50' roll, $62.19

Tan/White = 2" wide x 50' roll, $53.22

Just what I've seen and read about it anyway.

MattDzx3 Does the titanium wrap need to sprayed with the silicone paint or is the just the fiberglass stuff?

qweesy heres a tip from someone whos wrapped many motorcycle exhausts,

You wont have to worry about rust the only time you need to worry about wrap is on "Titanium exhausts", more common on bikes over time the wrap will soak in moisture and can crack the Titanium.

Ive always used DEI brand wrap + spray

grind off the heat shield nubs,get a bucket and get the wrap wet, put the wrap on wet overlapping 1 inch of the 2in and pull it "TIGHT" as your wrapping to make it nice, I find the 1 inch alot easier to work with and looks nicer when done, but 2 inch may be the way to go on the SVT header since its bigger , also get the header wrap spray allow wrap to dry for 24hrs before you spray it on then allow another 24 hours for the spray to dry before you put it on the car.

I like black personally, if done this way it should last around 2-3 years.

SvviftSVT i have dei titanium on mine.
no rotting issues for me...
and as far as rust.. the svt header is stainless steel, so rust shouldn't be a problem.

Blue5ive Most titanium wrap I've seen done has lasted for a couple years b4 coming apart.
