titanium DEI wrap 50' roll. wrap it tight but not too tight., take your time. soak it in water before you wrap it.
aircraft saftey wire or a thin copper wire to hold the ends in place.

|Magus2727||used a 50 foot and a 10 foot section. and had a little bit left over. but wanted to make sure that i had enough to get it all done and it will frey when doing bits. so trimmed a bit a few times to get a good edge.|

I used 3 x 25' lengths of Red SickSpeed 2" wrap, from eBay. I used all but about 4 feet of it. Came with stainless pull ties, I used 12 out of 15? Coated with VHT ceramic clear when done.
You need to wrap 2 pipes down to the first collection point and then wrap the other two down to the bottom collection point.
Overlapped 1" - I didn't wrap all the way down because my car is way low and the header will probably scrape so no need to wrap what will be scraping eventually.
You should soak the wrap in water before wrapping, makes it more pliable.

|02rsv02zx3||Ok thanks... Happen to remember the lengths that u cut for each tube? Also have u had any issue with the wrap and oil?|

I wrapped my svt header with a roll of 2inx50ft dei titanium had about 6ft left, keeps the engine temp down and you don't need to seal it.
What I did was wrap one tube then measure how much I used for that tube, then cut 4 strips that length with 1 inch more and then you have like 20 ft left for the bottom.
Just make sure you have your bung welded in before you wrap it(or have a delete for the egr) I made that mistake, I only realized after I was done and I had to re-wrap it and then the wrap was starting to fall apart so don't play with it too much.

|02rsv02zx3||Ok Ile look for a sheild on here... Thanks|

It's spendy but helps tremendously.
Use large flat washers on both sides of the lower mount bolts. That point gets very hot and it's the fist place mine rusted through, in like 6 months.

|02rsv02zx3||Ok thanks... I appreciate the info from both of you... I think I will just buy dei wrap and hope for the best.. It's not a huge difference in price... Iminhell... Will I need the svt heat sheild or will my stock zetec one fit? My stock one is in almost perfect shape...|

I used aircraft wire to hold mine in place.
The last one I wrapped I used the ties in the kit and cut the hell out of my fingers. Never again I told myself.
And, thicker doesn't change anything. It's how tight the wrap is that makes it work well.
I've done minimal overlap, double wrap and in-between. Surface temp didn't change much at all.
The biggest change I saw was wrap with the factory heatshield.

|sleepyboy||Doesn't matter what brand it will all rot eventually. A local member has the DEI stuff and it's rotting off too. The stuff I used was the no name ebay stuff. It should easily last a year though. Mine lasted a few years without being sprayed.|
