^^^i agree. headerwrap is fantastic, and proven to:

1. keep underhood temps down.

2. keep the exhaust gases hotter, thus maximizing flow.

What do you think is a better way??

Too tight + no anti-seize + exhaust related = a day of cursing

What do you think is a better way??
3. It also dampens the exhaust pinging a little.
