Tada!




I also wrapped the ORP and it definitely keeps the sound in the header a little more.

It took me 6 hours to do and the longest part was wrapping the header because I wanted to get it perfect. Looking at the pictures I should have painted the dipstick.

Yes, it was wet when I did it. I didn't care to sand down the bungs because I got the shield off in one piece. I might put it back on.

UPDATE: I noticed my left-most 2 cylinder pipes have had their spray seal coating kinda come off.....I will respray them when i get the paint at my house next week....I'll post back if it all looks good.

This wrap has really held up well to my constant driving of this car, and the heat and humidity of Louisiana well. I love it, and will wrap it again if it falls apart one day.

mine are a little ragged near the fans. nothing to worry about though. other than the paint completely being discolored, the wrap itself is great. when i get my camera back, ill post a pic.

Beware of the black wrap, it will turn light gray after it heats cycles. Also, if you do the black wrap, wear full length rubber gloves or you will be staind for a week, lol.
