HaveBlue83, thanks for the awesome how-to. I used it today. I used the titanium wrap.
It looks incredible in person, planning to install it on the SVT tomorrow if the rain holds off enough.

heres a lil tip for every 1 wanting to do this when you get go to wrap ur header use a piece of tape to hold it in place at first then wrap it dry and THEN cut the wrap to legnth and remove wrap from header then wet and wrap that section as you would normaly useing ss hose clamps or the metal ties then repeat on the rest of header i used this method and only used about 3/4 of a 50ft x2 in roll and still have a whole nother 50ft role left over for the orp and whatever i decide to use it on
like the ps line the snorkle tube if you have it or on the cai or short ram intake or the ic pipeing for u f/i guys or what ever else you can think of.

heres a link to the kit i used

Any cons with wrapping the SVT header? Ive read online that it does not let the metal expand evenly and has caused a few holes in peoples headers

Safety wire works well to secure the wrap and is significantly less expensive than clamps or the SS ties.

dood, SS hose clamps arent expensive. and they look nice when you get all OCD and make sure they're all facing the same way.

ive wrapped many many headers and have always used the hose clamps.
although, my downpipe and turbo manifold may see some of the DEI ties due to space constrictions.

ok I have a few more ?'s I got the fiberglass wrap because thats all the local guys carried but I dident get the silicone sealer yet. it it okay to wrap it now and seal it later? (I would not be installing it until after sealed) and do you guys who have used the fiberglass do you feed the whole wet role through the tubes or cut to length? Thanks

i never sealed mine. 2 years later it's still fine. The sealer peels off anyways and looks ugly.

cut to length! there are directions in the box. you gotta measure the primaries and add for curves and multiply and stuff.

good luck!
