Something I have learned from this stuff is a good old worm gear clamp will often hold longer then those stainless steel zip ties. Did you soak that wrap in water first? Not sure if you are supposed to do that to all bramds bit I have always used water as it should shrink up after and fit nice and tight.

the stuff on the box said I didnt need water for this version of the wrap.

i did have one hell of a time tho wrapping I ended up loosing about 5 feet due to the weave coming undone so now I need to buy one more 25 foot roll and then when thats done I'm thinking of hitting it with the black high temp spray can that I have. not sure If i wanna do that yet or not tho

time for a new update
today I went and ordered some more parts from summit
so I'll have some more DEI wrap to finish up the header and DP
along with some new copper plugs and a new valve cover gasket
I also went a dropped of my DP at a welding shop due to there being a hair line crack in it

so as of right now all I need to do is order a new Tstat housing then my tune and the turbo build will commence so hopefully I'll have everything needed by the end of the week
