Yes if you use it sparingly. If you want to be sure that you have enough, you can buy an extra 15' roll.

So 65 feet is the right amount for it?

50' is enough, wet it in hot water and take your time with it. get some good metal ties or high grade safety wire to tie it down.

1 Inch looks cleaner and easier to work around tight spots,but most go the fast route and go with the 2inch..... overlap should be half the width......so if you get 1 inch overlap .5 inch if you get 2inch overlap 1 inch

I like the black , Wet it first and makes it way easier to handle if you use black or white you will need to coat it afterward....if you use the Titanium you do not need to

Also grind off heatshield nubs before you wrap

They make a special silicone sealer / clear coat that is to be used. and can be used on both but is HIGHLY recommended on the non titanium.

Also the Titanium stuff unravels more at the cut then the older stuff does. so expect to loose inches from that. I think I lost about 12" due to fraying on the cut end trying to make sure I had a clean fold on the end.

DEI sells it on their site, their website is here >>DEI clicky<<. I think some of our vendors on this site carry it also. Some of your local auto parts stores carry it as well. I am sure if you Google it, you can price shop for it.
