I wrapped my svt header with a roll of 2inx50ft dei titanium had about 6ft left, keeps the engine temp down and you don't need to seal it.

What I did was wrap one tube then measure how much I used for that tube, then cut 4 strips that length with 1 inch more and then you have like 20 ft left for the bottom.

Just make sure you have your bung welded in before you wrap it(or have a delete for the egr) I made that mistake, I only realized after I was done and I had to re-wrap it and then the wrap was starting to fall apart so don't play with it too much.

USE GLOVES!!!!!!

I used 3 x 25' lengths of Red SickSpeed 2" wrap, from eBay. I used all but about 4 feet of it. Came with stainless pull ties, I used 12 out of 15? Coated with VHT ceramic clear when done.

You need to wrap 2 pipes down to the first collection point and then wrap the other two down to the bottom collection point.

Overlapped 1" - I didn't wrap all the way down because my car is way low and the header will probably scrape so no need to wrap what will be scraping eventually.

You should soak the wrap in water before wrapping, makes it more pliable.

titanium DEI wrap 50' roll. wrap it tight but not too tight., take your time. soak it in water before you wrap it.

aircraft saftey wire or a thin copper wire to hold the ends in place.
