Quick Exhaust heat wrap question

I am getting ready to have the LT headers installed. Does anyone know how much 2" wrap I will need to cover them?

Call up american muscle. they will sell you what you need. and yes its a good idea to wrap, it wont hurt anything and keeps under hood components cooler.

Ceramic coat them. If the car is a DD and hits all types of weather then I do not recommend wrapping them. Leads to rust problems eventually.

I've never seen rust on 304 stainless steel header. We replaced shorties on a ls motor and the headers looked new. But they were also ceramic coated.

Ceramic coat them and they will last the life of the car... Or longer. Also helps keep the temp down. It's worth the extra money.


A couple more months and my license plate will say 1fstcpa!!!!

Here is a diy article: http://ls1tech.com/forums/forced-ind...c-coating.html. I would suggest you take it some place if you aren't experienced. Shouldn't be too terribly expensive.
