White Guys WRX, thanks ...I've already switched to Invidia 1 piece header and up-pipe combo and Mishimoto aluminum radiator shroud/fan.

Yes, 1/4th is correct. It is very hard to measure out how much you are wrapping however when doing this, so I said wrap it tight.
I think the invidia 1 piece will work out a lot better for you.
Be sure to check around your oil cooler also to make sure nothing is melted...

ALSO, I would for sure send an email to the manufacture of the header that melted your parts to see if there is any type of reimbursement. That sure does sound and look like manufacture defect
