Nice thoughts, but this new wrap has no tightly sewn edge like the older wrap....both ends are loose with only scotch tape holding them together. My only thought now that it is all done is rather than "tuck, fold, overwrap" the edge, I should have probably folded it over, stapled it with my office stapler, then cut the frayed edge. That's probably off the anal retentive cliff, but it would be slightly better than what I did.

Get what I got. The old header wrap sucks in comparison. I'm not sure about the longevity of new vs. old, but the old crap is way, way harder to use and will dry up and blow away.

Edges- no, not the ends the left and right edge. The material is looped on one edge and the other side has a fully sewn lock stitch down the side. You still need to do what you did on the ends by folding it under and the stapling idea is great. Never thought of that. Some people have said they have used super glue but I find that to be a hassle due to the time involved. And as a note- yes the ties stay a little loose. Stab the tie in the bundle of wrap to help anchor it. Even though they don't get tight like a zip tie they will function and hold the wrap even if you don't sew it in the bundle.

Decision made. Just waiting for my Federal tax refund - it's like giving the government an interest free loan.

Vary nice! Have you installed this on the car yet?

I have my DP wrapped with the old stuff and my header / up pipe is not wrapped right now.
I think I will do all of it with this new wrap when it gets warmer out.

Doesn't wrapping your manifold increase the likelihood that they will crack?

I prefer the silicone spray as oppose to the ceramic spray when sealing the wrap (if thats what you choose) i feel it gets in the little knocks and cracks better as well as "glues" the wrap together.

I know this is an old thread but can u apply the Hi Temp Silcone Coating to the preped Down pipe before you wrap it. Ive heard this can be done before and also to the wrap to stop moisture and oil from getting trapped in there.

i wrapped my tomei header and uppipe today. it was a lenghty process. unabomber is right that the titanium wrap will fray very easily. i found the stainless ties useless. they will not tighten down enough to hold the wrap secure. i ordered a box of hose clamps off ebay. im gonna use them. the 1'' wrap is easier to work with like unabomber said as well. i barely had enough wrap to finish. i had 2- 1''x50' rolls like suggested.

Tried this on the killer b, but the part where the pipes are closest to each other was too close for the wraps on each pipe. Did you not have this problem?

I see it is a tight fit on certain runners, and it must be my bad wrapping skills if i don't have enough space to "floss" the wrap through. Ugh.

Might be skillz, might be manufacturing tolerances. I'd blame it on tolerances that way you can claim you are still a boss.

installed my wrapped tomei header and uppipe last weekend. everything went smooth with the install. i did have to unbolt the engine mount and go up a little on the pass side to get the stock uppipe out. the sound from the tomei el header is soo different than the stock manifold! im quite suprised it changed that much. overall, im liking the new tone and the drone is much less cruising than before. the dei wrap held nice and only smoked for about 1 hour after install. unabomber, did you get to install yours yet??

Yep, its been on about 3 weeks now. I haven't looked at the wrap since, but probably will on the 7th as I'm gonna change the oil again prior to my next tune. If you read the Killer B header review in the car parts review forum you'll see my opinion including dB testing.

I changed the oil on friday and about fell over. The wrap has ~2000 miles on it and it looks DAY ONE new. No movement, fraying, discoloration, hardening....nothing. That crap is AMAZING. Other than being a pain in the ass to cut, it really is the best. Yes....I said the best!
