I even confirmed the wrap catches on fire by testing of a small patch of the wrap and applied a couple drops of synthetic oil and a lighter to it.
Did you seal the wrap with the spray then try to light it?

The reason I ask is b/c I planned on putting some HD stainless foil over my header to prevent such an incident, but it was too difficult to work with without tearing up the wrap and sealant. Right now it is wrapped and sealed, but I am extremely careful in changing the oil and watching for leaks. If you got it to burn with the sealant, I may start looking back into more protection.
