•Header wraps are designed to keep the heat in the header to improve scavenging of the cylinders. Keeping the heat in the header allows the exhaust speed to remain high. (the right idea)awesome, I want to pass the heat out through the muffler
•There are no header manufacturers that I know of that will warranty their headers if any header wraps are installed on their products.my headers were $150 and I already had to cut them up. Don't care about warranty...
•In most cases the header wrap damages the headers beyond repair. (I will explain below)see above
•If you run a lean mixture, you "may" see a slim performance gain using header wraps. A rich mixture may show slim to absolutely NO gain in performance. NOT looking for a performance gain, only a reduction in heat loss through the exhaust.
•If you do not mind replacing your headers and header gaskets regularly, and you like that ugly look of a wrapped header, go ahead and use the heat wrap. I don't care about looks, and this vehicle doesn't see enough hours of use to blow out gaskets. Replacing the gaskets every year would be fine.
You do know where my radiator is right?

yea...but that was one of a few articles I read about that stuff...you don't think getting them coated will help you, do you? Maybe I read too much into it but I didn't like what I read about the heat warping and thermal fiction

I am sure a coating would help a ton, but this was fast, easy and cheap(ish)

I used one of their harnesses on my twin turbo early Bronco. Nice stuff...

I hate soldering, especially when it is the result of cutting up your brand new $500 harness because it doesn't fit with your intake manifold....

I had header wrap on mine since day one, never had one problem. Only down side is it will rust your exhaust out faster because it holds the moisture and the water but like Bill said we dont use them enough for it to matter. Thats my oppinion. And they cut down on cabin heat big time.

harness laid out on the motor. Intake plumbed, rad lines plumbed, throttle cable installed. Need to add 1 vac line to the fuel reg.

I ran header wrap on a set of headers in a Camaro.. It helped tremulously, kept alot of heat out of the engine bay, kept the floor alot cooler. This was just on a set of summit racing cheap headers.

Ive never ran a set of $1000+ coated headers but I'm sure that would be the way to go. I like the look of wrapped exhaust

Not really. The resivours will get crazy hot as is. The exhaust really isn't as close as it looks.

It's at my place. Once it is complete it will be at Dale's on occasion.

I am a few pictures behind, so here goes.

The front shafts are here and look awesome.






Willwood brakes. In the background you can see the front firewall.





I started the wiring. It sounds goofy, but I tacked staples onto the chassis to run the wires through. it helps keep them all in line and on top of the tube.





And a sneak peak at the gauges. The switch panel looks pretty clean, but no pictures of that until it is complete

I should clarify. Anything in the engine bay has loom to help protect it from rubbing and heat. Anything on the chassis is open.
