Manifold wrap

I was speaking to someone who wrapped his manifold and he said it's given him 20 extra hp. Is this true and if so how much is it, where can I get it and how do do it?

Thanks

Re: Manifold wrap

hes full of sh!t. the wrap just keeps the heat inside the exhaust better. hot exhaust flows faster. you prolly wont feel any sort of gain from it.

Re: Manifold wrap

Guy is stupid. ^^^ and what he said.

My header is wrapped and people will tell you they will crack and fail etc etc.

What most people don't realize is that the reason their header is actually failing isn't from the wrap, but from not having motor mounts and having a race header that acts as a big lever snapped the welds at the top near the head.

THAT is the real reason. Although if you have a header that is made of mild steel or thin stainless steel/poor welds, it may crack without wrap...

Re: Manifold wrap

I only used it because this header i have has no coating, and it keeps all the heat away from anything.

Re: Manifold wrap

The guy is a moron.

Theoretically, it contains the heat and can make it travel better (For lack of better words) and can help but it's not noticeable. It keep the heat within the header piping and reduces engine bay temps. It's good for a race car but I'll keep it off my street car because it stinks the first several weeks of use and while it contains he, it also contains moisture which causes it to rust prematurely so yeah, just keep the stock cover on. Honda knew what they were doing.

Re: Manifold wrap

^^ While this is partially true, the part about retaining moisture is moot if you seal it with the heatwrap spray and wrap it correctly.

You should see the header inside my wrap. It looks brand new.
