Question Exhaust Header Wrap

I had a customer call, they run the cruise boat on the Lake Front in Chicago. He is looking for a fiberglass wrap for his exhaust manifolds. Does anyone know of this stuff. I believe there have been a few race boats that used something similar a few years back. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mark

Both Summit and Jegs will carry it. I'd advise against it though. The wrap causes the temps to rocket well past the limit for the metal. I have saw a header that actually blew a chunk of the tube out like shrapnel! The portion of the tube that was wrapped was all crazed and cracked. It was obviously over heating.

I use to put it on bike's all the time and it worked great for what we wanted it to do, not burn the bodywork. I never saw any HP gain and did a lot of dyno work. Don't use it on a Titanium or chrome pipe. If you are working on the thing all the time it make's it nice because it is cooler so you wont get burned on the exhaust.
