Ive done a small section of my tubes to save my idler arm, I just wrapped it over itself at the start then tie wired the end.

Re: header wrap - how to

I use radiator hose clamps and try to wrap as tightly as possible preferably with the collectors held in a vice.

thanks, might try some fencing wire, if that doesnt hold then then the clamps sound like the go.

Re: header wrap - how to

I used to work in a muffler shop and we used clamps all the time.Some of the wraps work better if you wet them first so when it dries it shrinks down and has a tighter fit on your pipes.

You can buy proper clamps from your speed shop. High Energy brand I think...

I used stainless stell mig wire. But i would recommend not using that wrap. Where the welds are they will start cracking. It keeps too much heat in. Best to go with HPC coating.
