Re: header tape?

You would think the engine bay temps would be down. By how much though, your guess is as good as mine.

Re: header tape?

it helps with the engine bay temps to come down but i heard that after a while the pipes start to rust away, what about getting them HPC Coated?

Re: header tape?

Sorry mate but its a waste of time.
They also make the extractors rust
I agree & am also using a Ceramic coating.
Try JetHot coatings
