Refer to your local yellow pages and call up some machining shops. Ask if they have "heat wrap" or if they know where to get some.

My friend gave me a 25 ft roll of heat wrap. I was thinking about this the other day: If you wrap the Intake manifold and Intake tube with it, ofcourse it will keep the heat out for a while. Over a certain amount of time, they will heat up also, and the wrap will retain the heat right? That would not be good. Any info appreciated.

yes, the wrap will have heat retention i believe(someone correct me if i'm wrong). here is injens faq. the piping on Injen doesnt not have heat retention and they even tested temp within the piping. hope this helps, here is the link:

my bad, lack of sleep screwed up my grammar lol frown and edit time ran out on my earlier post. i meant to say Injen's piping DOES NOT have heat retention, so the wrap is not necessary for it. rice

how do you keep the heat wrap so it stays on?
like at the ends of the wrap when you're done wrapping the Intake/etc, do you use clips to keep the ends from hanging?
