Keeping the heat down - Header Tape???

Post by Skulptorchaz on Tue Mar 08, 2016 3:37 pm

Hey, have any of you guys tried using header wrap high heat tape on you manifolds or headers to keep the heat down in your dog house?? I am going from a header to a manifold and was going to try it - unless someone has and didn't find it effective.
Thanks,
Chaz

I can tell you header wraps are no good because they hold moisture and cause the headers to quickly rust.

Thermo tec makes a heat resistant tape to install on the dog house itself. That should solve your heat issue.http://www.thermotec.com/products/13500-adhesive-backed-heat-barrier.html
