|Heat Protection Exhaust Wrap Products:
Wrap serves a two-fold purpose that has been sought by many race
professionals for the following reasons:
Reduction in ambient temperatures
Wrapping can significantly decrease underhood temperatures. Competitors have boldly claimed reductions of 70% although we at Design Engineering, Inc. have conducted comparison testing and found upwards of 45% to be more of a "real world" scenario. One thing is for sure, reduction of underhood temperatures, in any amount, is beneficial towards breathing cooler air and avoiding premature failure on costly engine components due to thermal deterioration.
Wrapping also increases the thermal retention within pipes and subsequently expedites exhaust flow at a higher velocity. This characteristic increases horsepower.
Although Exhaust Wrap received it's claim to fame from renown engine builders and racers such as Smokey Yunick, it is not just for racing. Wrapping the exhaust on your RV, heavy duty truck or tow vehicle helps add horsepower while reducing unwanted heat in the engine and driver's compartment. Wrapping the exhaust can also protect surrounding wiring and hoses from premature failure.
Design Engineering's Exhaust Wrap is constructed of a high temp resistant woven fiberglass that is then pre-heat stressed in a process called burnishing. A vermiculite coating is then applied to act as a bonding agent and to increase durability levels under extreme heat - up to 2024º F.
Design Engineering has recently introduced an Exhaust Wrap Kit.
These kits contain everything needed to completely insulate a set of V6 or small block headers. We have even included our Locking Ties for securing the wrap to your pipes, as well as our HT Silicone Coating to protect the wrap from dirt, road debris and water while providing a more aesthetically pleasing look.
Packaging a complete kit leaves you only one part number to deal with and provides a savings over buying each component separately.
Again, Design Engineering has compensated for the awesome amounts of heat generated by a turbocharger for...
reduction in ambient underhood temperatures & horsepower.
Designed to accommodate most turbos found on the road and track today, our kit contains everything needed to completely insulate your turbo and protect surrounding components from the extreme heat generated by the unit itself. From the large over the road trucks, to Import Performance Cars, we have designed this kit's universal nature to give you the custom fit and finish on any unit you would like to enhance.
The Turbo Insulation Kit will decrease underhood temperatures, while reducing turbo lag and increasing horsepower in the process. Insulating your turbo will also avoid premature failure on costly engine components due to thermal deterioration.
