I used "header/exhaust" wrap that you can get at summit or any other performance type shop. I also used the metal ties to secure the wrap.
x2, done this repair twice (on two different rigs).
If you were to go to a speed/performance shop, you may be able to pick up the short amount you need for almost free, I'd bet.
I used stainless wire to hold mine.
NO help here...
..but welcome to MUD
Do you wrap the wire loom, or the ERG pipes, or both?
I wrapped the loom.
here ya go:
Thermo-Tec: EXPRESS SLEEVES
I had to really reduce this photo to post it here but this is what we did - DEI (Design Engineering Incorporated) hi-tech / hi-temp heat shielding on the outside, DEI heat sheath sleeve on the inside and DEI stainless steel wire ties holding it tightly together. It has held up really well and I am sure it is protecting the loom from the EGR heat. HTH.
I noticed those two cylinders at the rear are lookin a bit more worn than the one's up front.
You can just flip your engine around to balance that out................................
Its just the way the flash hit the surfaces there. Trust me, ANY excuse to buy a brand new block from Dan the Man and I woulda dun it!
Well see, there ya go..! Just show him the picture.. and whoever else you have to convince that your in need of a new engine.
The whole flash thingy ..we'll just keep that between me & you
I used some tape...got it from Summit Racing for a reasonable price....
ps: I also got rid of the EGR valve assy. completely.
