    If you asking about the ones on the harness then it is Repco electical tape.
    They resemble most to the original, without any pattern, shiny, and sticking well. The colours also important, Toyota used yellow tape at the firewall grommets and on a few other certain points and some red and green on the harness behind the dash.

    No way! The extractor stays.
    The hotbox was the sillyest design ever made.. it melts down the manifold and totally unecessary. Its like putting a plug in the middle of the exhaust! Also the output power is decreased by the old 6:1 exhaust. No way!
