(picks!) My Thermal Pipes

Well after weeks of waiting for the right o2 housing I finally got it. Which meens I can finally make good on those pictures I promised all of you. Well without further delay here they are.

Guys I think the whole set up (high temp spray, SS ties, and wrap) came out to around $60.00. Thats cheep for the thermal efficancy gains!!! If your looking for someone who can get this product just call P-Werks. We can get just about any DEI product for you. Believe me guys its worth it! Thank you Jon for pointing me in the right direction!

The installation looks great :thumbsup: ! This should be a modification that every SRT owner does the results are outstanding!

Is the car ready to test yet?

Not really. Its like insulation, it is there to keep heat in the downpipe and keep the whole process of exhausting spent A/F going faster. Your not creating boost nor runing leaner due to it so EGT's should not raise at the manifold.

NO, actually wrapping your pipes will cause the exhaust gases to exit faster (scavenging effect) and might even lower you EGTs.

That looks really good, but won't that cause your pipes to mummify
and become brittle? I thought that was the forgone conclution of
thermal wraps, that they give good gains but they disindagrate your
pipes. Isn't that why people use ceramic coating, to save the pipes? :confused:

That would be pretty hard to do with stainless steel pipes. I have seen countless stainless steel pipes wraped that have stood the test of time. Most of your mild steel guys use coatings because its a cheep cost affectave way to keep them from rotting out due to rust.
