    My wrapped B&B were looking beat. Gave them a Fire proof ceramic spray, then Titanium lava wrap. Much better than the fiberglass stuff I used before.

    looks good! Will wearing latex gloves keep the fiberglass away? I'm going to wrap my headers soon.

    Soak the wrap in a 5 Gal bucket of water before you install it. It will keep the fibers to a minimum and allow you to stretch it so that it doesn't come loose/sag.

    But not if it's titanium wrap, they don't recommend wetting or silicone spray. Gloves may help, but it's never my hands that get itchy, it's always my arms that get it bad. Just remember to wash in cool water after.

    Re: Blower build w/pics

    I planned on doing an Omega thermistor mod for my Iat sensor, because my sensor that was on the whipple was suspect. When I finally pulled it, I was right.


    I know coolant sensors can be used for NA set ups, but definitely not recommended for FI. Now I can see why this little heat sink was getting heat soaked, and giving me false high intake temperature readings. Not sure why somebody would think it was a good idea to use this in this set up???
    Anyway here's the new sensor I'll be putting it, probably more than adequate as is, but I'll be doing the Omega thermistor mod to this sensor housing.
