Hey guys,

Two of my spark leads are melting on my turbo side manifold, someone suggested i wrap the manifold in heat wrap rather than trying to get some spark leads that would fit better.

Now, is there anything i should know?
How many mm wide is good?
How many mm thick should i get?
Would 10m be enough on average for one manifold?

Anything else i should know?

Here's what im looking at on ebay:

Thanks for your help in advance guys

Also get hold of some heat protective sleeving from Pirtek(& probably other fitting stores) Its orange rubbery coating on the outside & a fiberous coating on the inside.

Heat wrapping works also just dont wrap it too thick near where it bolts too the head,High performance coating(jet hot,HPC etc http://forums.justcommodores.com.au...gs/102942-give-yourself-competetive-edge.html) would be better though.

The sleeving worked wonders on my ex turbo setup,cant remember how much it was around $50-$70 a metre i think,but it ends up being cheaper than new custom length leads every 2 months.
