Choosing Exhaust Wraps: Fast and Hot Tips
The simple modification of installing exhaust wraps to your vehicle's exhaust system can greatly benefit you by:
- Reducing overall air temperature in the engine compartment, which increases engine efficiency
- Protecting your electrical components from intense heat
- Increasing exhaust speed by providing the insulation needed to keep the exhaust gases at a high temperature.
- Increasing engine life by reducing the amount of heat that goes back to the engine.
Types of exhaust wraps
- Basic wraps - These are the most common exhaust wraps. They are made from fiberglass and can withstand temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. They can be a bit difficult to install and are not as durable as the other types. We recommend applying silicone spray coating to make them last longer.
- Premium wraps - These are capable of withstanding even higher temperatures with a limit of around 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit. You will notice that instead of being white, they have a darker tan or brown coloring due to the treating process. These are also made of fiberglass and could also benefit from silicone coating.
- Titanium wrap - These are the toughest ones out there. Instead of fiberglass, they are made from volcanic rock. Since they are not made of fiberglass, you won't need to wear gloves when handling them and they don't need to be coated with silicone spray either. They are more expensive, but are definitely the most durablecapable of handling 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit with little trouble.
- Although exhaust wraps are easy to install, it is often worth the extra cost to buy exhaust wrap kits. These make installation even easier by providing tools like stainless steel locking ties and silicone coatings. They also provide you with an instruction manual.
- Famous brands include DEI, Thermotech, and Heat Shield.

That's a Wrap!: How to Install an Exhaust Wrap
Your engine's exhaust system is an environment with a LOT of heat. The gases released by the combustion system easily exceed 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit. In this high-temperature, high-pressure environment, your exhaust wraps are essential in reducing heat by insulating your exhaust system. With exhaust wraps installed, your vehicle's performance will improve and you can prevent the damage caused by overheating. You can wrap up this project yourself with some basic tools, skills, and safety precautions.
Difficulty Level: Easy
Here's what you'll need:
- Knife or scissors
- Stainless steel safety wire
- High-heat paint
- Exhaust wrap
- Protective gloves
- Vehicle owner manual
Step 1: Open the hood of your vehicle and spray your exhaust pipes with the high-heat paint. Wait for the paint to dry completely.
Step 2: Put on your protective gloves. Exhaust wrap contains pieces of fiberglass so you need to wear gloves before handling it. Take the exhaust wrap and soak it completely in water.
Step 3: Take your exhaust wrap and securely make one wrap around the very end of an exhaust pipe. Make another wrap directly on top of it. After that, wrap your way around to the other end of the pipe in such a way that each succeeding wrap covers half of the previous one. When you get to the other, extreme end of the pipe, make two complete wraps over it. It's a good idea to pull on the wrap every few passes to maintain tension.
Step 4: Cut the wrap with a knife or a pair of scissors. Take the stainless steel safety wire and place it around the center of the last wrap. Secure it by twisting it at the top then push it flat against the wrap to hide it.
Step 5: Repeat the process with the other exhaust pipes.
Step 6: Start your vehicle. The heat will cause the wrap to dry. You will see a lot of smoke until all the water evaporates.
Make sure you use high-heat paint and not any other kind. Regular paint will burn and cause damage to your engine.
