Are you considering purchasing header and exhaust wrap but are not sure how much you’ll actually need for your vehicle, motorcycle, or marine craft? Our Header and Exhaust Wrap Calculator is designed to help you with just that. Get started on eliminating your heat management issues today!

Why Use Header and Exhaust Wrap?

Exhaust wrap and header heat wrap have a number of benefits for your vehicle. They can reduce temperatures in exhaust pipes by up to 50-percent which helps gases flow through the system faster, ultimately reducing intake temperatures. Less heat means less gas wasted and more power for your vehicle or marine vessel. Lower temperatures under-the-hood means longer lasting, more powerful vehicles, that are more comfortable for you and your passengers.
