Wrapping a Downpipe

I've searched the wrap threads on here but I couldnt find the exact length... For those who have done it, how much wrap did you use?

Im getting 2" x 50', I hope its enough since I dont want to re-order.

It's really not worth it. It definitely rusted out my JT pipe.

I found one roll did the job, I take the dp off the car, wrap it and then seal it with the silica paint to help keep it sealed and keep moisture out. I have had no issues with rust at all, but I am out west where the humidity is much lower.

I can say it made a pretty big difference in under-hood temps and I wrap every dp that I have on a performance car. I also try and retain the heat shield when possible. I removed the sound dampening and the back rubber seal to allow for the air to exit easier. At one time, I had every pipe under my hood wrapped, ic hoses, deliver pipe, dp and even the header. I definetely noticed my boost would hold and stay stable for a longer period of time.

Yes, I am very sure Rafal. Thanks for the sentiment though... Wait, should I do it? I mean Im scared I might hurt the car.

Chad: my DP is stainless steel, I think it should hold.

John: thanks for the info, I will do that then. God, Im already collecting projects for the shop day

I roll was plenty for me... 2" was fine for the dp, but next time, I'll get the 1" to do the manifold/header. And definitely give it a good coat or two of the DEI high heat paint or similar, keeps the moisture to a minimum and sticks surprisingly well.
