What tape are you going to wrap it with? Heat Shield tape? There's a company that makes a heatshield sleeve if you're interested. I think the largest diameter was 4" but looking at your tubing, it might be difficult to get it on. Not sure. If you're interested, PM me.

OK. It's not some super secret thing but I've been thinking about doing a custom CAI too. Here's the site with heat shield products.

Thanks, yeah it's 4" PVC tubing, so I think that a 4" sleeve would be a very tight fit if it fit at all. I am going to look into what the best option would be. Any suggestions? I think I saw one person on here do it witht eh heat tape wrap, but I cant remember who off the top of my head. I like the custom fit, i mean i didnt feel like spending 350.00 for a molded piece when i could make one that will perform just as good if not better. The paint job was quick, I am waiting until the spring to get out the sprayer to really give it a nice coat, but who knows I may not need it if it gets wrapped.
