Don't want to sound like a broken record here, but that really DOES look better now. Sort of an industrial look. Good work!

Looks like 2" wrap? How much length did you need compared to what you ordered? Did you use the sealer? I may consider this for my ADTR intake.

Hmmm......you got a goodwrench Reman trans sitting in your car.

Yep 2"x50' and I used all of it. I wrapped the pipe with aluminum tape and wrapped over that. I didn't use any sealer cause I figured the aluminum tape would take car of that.
And as for the reman, It'* got about 45k on it. I had it replaced it in '02. Poor little guy.
And on a side note, the trans has given me 0 issues since the fluid & filter change. It even shifted at WOT (6400) when I got on it last week. That'* the first time I winded it out that far since october. Otherwise I baby the crap out of it now.

Mike, the sealer will keep the wrap from shifting/fraying, or absorbing water, and make it stay cleaner. You might wanna pick up a can from Jegs or Summit. It looks good, but that sealer might be the long term solution to keeping it looking nice.

OOOOOoooo ok. I was kind of worried about messing it up and having it shift since I always have the intake in and out of the car. I'll put the sealer on the list. Thanks.
