UTV Motor and Drivetrain / Re: Header wrap - yes or no?
« Last post by dsrace on November 01, 2019, 09:45:02 AM »
so i guess i never paid attention to the manifolds used on the suby. that his huge! prob longer than the up pipes on a 7.3 ford diesel lol    budlight i would most def wrap that infact buy a spray can of 2000* paint ( yes i know its as good as advertised) double wrap that manifold then paint it with that black 2000* paint. that will keep the wrap from fraying on you and the double wrap will help send more heat ( aka drive pressure) to that turbo for better response!

looks like John made A change to his header in that area budlight. See the added gusset installed below the wie. By the way Budlight this Header is for sale. I ran it for one summer on my old 2.0 subie Motor Befor going to the 2.5.

WHen you get the header on the engine,take a torch and heat each side for 2-3 inches and around the gusset red hot to relax the stress in the tube or it will just crack again for sure.

If you do end up with a new header, or making this one all cyborg like mine, something to consider.. Not saying that yours isn't doing the job!

Yes, I think so.  Came from outback, ceramic coated


put a magnet on it  ;) 304 ss has a tiny bit of carbon so it will have a tiny magnetic pull. good ss will not at all but nothing wrong with 304!

Good info, thanks.  I'll add the wrap and a turbo blanket for now.  If the header takes a dump, then a new one and maybe a mechanical heat shield.

The crack is where the tape is, both sides.  I have it all bugger welded up now and added the gusset underneath.  Seems like a common subi issue, I think fast almost lost his whole turbo one day from the header cracking.  I want the heat wrap as I keep melting the timing cover, letting in sand and ruining the belt and pulleys.   That costs a lot more than a header does.  Now after welding the header and adding the gusset, of course it shrank and is a PITA to install now, need a damn crowbar.
