  • Protecting oil cooler lines with headers

    Has anyone found a good way to protect the SVT oil cooler water lines with headers installed?
    I wrapped my water lines with exhaust wrap but I don't like it as a permanent solution. I would love to come up with some kind of heat shield. Just curious if anyone has any good ideas.
    Your car is uglier than I am! uh...that didnt come out right.

    I've used Aeroquip firesleeve for oil lines that run too close to exhaust components. Firesleeve is a glass fiber insulation with a Silicone rubber outer layer. It's very durable and still pliable after many years underhood near some rather hot stuff.
    1" Firesleeve will fit over 5/8" ID heater hose, it's $1.29 an inch in that size.

    Thermo-sleeve is a newer product, I haven't used it, but it might be worth a try.

      Nice finds! Thank you. I don't know why I didn't search for something like that.
