Heat reflective tape is great for improving the appearance of the engine bay but reason it is used to protect components ,reduce engine temperature and increase performance.
Before you think we are saying wrapping your intake will produce more horsepower ,We are not but the effects of having colder air in the intake and reduced engine bay temperature can be massive. Along with the added protection for cables , hoses and other components and this has been proven in studies.
When used correctly, Heat reflective tape can be used to protect engine components by lowering your engine temperature. Lowered intake temperatures create a bigger bang in the combustion chamber and a more powerful and more efficient engine running cycle. Heat reflective tape is important for ensuring that components such as fuel cells, ECUs, heat shields and bulkheads are working at their optimal without the chance of damage due to excess heat.
Silver can reflect away 70 % radiant heat and withstand temperatures of 200°C+ where as gold reflects away 80 % and can withstand heat of up to 450°C.We think that silver looks better but obviously gold is the better product, But you will get great results from silver and its also cheaper.
Gold or silver heat reflective tape is available in rolls of either
: 2.5m x 50mm
: 5.0m x 50mm
: 10m x 50mm
