John and All, see post #3

Could this exhaust tape wrap be used on the 3208 exhaust pipe, that runs near the air bag???
Some have had heat related air bag failure.

Bill,

Just for grins I wrapped my new pipes with 6" wide exhaust tape.

Easy job when there on the bench. I used SS wire ties every few inches, I don't think it will unwind. I used a paint to seal out moisture and oil I has a cure time somewhat after 1 hour Idling you could place your hand on the pipes just before the exhaust tunnel. After a 30 min. drive home, you could touch the pipes but they were too hot for more than a few seconds. It did not burn me, I touched it three more times not bad once the motor starts to cool down to idle again.

nOT SCIENTIFIC ,bUT i'S AIN'T got no FANCy inFUREDD THERMOMETER

Give it a try,

For Factory style Blankets Ferwin is making blankets for our new S.S. Exhaust, I’m sure they could help with your coach.

I wrapped mine in a similar product that I bought at Summit. I seem to have noticed a difference in temperature in the interior after I wrapped my exhaust pipes a couple of years ago. And yes you are correct in wrapping the exhaust being a good thing close to the air bags. This experiance was filed in my "lessons learned" mental file....

For your viewing pleasure.
5" SS pipes wrapped in exhaust tape.
The black paint is supposed to keep moisture and oil from soaking into the wrap. It is more of a powder than a paint at least it feels like powder to the touch. These are temporary for me, I'll get some Firwin blankets made as soon as I have the time. Firwin's price for Manifold, Turbo and all pipes all the way through the exhaust tunnel, with the newest materials constant heat 1800 plus degrees, Priced at under $800.00

When you contact ATP ask for Roberto, he’s the engineering manager, very knowledgeable and a great guy to deal with.

Robert,

I've been trying to get an exhaust blanket (the piece behind the turbo) for my 87FC from ATP, but Roberto does not seem to have a clue about what I am talking about, even after sending him the part number above. Do you have any other details that might help? Any other people at ATP that might have a clue?

- Rick

Rick, I found this photo with another part number …782C18302
One if the letters (or number) is hard to read…if the above number does not work try 782CT8302

If none of those numbers work I do have the technical drawing Roberto sent me but my new computer will not open the file…I’ll work on that and get it to you when I figure it out.

Just a fallow up on this old post…I never was able to install the manifold covers on this project. There just is not enough room for them on the 87FC. Save yourself the $400 bucks and leave those out if ordering the kit.

Rick & Robert ,

I would appreciate this information, I would also like to replace the exhaust pipe blanket.
