I have my intake done with Cool Tape from DEI. You will need two rolls though for 30ft.

Boost tubes will be done soon.....good job biggy !

ScramHD is right, it will take two of the 16ft rolls to do it right... However, I did not tape the boost tubes for lack of room, but it still helped IMO to ad the bedliner to them cause like I said before my avg egt's went down by about 150* they also fall MUCH faster when off the throttle! I mean, when I am going down hill at 65 the egts have actually dropped to 200* and this is on a trip where I have run most of the day in both city and highway traffic!!!

wouldnt that exhaust wrap work just as well and that stuff isnt all that high and it can be removed fairly easily if you need it off for something
