Racing & Performance
Excessive heat can cause performance and factory fuel injectors and sensors to be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak; which can cause rough idling, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems. In addition, cooler fuel injectors perform more efficiently with a more consistent throttle response.
To reduce problems associated with vapor lock and heat soak, DEI has introduced heat reflective fuel injector and sensor covers that are now available in packs of two, four, six or eight. The covers efficiently reflect direct and radiant heat away from injectors and sensors. Constructed of high-temperature rated glass fiber material bonded to a heat reflective aluminized material, DEI’s Fuel Injector and Sensor Covers work well on most any engine configuration with stock or aftermarket injectors and sensors.
DEI’s Protect-A-Wire™ offers a cost effective way to protect expensive spark plug wire sets from burning, cracking or hardening. It is also an excellent choice for wire looms for a clean wiring installation. Excessive under hood heat can cause arching, engine misfire or damage. Protect-A-Wire is constructed of high temp resistant glass fiber material developed to handle 500°F direct heat or 1200°F radiant heat. Ideal for all electrical wiring, speedometer cable, or hose up to 10mm in diameter, Protect-A-Wire is resistant to hot oil and chemical spills, and adds protection against dirt and abrasion.
Now, DEI offers seven bulk spool options in colors; black, red and blue; all in 50’ lengths. Diameter sizes range from 3/16”, 5/16” and 1/2”, ideal for race teams, engine builders and race shops for a clean, professional look that works with any electrical wiring, hose or fuel line.
Constructed of an aluminized heat reflective material backed with a high temperature rated glass fiber insulation barrier, the new mini DEI Versa Shield™ protects starters and other components from failure due to heat soak. Capable of reflecting radiant heat up to 2000°F and direct heat up to 500°F, this innovative thermal product installs easily and can be trimmed to size.
Its convenient hook and loop closure design allows the shield to wrap around the starter and attach in minutes. Most starters will not require removal. Simply wrap the starter with the aluminized side out, trim length to fit and secure the edges by pressing the black loop material sewn into the material into the sewn in strip of black hook material.
Developed with a universal design to fit most mini sized starters (5.25” wide x 16.5” long) the shield is also ideal for multiple components where heat can affect performance—master cylinders, distributors, fuel pumps and more.
Don’t let excessive exhaust heat become a power drain. Top engine builders and racers trust DEI thermal wrap to expedite exhaust flow for higher velocity and maximum HP by controlling heat to produce increased exhaust flow and a cooler intake charge.
DEI’s Exhaust Wrap Kit provides everything you need to completely wrap a set of small block or V-6 headers in one package. The kit includes two rolls of 2 inch by 50 ft. wrap designed to protect up to 1500° F, one can of HT Silicone Coating that coats, protects and preserves the wrap after installation, and eight 8 inch and four 14 inch 304 Stainless Steel Locking Ties to ensure long-lasting durability and hold. A free Locking Tie Tool is included to lock the ties tight and works with any ¼” drive. DEI’s stitched-in wrap guide line protects against overlapping for a professional and tight fit.
DEI, the leading brand for automotive thermal protection, is proud to announce the availability of two new thermal protection products at AutoZone® stores nationwide.
DEI’s Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve with LR Technology and Reflect-A-GOLD are now available at more than 4500 AutoZone stores joining DEI’s flagship thermal wrap product - Titanium Exhaust Wrap with LR Technology™ in the 2” x 50 ft. length.
The newly added Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve with LR Technology provides thermal protection for wires, lines and cables from the damaging effect of direct and radiant heat; up to 1800°F direct heat, and 2500°F radiant. It is available at AutoZone in the ½” ID x 4 ft. length (part #010065).
DEI’s ONYX Series™ Turbo Shield is now available for many popular OEM and aftermarket T-4 sized turbos including Garrett and Mitsubishi. While first introduced for the GT22 and GT25 turbocharger, DEI is proud to build on the popularity of its ONYX Series line to offer this same premium product for the T4. Developed for extreme heat protection, quick spool up time and maximum turbo performance, the ONYX Series Shield maintains a more consistent temperature in the turbo for increased efficiency and decreased turbo lag.
DEI’s ONYX Series shield features the company’s most heat resistant textiles and its highest grade silica liner for extreme heat protection. Recognizable for its rich, black carbon fiber look, this Made in the USA shield, comes with newly designed stainless steel attachment anchors and is constructed with double reinforced seams, inside and out.
DEI’s EXO Series™ Exhaust and Pipe Wrap provides superior heat protection for pipes and exhaust repeatedly exposed to abrasive or high impact environmental conditions.
Whether its hill climbing, rally or autocross racing, off-roading, dirt track racing, the EXO Series thermal wrap is the most durable and rugged wrap on the market.
Uniquely constructed with a dual layer design of high temp glass fiber encased in a 304 grade stainless steel exoskeleton, this wrap provides rugged good looks, durability and superior heat protection. The exoskeleton construction creates an air gap between the wrap and the pipe for additional cooling and allows the wrap to overlap and lock together for a tight, secure fit.
Previously available in both black and tan in either 1.5” x 10’ or 20’ lengths, the EXO Series is now available in a new 30’ length in both colors.
#010058 1.5” x 30’ Black – New Part Number
#010059 1.5” x 30’ Tan – New Part Number
#010075 1.5” x 10’ Tan
Design Engineering’s Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties are the most ideal way to tighten wrap for automotive applications, especially for high heat applications such as exhaust wrap.
DEI’s Positive Locking Ties are made of 316 stainless steel in a ladder-style design with a ratchet tightening system and low profile clasp. Made for high heat applications, the ties can withstand heat in excess of 2500° F. Resistant to abrasive chemicals, the ties also can be used to secure electrical wires, cables, hoses and fluid lines.
DEI now offers a free Locking Tie Tool with the purchase of its Positive Locking Tie Kit (part #010219). The kit includes eight 9” x 8mm and four 14” x 8mm stainless steel ties and one Tie Tool.
