    Advice on using Reflect-a-gold.

    Ok, i've recently bought a nuespeed induction kit and it has been recommended that i wrap the piping in reflect-a-gold. I've got a roll of 1.5" by 30 feet.

    Do i start from turbo end or filter end? Do i cut into strips of do i keep the roll constant?

    thanx

    Alright mate
    What I did was cut it into strips, for mine they were 10 inches long, wrapped all the straight sections first and then did the curves cutting bits depending how they fitted. It doesn't take very long to do it. Just make sure you overlap all the strips a bit.

    I've just emailed them asking if it's possible to just order the heatshield at the filter end as thats the only thing missing from the nuespeed kit. Gotta say, loving my nuespeed induction kit now, sucks like a $10 hooker on crack, lol. and it's even improved my mpg too.
