I was thinking of wrapping my DP.
How much will I need?
Anyone have any for sale?

TIA

NO, but I have a spare fire extinguisher that I will sell you. Why wrap the downpipe anyway? Isn't that kinda like closing the barn door after the horse is gone?

Well i've had my dp wraped for about 3 years now, and no probs.
I can see a potential for fire when wrapping the crossover pipe, from oil leaking on it.
Can't see it from the dp though.
reason to do it, heard it helps reduce under hood temps, keep some of the heat from the upper control bushing.
my o2 though.
bought it from summit, i think it was a 50' roll.

You will need exactly 25ft for a TH DP. I highly recommend it.

Oh ya, get the 2inch wide stuff, can be purchased through summit. DEI is the brand I believe.

got pics of the dp wrapped? Can the dp be wrapped with the dp in the engine or better to remove it?
