Horsepower means heat. Every automotive performance manufacturer knows it, and it is often a problem folks face in trying to keep stuff from melting on their high horsepower engine. Luckily, while engine components and management systems have come so far as to allow crazy power levels, heat protection systems have kept up to control temps so we can enjoy those power levels. But that doesn’t mean people use them properly. We regularly see folks who are stuck fixing wiring issues because they don’t protect their wiring bits properly from all the hot parts. We’ve been there ourselves. It is common to underestimate the temperatures achieved, and how far away wiring needs to be in order to stay safe. But with today’s wire shielding products, you can get away with much less room and keep things clean, cool, and working properly. One of those products is Holley’s new Nomex split loom for underhood wiring.
Here is all the info from Holley:
Temperatures under your hood can be brutal. Throw a supercharger or a turbo into the mix and things just get hotter. Holley EFI’s new Nomex Split Loom helps keep critical wiring safe from the heat. Nomex is a heat and flame-resistant fiber that won’t melt, drip, or support combustion, which helps to keep your wiring protected. Available in multiple diameters, Holley EFI Nomex Split Loom has an operating range of -76º to 392º F.
