Excessive heat generated from an engine block, exhaust system or turbo can easily affect a vehicle’s ignition system. Spark plug leads and boots can harden, burn or crack, leading to arching, engine misfire or even complete ignition system failure.
Leading heat protection experts, DEi have produced thermal protection boots for spark plugs for many years, but now they have just released the next generation of spark plug boots providing greater than ever protection against heat damage.
DEI’s Titanium Protect-A-Boots can withstand direct heat up to 1,800°F (982°C), and radiant heat to 2,800°F (1537°C) - conventional glassfibre material boots can’t take much more than 1,200°F (650°C)!
The ‘Titanium’ title actually refers to the material’s titanium-like strength rather than what it’s actually made of. The boots are manufactured from pulverised lava rock that is extruded into fibres and set in an extremely tight weave. This unique material and construction provides added resistance to heat, chemicals, abrasions and contaminants while providing maximum durability and toughness. Tough they may be, but they are still pliable enough to fit most straight or angled spark plug boots of all diameters and lengths.
DEi Titanium Protect-A-Boots are suitable for all race, high performance street and off-road vehicles that are prone to excessive engine compartment heat, especially those with high powered turbos or where the exhaust system is adjacent to the spark plugs.
DEi Titanium Protect-A-Boots provide protection for cars, motorcycles, powerboats - in fact anything with a petrol engine!
They are available in packs of two or eight and are available from DEi dealers worldwide.
