i used basically "bailing" wire and metal hose clamps. I wrapped the tape then followed it with the wire, then i used the metal clamps on the ends. You just need to make sure that the wire you use follows the wrap fairly tight or it will loosen up as you go..takes 2 guys. Here is how i did it;
Do one wrap at the beginning of the header, put a O clamp "loosely" at the beginning of the header, insert the wire under the o clamp and then tighten it down.... once you get that started continue wrapping the header with wrap , followed by the wire...wire can be spaced about 1-2 inches per wrap around the header. when you get to the junction, use another O clamp over the wire...hope that helps. Split
BTW..i also bought heat shielding and the metal zip ties...I havent needed to install the shielding since the wrap worked well enough, the metal zip ties were too much of a PITA since you need to use a zip tie gun or visegrips to pull them tight enough. ( i recommend taking the headers off, but be careful, as with any exhaust system you may break a bolt, soak them good for a day with PB)
