DEI Heat Reflective Fuel Injector and Sensor CoversAVON LAKE, OHIO (FEBRUARY 8, 2016) – Excessive heat can cause performance and factory fuel injectors and sensors to be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak which can cause rough idling, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems. Also, cooler injectors perform more efficiently with a more consistent throttle response.

DEI has now introduced heat reflective Fuel Injector and Sensor Covers that are available in packs of two, four, six or eight, that efficiently reflects direct and radiant heat away from injectors and sensors. Constructed of high-temperature rated glass fiber material bonded to a heat reflective aluminized material, DEI’s Fuel Injector and Sensor Covers work well on most any engine configuration with stock or aftermarket injectors and sensors.

 


 

DEI EXO™ Protect-A-BootsAVON LAKE, OHIO (JANUARY 28, 2016) – DEI’s new EXO Series™ Protect-A-Boot provides maximum spark plug boot and wire heat protection. Ideal for all grassroots and professional motorsports, including extreme sports, the EXO Series spark plug boot provides top-of-the-line protection for your spark plug wires against high direct or radiant heat.

The EXO Series boot features dual layer material construction of two layers of high temperature Silica glass fiber encased in a tough outer exoskeleton of 304 grade stainless steel mesh.  The mesh prevents direct contact with the inner Silica lining and additionally provides an insulating air gap barrier. The dual layer construction and tough exterior provides a higher level of heat dissipation and abrasion resistance for high heat or abrasion prone environments such as off-road and desert racing.

 


 

DEI Speed SleevesAVON LAKE, OHIO (JANUARY 18, 2016) – Excessive under-the-hood heat generated by exhaust pipes and headers robs horsepower, puts electrical components at risk and reduces overall performance.

Speed Sleeves offer a time saving alternative to completely wrapping headers from top to bottom, and can also be used for spot heat protection on any pipe or manifold.

Also sold as a kit, Speed Sleeves has everything needed for a quick and simple install including 8” wide exhaust wrap, locking fasteners and stainless steel locking ties. Available for purchase in two color options, tan and black, it is available for either a four or six cylinder engine (12’ of wrap) or eight cylinder (16’ of wrap).
