Thermal performance product specialist, Design Engineering Inc (DEI) has released its latest product; injector heat covers that are said to prevent vapour lock and heat soak.
According to DEI, ‘high under bonnet temperature can have an effect on fuel injectors causing vapour lock or heat soak which in turn gives rise to rough idling, difficult starting and other potential engine problems’.
DEI’s solution, the ‘DEI Fuel Injector Reflective Heat Covers’ – over come these issues by reflecting direct and radiant heat away from the injectors. Made from high-temperature rated glass fibre material bonded to a heat reflective, aluminised material, the covers have been designed for simple installation thanks to a split design – allowing them to wrap around each individual injector – before being secured with a sewn-in hook and loop fastening edge.
The covers are universal fitment, with DEI stating that the product can ‘be used on almost any engine configuration with stock or aftermarket fuel injectors’. DEI also states that as a result of the fuel injector’s cooler temperature, they will perform more efficiently, offering a more consistent throttle response.
