PARTS COUNTER: Performance Plus Connection – Vulcan Heat Braid & Flame Shield

We are so fortunate to have built a relationship with the fine people at Performance Plus Connection. Their customer service is amazing and their product line is second to none. We used their Vulcan Fire sleeve in our Pro Street Camaro "Project Big Red." All of our front to rear wiring is protected by this amazing product as are all of our fuel lines. Be sure to keep an eye out on this project when we officially reveal it in early summer. Every car that comes into our Custom Shop leaves with one of their products. We protect all of our electrical work with a fire sleeve, but at an absolute minimum do yourself a favor and put your starter wires in one of these and protect them from the headers. - JT


Vulcan Heat Braid, flexible woven wire loom, is a braided material with a lateral split that allows it to open up to fit over a wiring harness or preassembled line. Unlike convoluted rigid tubing the Vulcan Heat Braid will bend into a tight radius without distortion or splitting open. Protect your wiring and clean up the looks of your wiring.
