Where can I get red wire loom that wont melt? Ive searched everywhere I can think of but I cant seem to find any. I bought some off ebay but the the color sucks. It is also very soft so Im sure its going to melt. I know about the GM white and green stripe looms and I plan on using that around the exhaust and other out of sight high heat areas. Anyone know where I can get some good loom?

Your correct,the soft loom will most likely melt (I should know,I bought some cheep soft stuff from pepboys and it melted a good 14 inches from the engine)Try useing the words Red wire loom in your favorite search engine.

Watch where you install that wire loom. Most of them are made from cheap polypropelyn and have a very low melting temperature. You could even start a fire inthe engine compartment if the melted plastic falls on any part of the exhaust. There are some that are meant for higher temperatures, but even those should not be used in close proximity to hot surfaces. I don't know if anyone makes them out of Teflon or nylon as those would be high temperature resistant.
