I've always received metal zip ties. GL with that doo hickey.

are the zip ties heat resistant enough for a manifold ?

I recommend not wrapping. It causes the metal to corrode faster and can be a big sponge for flammable liquids. I've used it before and to me it's not worth the tiny increase in performance. If you are trying to protect other things from the heat, use a metal shield/foil instead. Oh, and you could get them coated as well to hold in the heat.

as more and more people keep telling me not to wrap the manifold I'll let it like it is and will try to modify and mount the oem heat shields instead

I wrapped my manifold for all of 5 minutes on my last car until it came loose on the FOERST drive and I noticed it was bright glowing red underneath. I guess thats by design?
