Default What wire wrap and tape to get?

I am redoing some of my wiring. What wire wrap and tape do you all recommend for the engine bay? Please no gummy cheapass electrical tape.

Loom, I have no reason to use anything beyond the **** you can get for $0.10/ft at Home Depot Motorsports.

Tape, I use 3M Super 33+ or Super 88.

I hate loom and electrical tape.

I do like the self-fusing silicone tape.

I also like the techflex expanding stuff and shrink tube even more.

I use the computer twist wrap on everything. Its easy to use, doesn't melt, and its dirt cheap.

Loom and zip ties (the teeny ones). Electrical tape and such eventually gets messy, zip ties are a snip away from getting to whatever wiring you need access to.
