to wrap or not to wrap?
I will soon be buying and installing the RR thru-hull exhaust and intercooler with RR plumbing. Since the parts are metal should I use some header wrap to ward of some heat?
Probably more concerned with the exhaust. If the metal pipe is wrapped it could keep some heat out of the hull.
What do you think?

It helped a lot on the PPG, I do not see why it wont with the new one.

Anyone have any links on some good exhaust wrap ?
Here are ones I found but I'm not sure what would work the best.
I've heard of some sort of paint application but can't find the link.

I just planned on getting some header wrap from my local "speed shop". Sorry, but I don't know the brand. If someone has a better product I'm all ears.

Plan on wrapping the pipe on the thru-hull exhaust. Also planned on wrapping the pipe from the intercooler to the intake. Will leave to pipe from the SC to the IC uninsulated. The thought behind that is to let some heat out before it gets to the IC and keep the air cool after it leaves the IC.
May not do much good, but it seems logical in my feeble mind

Wrapping the exhaust pipes and intercooler plumbing is what i did, and the hull stays much cooler now. But if you run outside air , in hull temps don't really matter much. I picked up the Wrap from Pep Boys.
