    Exhaust wrap??

    Do you think exhaust wrap is a good idea on these jetskis to keep some of the heat out of the engine compartment?

    There is some on ebay for about 10 bucks. Do you think this is a cheap way to keep heat soak out?

    and what are you going to wrap
    the liquid cooled exhaust j-pipe

    don't see how that will help much, the exhaust is already cooled with the water jacket unlike a auto aplication that get burnning hot.

    i think you would be better off with a bilge blower fan.

    I have an Atwood fan in the air intake right under the glove box (RXP). The fan blows air into the hull and you can feel the hot air being pushed out of the vent behind the seat. When it's a little cool, the wife keeps her hands over the vent to keep them warm
