turbo back exhaust...

has anyone heat wrapped the down pipe when installing an aftermarket exhaust? im going to be buying the MBRP 4" turbo back "off road" exhaust and noticed the stock exhaust has heat shield wrap on the down pipe off the turbo, just wondering if you guys have put it back on or used some sort of wrap.... thanks

I didn't when I did mine, I have shielding on the motor and firewall. And be careful with that stuff, it's full of fiberglass. NOT FUN if you are under it.

Yeah sometimes you really have to think about wrapping your tube.

yeah just like the pic, i just dont want excessive heat on the motor. im thinking about using header wrap til it bends towards the back. I work in HVAC so i know ALL about fiberglass, and it sucks big time

Is the down pipe mild steel or stainless? I've seen wrapped steel headers rot within a year when driven daily including wet weather.

'06 F250 FX4 6.0L/auto-studded, O-ring'd, deleted, turbo'd, inject'd, lifted.... typical bolt on

You dont have to wrap the downpipe.. No worries. I have a 4" dp not wrapped.. Only thing wrapped on mine is the wrapped up-pipes- this is where the most heat will be created i would think
