insulation for downpipe? 4" exhaust

I just installed a diamond eye 4" stainless turbo back system, on my 04 F350 lariat CC DRW 4X4...I love the sound, and the turbo spools much quicker, but I was wondering about the insulating wrap on the factory downpipe. Would it be best to try to insulate the new pipe? or just run it as is? Thanks for the thoughts, I love this site!

Run it as it is... I don't think you have enough room to fit insulation around the dp... My diamond eye is super close to the firewall and actually touched the tranny dip stick tube(I ran heater hose around the dip stick tube to prevent rattling)

Don't worry about insulating the downpipe. The up pipes have more heat in them. If you want to keep under hood temps down wrapping them will accomplish more.

No sorry, I may try to get something up, but I am not the most computer oriented person... I will say I am very happy with the sound (strait thru muffler w/ no cat) Nice tone, and not abnoxiously loud. (I do use the truck to drive my two year old boys around after all...) nice rumble when you get on it, and loud turbo whistle, more low end power with out the restrictive down pipe.
