Up-pipes, heat shields, and wraps

Ok gonna wrap my up pipe (I know ceramics are better), was hoping if I did this if I could get rid of the heat sheilds on them.

Anyone have any luck getting rid of various heat shields and what was required to accomplish this. Thanks.

IMO... I would ceramic coat, wrap, and keep all the heat shields... Why not


Theoretically it should keep down engine bay temps, increase spool up, and looks cool

Because heat shields are a PAIN IN THE ARSE when it comes to working on stuff. JMO, but I think you can acheive all you want to with ceramic coating and heat wrap.

You know air makes an EXCELLENT insulator... Probably the best one in fact.... It helps when you have adequate space between stuff...

Thanks for the entertaining help guys. Personally I hate heat shields but sometimes they are necessary.
