DE down Pipe insulation

Has anyone put header wrap or another form of insulation around their downpipe? Sure seems mighty close to Auto tranny and cooler lines. I am looking for ideas of what others have done. Just complete a complete DE turbo back with muffler, love the sound it produces. Just worried about the transmission heat issues though.

Not happy with it tho. When I do it again I'm gonna do a stainless pipe with a heat shroud.

The heat tape or "header wrap" can rust a pipe out quicker then flies on ****. Nascar actually banned it I hear.

Header wrap is bad, it trap in moisture and causes the pipes to rust out extremely fast. I recommend Second Skin Products. This works greats NOISE & VIBRATION COATINGS - Firewall - Liquid Thermal Barrier - Second Skin Audio

I don't think you posted that to spray on the DP, but just putting it out there. Its not rated for the temp a DP needs

I didn't, I sprayed my firewall, it cut the engine noise and heat in half...

Subscribed. My bronco is already hot on the floor/firewall with the gas motor and spray bed liner, I am worried when it gets the power stroke

Rusting already..... bad job was done. All the good shops around me don't do it because it's not profitable or the cost will be too high. Should have just went with the stainless TYMAR down pipe.
