Question Up-Pipes

I have a new set of up-pipes, gaskets and bolt kit all ready for the install. I also have some old header wrap laying around from another project. Would it be beneficial to wrap the pipes before installing them? Would it increase the EGTs as the up-pipes do probably bleed off some heat between the manifolds and the turbo? Good idea or no??

Probably a good idea as they do offer a ceramic coated up-pipe thats supposed to be an upgrade and thats the same principal.

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Up-Pipes

Diesel engine turbos like heat heat causes the gas to expanded and drive the turbine side of the turbo so the more heat you can keep within the up pipes the better. At the same time wrapping the up pipes keep under hood temperatures down and directs the hot air through the turbo not under the hood.

Sweet. Thanks guys. Looks like they make get wrapped up when I figure out how to install them w/o dropping the transmission or pulling the turbo.
