I doubt it will hurt anything. I'm not sure how much it would help though

I definitely won't hurt, I don't know it will do much for performance. If youwrap the up-pipes, that should help your turbo spool a little quicker

Ok thanks.I actually did wrap the up pipes,was just inquiring if wrapping the down pipe would help lower radiant heat.

Ceramic coated exhaust components, I've been told, hold heat in better than the wrap

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

I have heard that too. I have also heard that ceramic coating empties your wallet faster than the wrap

I know this is an old thread....

How hard it it to heat wrap ONLY the up-pipes going to the turbo? I want to help turbo spool but have never dealt with heat wrapping

Also, where would I get the "wrap" and what exactly is it?

Thank you for the help guys

There are a number of different products and most of them are only rated to 1200* continuous with a 2000* intermittent. Mine are wrapped with a 2000* continuous 3000* intermittent over ceramic coating. I used Heatshield Products Inferno Header Wrap and purchased it from Summit Racing. It will take the best part of 100 ft to wrap the Y pipe properly. I used 35 ft just from the pass. side manifold to the upper connection where it joins the Y pipe. The stuff ain't cheap.
