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

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

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.
