Like I said above, I HAVE USED THE HEADER WRAP!, Not just guessing what
could happen.

In my opinion and experience, The exhaust wrap won't keep extra heat in the
it keeps the header and exhaust from transfering heat into the engine
Also, why would a Turbo engine require header wrap, and not a normally

Maybe we need to run a few test with a head temp gauge and oil temp gauge, with
 and without header wrap.  Anybody interested?

See ya
