anyone have any results good or bad using header wrap on the exhaust pipe to cut down heat in an enclosed car ? thanks
I have mine wrapped all the way back to the muffler with two layers. Sure does help keep my feet and the car a little cooler. I had a dirt track driver once told me that it also helps increase the HP just a bit but I didn't see it on the T.
Mine is wrapped, I think it makes a difference
If you do wrap an exhaust, the two different wraps I have used both smoked like crazy for a couple of minutes after they get hot the first time. Start it outside the first time you start the car with new wrap.
I recommend that if you plan to wrap the pipe you should get a stainless pipe. The steel pipe will rot more quickly when wrapped with the asbestos or Nomex stuff.
I have dual exhaust and both pipes are wrapped. It makes a noticeable difference in the temperature of the floorboards. Especially with mine being a speedster and sitting much closer to the pipes.
Ever seen a wrapped original Ford exhaust pipe? My '13 was driven from new to 1940, and no one bothered to do that.
I wrap the exhaust pipe on my MT 500 car. Tryin' to keep all them horsepowers contained and restrained.
I wrap mine too. Keeps the wife's feet from getting so hot. Got it from amazon. Search exhaust wrap there and it is the first one that pops up. Says "best seller". Really good stuff.
Sounds like a good idea to me. Keep us posted with results.
Have the stuff on a motorcycle I own and it really keeps the heat in.
You are going to want to make sure the pipes are coated well, or the wrap can hold moisture that will rust the pipes.
