I am trying to work out is better to wrap componants to keep heat in, or does this put stress on those componants as they cant get rid of heat or to vent the bonnet sufficently to get rid of the heat out of the engine bay??????  It would be interesting to put probes under the bonnet to see if heat wrap works better or does venting!

Mearcat,

its a chrome looking insulation paint. Keeps the heat in the pipe and doesn't let it escape into the engine bay.

Where can I get the HPC coating done? Is it expensive?

Can you put your hand on the dump pipe with the engine running after a good thrash...I can.

I use DEI stuff cause it has better wear and tear than thermotech stuff and it has a line marker to help you wrap it evenly.

The worst that can happen is you don't freshly paint and cure before wrapping this will cause the stainless or mild steel to crack after a time.
