    I've been contemplating having mine done once the welding is done. But hate the idea of more down time.

    ive heard about the corosion from heat wrap...is that something that will really happen? maybe i wont even wrap it if that is the case...i thought maybe people were mistaken or buying cheap material because wont the heat eliminate moisture?

    i used my stimulus check on this and a tork tune so i dont have any money left for a ceramic coating :P

    I'll get it installed at some point this weekend. I'm wrapping mine with titanium exhaust wrap. Both the heat and the two dissimilar should in theory cause some level of corrosion. I'm not worried about it breaking the downpipe. That would take a very very long time. A lot of bike guys at work use this stuff and it makes a big difference so they don't burn their legs. I very interested in keeping the heat away from the intake. I think the positives outweigh the negatives.

    alright..yea i think it really comes down to the quality of material used...

    should i heat wrap the hot side of my turbo as well? i hate the heat shield that came with the car and mine is missing three of the top bolts..pretty annoying to look at and not insulating as well im sure...the wrap i got is the same lava fiber used in a ptp lava blanket i think...says 1800/2500 F...only asking because again ive heard wrapping a turbo or using blankets can hurt the life of it or something?

    Honestly whatever I can put back on I'm going to. I never look under there anyhow haha! If I cared enough I'd get a turbo blanket, but I think those are just snake oil personally. I'll take a pic tomorrow when I finish it up.

    Wrapping it took a little longer than expected being my first time. All and all took me about two hours not a hard job by any means. Getting the bastard out felt like the longest part of the job. I'm super impressed with the sound! It's an overall improvement. It's pretty much the same note just louder and deeper. After the cold start it's very well behaved down low for the neighbors. The turbo spools quicker now I love it. 10/10 would recommend.

    Tune is on backorder. Will post an update once it's all done.

    i wonder if wrapping it from the bottom up instead would help prevent moister from getting trapped? almost reminds me of a shingled roof..idk..

    I think rust has a lot to do with road salt as well. I live in a VERY wet area, but I don't have much problem with rust. My downpipe hasn't shown any issues with a wrap. I suspect salted roads are a big contributing factor, as holding that stuff up against your pipes is very likely to be detrimental. Also the grade of steel used in downpipes varies a lot. I've seen some catless DPs fro mvarious companies that have very low quality metal. The metal used in the ATP seems to be pretty high quality though.
