For all you Trail/Sport riders who have wrapped your header. Did you reinstall the heat shield? I wrapped mine this weekend. I sealed it up with the high heat silicone paint that the wrap manufacturer recommends. I also have a D&D exhaust arriving this week which will also help with the heat issue. I don't want to reinstall the heat shield but I also don't want holes in my firewall.

I had my header ceramic coated on my AC trail before I sold it. They coated the heat shield as well. I would get a non contact thermometer (amazon $15-$20) and check your temps before I worried about adding the heat shield back on. Aftermarket exhaust will help as well. Removes the blockage (cat converter) in the muffler. I also added thermo tec heat shield to the firewall also. Self stick versions on amazon and summit racing. I had temps of 600-800 degrees on the header, 400 on the added thermo tec and 105 on the inside of the firewall behind passenger seat. Hope this helps.
