^ Totally agreed.

Dyno queens will always want bigger numbers, but to me, honestly, it's just a tool. As long as there's good gains (peak is one thing, but what about the overall powerband? ) and no problems, that's what I - particularly for a daily-driver - am after.

Is header wrap just as good as keeping heat out as it is keeping it in?

^^^ Why would you need to keep heat out?!

It definitely won't hurt - insulation is insulation.

^^^ I've seen wrapped intakes when they get near the turbo, but I would guess they are a different type of wrap. I'm not much help.

Hopefully nobody harasses you about header wrap on an intake. Looks nice and functional to me anyway.

Question (genuine, honest question):

Does header wrap also *reflect* heat as efficiently as some of the specific-for "reflectivity" stuff?

I can't help but think that's the reason why people don't do "all-in-one" with header wrap, and instead choose the also-reflective stuff for the intake/charge piping?

TSi touched on my thoughts. I just wasn't able to put my thoughts into the right words.

My thought is this: The header wrap is an insulator, one way or another. Therefore, it ought to insulate the cooler air inside the intake tube.

^ I definitely agree - that it should help insulate, based on its insulation properties.

I'm just wondering about the technical aspects of - or, rather, what makes those "reflective" wraps "better," for lack of better words.

Since I'm short on tech know-how, I thought I should just ask.
