    Heat-wrap / ceramic coat on manifold

    I did a search but didnt find anything, so sorry if this has been posted before....

    Ive contacted Sam via facebook in regards to getting a v3 relentless downpipe and sports cat, But im thinking maybe getting a manifold at the same time. Saves messing about behind the engine twice if i discover the standard is close to throwing in the towel!

    Does everyone heat wrap / ceramic coat thier manifolds or just leave as is? Fancy reducing some of these under bonnet temps a little before i start working on the induction side.

    I know its going to create a risk in raising the temps of the turbo...which ive read the k04 doesnt like, but im not planning on doing too much performance wise anyway............... Famous last words....!
    I just want to improve a few things and reduce the lag. Which is why im planning FMIC.

    hello mate well ive seen this come up a few times and most people add plenty of heat shields rather than wrap the exhaust, cheaper and less harmful for the heat build up around the Turbo

    decent ceramic coating will cost as much as the manifold.. Zircotec high performance coatings, ceramic coatings, engine, automotive, motorsport, exhaust manifold and header coatings. for example
    excellent coating but dear
