Default Ideas on wrapping stock exhaust side of turbo?

Well i'm replacing my down pipe so i have a chance to wrap my
stock exhaust housing with some of that cool it wrap, but
theres not alot of room to fully wrap the side where down
pipe connect. i have the snap straps to hold it but maybe
some one has used something else or the turbo insulating
kit from cool it, but that kit looks like it might interfere with the
waste gate rod? maybe they have some spray on stuff?

thanks later

Before you wrap up your pipes with any type of heat shield device it would be good to read what the people who make the stuff have to say about the way it shortens the life of exhaust systems on everyday street driven cars. I found it quite informative. I also then chose not to wrap my pipes.

T-bolt where did you find this info? if its regarding moisture
it never rains here. so rust should not be a big problem.
thanks

Sorry to take so long to reply. I can't quite rember the name of the sight, but it was a roadracing parts supply place. Their point was not one of heat shielding retaining water but it was more about the metal tubing being subjected to a higher heat without the ability to dissapate (spelling) it. This would cause the metal to weaken at welded areas and caused alot of cracking after short periods of everyday use. I may be way off here, so it may benefit you to get a few better informed opinions.
Good Luck.

I heard about the metal rusting but not the weld weaking,
so thats good cause i just got done wraping turboxs downpipe
and theres no way to wrap where the welds are near turbo
flange,so wrapped the rest.

i also tried to wrap the damn turbo exhaust side but not
enough room so i'll just wrap more of the exhaust farther
down.

but good god untill i get my other exhuast portion weld to
the downpipe my car so f**kin loud made alarms across
the street go off, haha tomrrow i got to drive about a mile
to my exhaust shop should be interesting. later
