I wrapped the header with exhaust wrap and I'm working on wrapping the turbo. I also fabbed up a cai which lowered intake temps by about 40 degrees. I need to replace my clutch before I can continue testing.

Before CAI:

You should really wrap the headers in something that will repel liquids, such as aluminum tape. A leak at that oil filter could spray the header with oil, which will soak into the wrap and start a fire that quite literally can not be put out, and would burn the car to the ground. It's happened before, it'll happen again, and if I hadn't wrapped my header and uppipe in tape it would have already happened to me.

You mean aluminum tape over the header wrap? I don't see the filter leaking but you never know I guess.

I second removing the header wrap. Almost burned my car down due to a leak in my oil pressure sender plate. Luckily I had a gallon water jug in the car. They should make flammable wrap illegal. Sorry for ranting on your sweet thread

Looks like the heat wrap breaking in to me...looks like it's coming from the header and uppipe. Probably smells like baking bread too. It'll stop after a few miles.

I got a bunch of weird looks the first time I went driving after wrapping my header/uppipe. Sitting at a stoplight with smoke billowing out of my hoodscoop...no cars would pull up next to me.

Yeah you got it. I wish I had a better picture because at one point it really looked like it was on fire. It's actually the header and wrapped turbo. I have the stock uppipe. It smells terrible though, not like baking bread.

Last time I broke in exhaust wrap on my DP's, it smelled exactly nothing like baking bread.

Was during the middle of winter too, so I still got the occasional whiff for a couple weeks afterwards.

At what RPM should you be hitting full boost? on your setup vs stock?
Mine stock doesn't make full boost till 3k.

Oh, yeah, broken in two sets of heat wrap, both smelled terrible. And I was under the impression that heat wrap was flame proof but I checked mine out and even if you spray it with the sealer it is not flame proof. Time to grab that aluminum tape and go eggroll on it.
