Default Compressor temp.

I put a stock wrx turbo on my legacy gt. I am wondering what kind of temp compressors run at. I have the exhaust side wrapped. I have wires quite close to the compressor and am wondering if I should put heat wrap around the wires that are close to the compressor or around the compressor.

Same here. My electrical harness coming from the firewall, is like an inch away from the compressor. I put some heat shielding on the section of the wires close to the compressor. However, this weekend I'm installing the Thermatec Turbo wrap on my compressor(bought from Jegs). Just to be safe.
