I have a 99' Rs. I havn't had a problem with anything. No check engine light. There is no need to wrap it. But I thik the 00-01's may have check engine light problems, so I'm not sure.

I've heard that if you get a CE light, if you wrap the header it may get rid of the light. Try it out...I say

since your vehicle is a 2000 or newer....you will need to wrap the header only if you want the light to go away. The wrap will also quiet down the header a little bit as well.(which is a bad thing )
