Wrapped my shotgun pipes with DEI off amazon. worked well.

Ran into a guy on a trip through Nevada who said that eventually the wrap will crystallize the metal pipes and cause them to crack....

Makes a little sense to me with rapid heating and cooling cycles to cause stress cracks in the pipes, however I think it would take a very long life of cycles to cause issues.

So, now the big question. Is it possible to wrap the headers on XCT without removing the pipes? Looks like a lot of close clearances... Not feeling ambitious enough to unbolt a bunch of stuff...
