If you are to do it right you need to ceramic coat the exhaust system to keep the heat in. I know this costs more but it works forever and won't destroy anything.
Pardon me for asking,but what are your qualifications?
About all i'll agree with is wrap is hard on the life expectancy of the pipe it's applied to,but to say it does the "exact opposite" of it's advertized purpose is a bit of a stretch,as you're basically saying it's pulling heat out of the exhaust,i don't agree with you there sir.
Any exhaust i can put my hand on,means more heat is still inside the pipe.
The pipe is a radiator that you've slowed heat transfer from .
You'll also notice i mentioned Ceramic coating,but lets be realistic,how many guys are in the position of having their entire exhaust system ceramic coated.
