Maybe that makes sense.

Yep thats about the way I understand it as well. Seen that some of the headers made with lesser metals end up corroding away when wrapped as well.

Alot of truck pullers go with the turbo blankets and hot-side coating/wrappings due to insane temps for a relatively short time.

I knew one guy that had a "mild" built pulling truck. He had a huge ice chest/toolbox that he'd fill with ice water for his air-water intercooler. It would be all melted by the time he was done with his pull...
