I wasn't trying to be. I think it works well. I should do some testing, but it seems to.

Thats cool, I think it is the same stuff I was looking at, except mine was a yellow/peach color on one side, then like a aluminum foil material on the other.

I found it, it was in the plumbing section. I put it on the car and I think it pulls better when its warmed up. It looks really ghetto but I will have pics once my sister gets back from New Orleans with our digicam.

Mine feels alot cooler too, has anyone tried using this type of stuff on the exhaust crossover pipe? I dont know if it will hold up to the heat or not. I would like to wrap mine to keep the heat off the TB.

Oh ok, then the heat gets into the TB, right? Since heat rises that could be a good mod to do.
