I'm curious, do you have another SSEi nearby that has the stock housing? I was thinking you could get both up to normal running temp, then shut them down side-by-side. Then, using a thermometer of sorts, measure the top temp of both, then the cool-down, kinda like willwren did.

Personally, I don't think you'll see much difference, but it would be nice to have the numbers handy for the forum.

im not really concerned about that since the spark plug wires actually completely cover this area of the SC.. if it looks good enough i might re-route them under the nose

Ya, we use tape like that to test coating adhesion.
If it rips off a chunk you know it wasn't bonded well.

Not trying to scare you but forewarned is forearmed.
Just be very careful removing it.
