I read this once, maybe others can chime in on it's accuracy :

exhaust wrap - interesting results

Be aware that wrapped pipes usualy fail at a much faster rate than unwrapped pipes.
People that turbo v8s or old volkswagen beetles sometiems wrap the long pipes (going from one side of the engine to another) to keep the gasses hot and fast inside the tube.
It works - but within a few thousand k's the pipes have cracked and need replacement.
