Technical question about exhaust wraps
I've been going back and forth about exhaust wrap in my head for a long time now - the pro's, the con's, etc. Is the look worth the potential damage to the pipes? Will I still burn the pinata out of my leg? Should I put $50 into wrap when I can put $25 into sanding and painting?
All my questions did bring up something I could not find a solid answer to though - I know that wrap will increase the heat inside the pipe, and therefore increase the scavenging effect and speed up the exhaust flow. Will this inevitably lead to a lean situation? In theory, since I'd be "increasing" the effectiveness of the exhaust, it should lean out the mixture right?
Honestly at this point I'm a bigger fan of EFI, but if I can ever nail this carb thing I might be more amicable to them.
