to wrap or not to wrap

just received my supersprint headers for the M111 engine and trying to decide if I should titanium wrap it or not. my main concern is the SC (and intake temps) which is probably to be effected by the heat radiation from the 1st cylinder's pipe. on the other hand wraping is known for killing the header. so should I save the headers or SC? both are brand new anyone one with similar experience?

Nice looking Bananas

Ceramic Coating is the best option ..................

I have used it extensively, on Turbo's where you can actually see a slight power increase on dyno due to the thermal efficiency

HTH, Cheers Dave
