    I ceramic coat the inside and outside of headers.
    That's why you seal it, or buy a wrap that doesn't need sealant.

    Wrap insulates against airflow, where coating doesn't.

    Again, pros/cons...

    For injectors, ID1000s
    Yep, will be wrapping them individually. It's cheaper than Ceramic coating so I'll go that route.

    Definitely going to go with a ID1000s and going to go one step colder plugs.

    As per a suggestion torque gave me a while ago... Look into using CV clamps and the little tool you use with them to help hold the wrap on. They work much better than the traditional "stainless steel" zips.

    Good luck. My Invidia EL were welded in between the runners at a few points so I had to wrap them together. The wrapping was the worst part of the install.... Along with slicing my finger open on a heat shield (through the nail). Wear gloves when breaking bolts loose down there.

    You running the stock wastegate?

    Cool. Just make sure it'll fit with your down pipe.

    I bet you can find some used ones. I'd aim for a 1bar/14psi spring combo. Since I got mine new, it came with all of the various springs. You combine whatever springs you need to get your preload. I'd just touch base with your tuner regarding it - he may have preferences.

    Yep. How hard is it to change the springs with the EWG on the car?

    I can't multiply that high.

    I would NOT recommend it. It was a pain to change them off the car to be honest. 14psi is a lot tougher than you realize, haha. I'd put it somewhere between impossible and extremely miserable, even after a six pack.

    The EWG is in a tight area. It's probably my most hated place to work on as well. Fighting with the v-bands on my 44mm is not fun at all.
