    I wrapped mine to protect my CV axle boot and keep my underhood temperature down. Even then, I only wrapped it about halfway down. There really is no reason to wrap it past the point it is out of the engine bay. Remember, the stock DP came heat shielding - on a car that had presumably less power than a car tuned for a DP - and thus emitted less heat. Like I said, without the wrap you can cook your CV boots pretty quick - next thing you know you'll have grease all over your DP... hot grease = lots of nasty smelling smoke.

    Im going to ceramic coat mine. I should have done it before I installed it but I didnt. Ill have to take it off and do it soon though. Too bad youre not closer or I would have done yours too. Im pretty cheap.

    If anything I would ceramic coat it. Wrapping the pipe can cause premature failure of the tubing over time.

    On the older wrx's, the down pipe ran closer to the firewall and that rubber piece coming out of it.

    On my 14, there is plenty of room all around it, plus I'm running the Cobb heat shield. I'm not concerned.
