it's all good breh. Gauges are basically my least favorite install task on this car. It's no mistake that I'm not running any.

It's so cramped back there, why wouldn't you? That stuff is cheap and it works. I wouldn't risk melting **** back there to save a few bucks

Well ceramic heat coatings are not cheap. The wrap is. I've heard the wrap can cause moisture to be held against the manifold and cause it to rust over time. Is that true?

Spray high temp coating on it, wrap it and then spray high temp silicone coating over top of it. I've heard that works and keeps moisture out.

Not so much rust, but corrosion and pitting is what occurs when water is trapped from heat wrap

When you do this do you let the first coat dry before wrapping it?

I sprayed the coats on according to the can let it sit over night, baked it in the oven according to the instructions then after it cooled I soaked heat wrap and wrapped it up. I'm waiting till I have free time to spray the silicone spray on it. Not sure if this is the "correct" way but its what the instructions said.

Probably, but I wouldn't wrap bare metal with that stuff in the first place

Would things turn out wrong if you wrapped it wet then baked it with the wrap on? Just a theory

I'm not sure why you would do that. It needs to dry to work

I'm not sure my downpipe will fit in my oven. I can do that for the manifold though.
