I was wondering if i would be safe to thermal wrap the high flow cat on the vibrant header. I was also wondering if it will have negative effects on the cat over time if i did.

^hmm that's a good question. Would concentrating heat in the catylist ruin it..? I would think it would be OK but I dunno for sure..

Bump.

You only wrap your header to keep temps down under the hood. You want the cat to cool effectively to radiate heat as much as possible. It's designed to work at a certain temp and wrapping it would raise the temps really high. Also, wouldnt the EGT be really high and throw a CEL?
