You might want to rethink wrapping it. Heat causes warpage, and it will also rust out faster. I never wrapped mine, and I've had it for close to 10 years now. It doesn't really make much difference in power, unless you upgrade your WHOLE exhaust system and air intake system. The Pacesetters need a lot of reworking to reach their full potential.

you have to insulate/paint the inside surfaces which are exposed to the source of heat to keep the metal piping walls from possibly overheating and sagging. Only painting the outside will keep the heat in (good for airflo) which may cause the piping wlls to overheat. Paint is prolly not a good thermal barrier so painting any surface will prolly not change things much from not painting at all but if you can do the insides it might be worth a try. a tc temp monitor on the outside wall at the junction of the 6 tubes collector) where it will be the hottest is a good idea.
