I like that exhaust wrap and have used it on several cars. Get the 1" width, it works well on the u-bend. Get 50' of it and some metal hose clamps to secure the start and end of the wrap.

If you want to keep the heat in then wrap it.
Extra heat will not make it last any longer though.

One could also get it ceramic coated?
