I've heard about the graphite powder - just wondered if things had moved on a bit, tech.-wise... Yes and no...

Collective Head Scratch - Exhaust Wrap ?

I have SS tubulars that have been wrapped which I'll be fitting in the next few months, I remember some point in the last decade it was a common sight to see engine bays with wrapped manifolds.
