    Allegedly....However I do not know too much about it but I have heard its not too good an idea.What is it you are trying to achieve?I would think getting better headers would be a better idea than wrapping it

    Wrapping is good IF you want to keep engine bay temperatures down. I don't think that you are going to get any significant performance increase on a BMW unless you have a turbo or a V8 etc. As StK said, you would be better of getting a good set of headers (and then wrap them lol ).

    Wrapping will increase the header temperatures so if the headers are not designed to handle the extra heat they might crack. Remember, any increase in temperatures around this area will also find it's way onto the engine block.
