    i dont fully understand it either but its to do will creating a vacum not back pressure to help suck the exhaust gasses out, thats why on my E46 328 im only using twin 2" pipes not 2 1/4" or 2 1/2" like powerflow or a few other that im not going to mention, there is a better website which i will have to sort out for you....

    Ceramic coating is better. Wrap if not done properly can cause problems with dampness underneath which isn't good for your zorst.

    Oh and there's also the problem of moving the heat further down the zorst to the unwrapped part :-)

    you'd be better off with a ceramic coating - Zircotec or the like do this:
