Should you heat wrap your downpipe?
Should You Heat Wrap Your Downpipe? If you have aftermarket downpipes, you should definitely use a heat wrap. Aftermarket downpipes make exhaust gases flow much easier and spool the turbo even harder – creating more energy for the turbo to suck more air and deliver it to the combustion chamber.
Is it worth ceramic coating downpipe?
If you are not a very aggressive driver, then you do not necessarily need a ceramic coating. However, if you like to track the car or just drive aggressively, then the ceramic coating will help with the longevity of your downpipes. All in all, it is a smart idea.

Does downpipe increase horsepower?
Conclusion. Upgraded downpipes provide great increases in horsepower and torque on turbocharged vehicles by allowing exhaust gasses to flow easier as they leave the turbo. Paired with the appropriate software, a downpipe can provide significant gains and make a vehicle more fun and engaging to drive.
Are bigger downpipes better?
The bigger the pressure differential, the better it works. This is why a bigger engine (which increases pre-turbine pressure by creating more exhaust gas) helps spool. And most importantly, this is why a big downpipe (which reduces post turbine pressure by improving flow) helps spool.
