Well for Christmas I got a thing of Titanium header wrap for my XX. I have the Barkers exhaust but the heat shield fell off like 3 wks after I installed. I have to say...it actually looks good and works awesome. Im glad I got some cause I have a nasty scar and my leg from the pipe lol. If any of you guys/gals have a problem with the excessive heat I highly recommend header wrap. I think it was from Advance Auto Parts.
