but dosent that reflect anything outside and protect whats inside? Shouldn't the tape be reversed to reflect the heat back in?

How does it work? Still hot to the touch? I was thinking going the headder paint and exhaust wrap route.. cheap and easy. Covered by the heat plate thingy will not look so bad.

The tape is self adhesive (pretty strong). I am sure it's going to get hot, but not burning hot like the header. I'll mount it on tomorrow, and let you guys know if its worth the effort.

Sounds great...

Mine gets hot even when not touching.. Something that covers the entire area would be great, ,although it may overheat the engine.. Hmmm..

I am thinking about fabing a small piece of sheet metal bent inwards top and bottom and covering with the reflective tape.

This may overheat the engine a bit, so maybe a small Comp fan would be needed.. But then they cannot get wet.

Think this will overheat if a "guard" is placed top to bottom?

Its not that big of a problem to run a complete cover, The stock exhaust shield is suitable. Ceramic coating or exhaust wrap would be the most you would ever need if you wanted more than the shield. If you were to place a large shield/guard I don't think it would cause any issues since the motor is liquid cooled and open on all other sides
