I was actually going to ask how you guys feel about that (the welder and you MJ)

I'm very obsessed with heat containment and shielding, I would love to wrap the O2 housing, unless this is not recommended for some reason. (cracking, long term structural integrity)

I asked the welder what are his thoughts on heat treating to keep the heat IN the pipe and told him before I found a set of heat shields for my setup, my friend had the exhaust manifold, turbo & O2 housing all wrapped in exhaust wrap. It actually made a significant difference. I still have the exhaust manifold & turbo under the OEM heat shields, but the O2 housing is exposed & it gets hot quick! I don't plan on wrapping it though. It looks too cool :)

The welder says, "As far as the heat goes, my guess would be a jet hot ceramic coating. It's used on pretty much anything high performance or race involved.

The cheaper alternative would be header wrap as your friend did."

Yeah it DOES look way too cool to wrap..but ugh I've been wrapping ever since my N/A header and just loved the difference it makes.

Just checking, in how goes the progress? I remember last time one was almost ready.
On Friday, April 26th, he had one done and the other about 75% done. I talked to him today & he hasn't been able to get any more done on the 2nd one yet.

Leev & DarkMx-6, Marshall just let me know today he is still waiting for the rest of the payment. He contacted you to let you know they were ready to ship, but hasn't heard back yet.

Lol, sorry. $175 shipped to lower 48 states :) International sale ends up being $220-$225. Will have to work that out with the welder.

He told me you contacted him. I'll remind him to contact you back then, but I'm pretty sure it'll be close to what I just estimated.

Has any one done any back to back testing yet? Dyno sheets? I will see if I can come up with a before and after but was just seeing if any one else had yet.

He's still waiting for the rest of your payment. He said he contacted you to let you know they were ready to ship earlier this month, but hasn't heard back from you.
