This is interesting! I have been working along the same line with the urq -
what to do with the heat problem. I am considering louvers in the "bonnet",
also. What are you thinking of using for insulation? I have been looking at a
flexible ceramic fabric with aluminum foil on both sides that is about 5mm
thick. Stuff is expensive, however. Going beyond the manifold and down pipe,
I have seen a car with the turbo cold side coated and another with the hot
side coated. Thinking here seems to be in a state of confusion. What is the
best path for the heat in the exhaust system? What is the best way to get it
or keep it going in the right direction? Some more McMath is needed here.
