something came up into my mind few days ago and was wondering about it.

on daily driving street car header wrap is a bad idea because once it cools down and it'll absorb moisture and rotting the piping away right?

what if, wrap some aluminium foil(maybe 2 or 3 layer) on the pipe then put on the header wrap on top of the aluminium foil to keep out the moisture on direct contact on the piping. will this work?

You couldn't use regular aluminum foil, you'd have to use a specific high temp foil, $$$. At that point, your money would be better spent on Jet hot.

well, that make sense too.

is it the regular foil will become brittle after many heat cycle and it'll broken into piece? thus rendering this idea worthless?

i've done some testing with the alumonium foil.

when put under direct fire for 3 minutes it's become brittle but unless you bend it it'll stay at the same shape.

so let's say if wrap couple layers and the worst is the first layer that'll become brittle. the second and so on will stay the same strength because at each layer the heat will be less and less.

when wrap around and tight it good it'll just stay that shape and never see any movement i might not see anything wrong with it.

comment?

Uhhhh...why do you think that the foil will make some sort of inpenetratable layer? It will do the EXACT same thing as the wrap. The rapid change of driving it as a daily driver will make the same stuff rot in the same place.
