Exhaust Wrap

So, I've been analyzing the intake/exhaust setup to look for more of the horsepowers. While I do have a some concepts already, I began to wonder about wrap. Heated exhaust flows at a higher velocity and produces a greater scavenging effect and would theoretically open up a fractional amount of power.

Understand that I am not looking for a massive increase. Simply some discussion on the theory by people who may have a bit more experience with it. I figure that when I do my exhaust, it would be relatively easy to wrap near pre-final install. Most of my route to work is smooth flowing, though I may cook a bit on the way home.

Pro's - A couple of ponies? Something cool to make your friend lay on the ground to look at?

Con's - High cost, minimal gain, frustrating to work with, high cabin temps


Edit: Assume a cost of $200 for a 6"x100' roll.
