ceramic coating will help with rust and wrap wont.. so i would suggest painting it first if you use wrap especially if it is mild steel or cast.

i use both ceramic and wrap. i ceramic coated the turbo and wrapped the exhaust.

Painting first wont help long... the excessive heat will cook the paint right off.

I've never seen a good header rust from wrapping.... now if you use a cheap ebay header thats a different story.

I have downpipes that I know were wrapped for a couple of years and they have zero rust.
