its more effecient for race bikes that replace parts all the time, and your looking for 100% performance.

for the real world, it inhibits rust, and makes the headers rust sooner.

You also do NOT want to wrap Ti headers, they will overheat.
Typically we only wrap headers on v-twins or v-fours where the pipes run close to the shock. Mainly to keep heat off the shock.
