What is the general consensus of Rotax 912 ULS operators about wrapping the exhaust pipes with

"automotive exhaust manifold tape" to reduce the under cowl temps... looking for ways to get rid of heat to reduce my oil temp slightly on high ambient OAT days.

What did you see or experience

What product and from which source did you use

Any other caveats

Still grinnin

i use if for two reasons , firstly it helps keep my cowling temperature down after a flight to prevent vapor lock and secondly to protect the lower cowling itself from damage .. it works very well
