Absolutely beautiful !

Would you explain why cooling the exhaust would help performance.
I always thought keeping the exhaust as hot as possible in the exhaust pipe would keep the velosity up and therefore help the spent gases hurry out the pipe. (like having ceramic coated headers)
Am I wrong there?
I know keeping the Heads cool is very important, and maybe by cooling the pipe right at the head would help that.

Would cooling the head to pipe area be more helpful than keeping the exhaust gas hot out to the end of the pipe?

What do you say?

I'm a certified car nut and I'm always looking for ways to make my vehicle more efficient and safe.. which is why I love your car so much.
