Your question is too vague. Define "works best"..
Killing flies?
Looking Pretty?
Cooking oatmeal?
Mowing the yard?
?

Please understand, you're not telling us what you want it to do so we cannot help you make a choice.

If you can't explain to us what you want it to do then leave it as-is..

The general rule of thumb is that the closer the part is to the engine, the more important it is to wrap or coat. Therefore, headers being the most important, overpipe/frontpipe being second, and the rest last. My recommendation is to only coat the headers and the overpipe.

Wrapping or coating the frontpipe + midpipe can actually result to decrease in performance. The reason you want to coat the headers + overpipe is because the hotter the exhaust gets, the faster it expands, and exerts this force into the turbines of your turbo making it an effective system. After it passes the turbine, you want it to cool down as fast as possible.

By coating or wrapping your front/mid pipes, you are essentially adding more pressure where it has no benefits leading to unnecessary wear to your exhaust parts.

just to clarify something. The wrap does not create heat, it only insulates. so wrapping a pipe will not make the pipe hotter, it will hold the heat in longer vs. unwrapped pipe lengthening the cool down process. And if you wrap unprotected thin mild steel it will rust, just like if you didn't wrap unprotected steel pipes. (ever see an old set of cheap headers? rusted to pieces) I've had wrap on my turbo kit for about 2 years, i sprayed the high temp paint on first and have no issues. The wrap is cheaper and will hold in radiant heat much better than coating, but does not protect the raw steel like coating does.

This is what we needed to know. Your first post was similar to asking what tree is best..best for what? Building a boat, making a bat, shading a yard, lasting through drought, etc..

Anyway, a wrap will keep underhood temps down more than ceramic coating.
