Default which exhaust wrap for test pipe and catback?

skunk2 is loud but sounds very nice, so im keeping it for now.
i already sprayed and baked with high temp ceramic paint and then wrinkle and baked ( about 3 months ago, its still holding up great none of it burned off so far)
it also decreaced the high pitch noise noticeably
i did some research and saw that evo guys use exhaust wrap all the way to the muffler and having good results. but they were a bit unclear about what exhaust wrap they use. few different names were thrown around without any confirmation
so i was wondering maybe someone with S2k did that as well and what exhaust wrap ws used or recommended( with high temp silicone spray obviously to keep it water resistant.

im also gonna try the exhaust vibration damper that domestic guys use. its a piece of rubber attached to the pipe at specific spot to kill the drone( which seems to also work great for mustans, and they need it too...)

You want to make your skank2 exhaust less deafening by using exhaust wrap?
There's not much difference on different wraps and there is going to be even less impact on the exhaust sound so just get something cheap.
I'm using DEI titanium wrap on my test pipe, mostly because I had some left after doing my header.
It seems to hold up pretty well without any extra spray on top.

Thermo-Tec is what I've used on my header (twice now) and on my Berk header back.

Not to thread jack and since I couldn't help but notice your ETD - how do you find its performance/difference it makes to the feel of the car?

"Skank2..." I'm guessing that was not a typo

you will never know lol. could be a typo. but im ok with it

spraying with hi-temp then wrinkle did reduce the ringing noticeably so im hoping the exhaust wrap along with well placed vibration dampener will reduce it to tolerable levels without having to use silencers(which i have but they make the exhaust sound weak like a single cam)
