Header wrap on one section of header

I don't like the look of header wrap, but I wan't to keep the heat away from the starter. Is it ok to use the wrap on the portion of the header that is close to the starter. Any issues you think this would cause by not wraping the whole header??

Why not get one of those starter shield plates or heat wrap for the starter instead? Much better than wrapping a pipe. Or better yet, get a hemi and you won't have that problem!
