I agree, if this stuff was laying next to the headers. But when applied inside under the carpet, is it going to reflect that head away? After reading (a lot of) the lizard skin link, it appears that if the stuff is marketed directly at car guys, the price is marked up. I'm just wondering if anyone tried the stuff.

Looks like what we need is a test. Say 12 x 12 panels covered with the various material. Take a heat gun to the backside for a couple of minutes then measure the radiated heat.

Sorry, I thought you wanted to wrap the pipes, not put it on the floor. My brain was not engaged when I posted that answer.

There already have been tests like that done, and not by a company with an axe to grind, by an end user. I will look and see if I can find it for you.

Here it is, I found it: Sound Deadener Showdown

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

A lot of what works or does not work also depends on the end users desires and expectations as well..Some guys can be happy with a few pieces of peel and seal and the next guy wants and desires a "limo rod" that rides like a limousine with all the attendant "comfort features.

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Sound Deadener Showdown - Your Source for Sound Deadening Products and Information

His products are of very good quality and were the lowest price that I could find. In addition, his technical support was top notch. Even called him personally while performing the installation in my garage for his support/direction on my project. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Took something that I was dreading to do and made it enjoyable and a huge learning experience.

Take a look at a thread I made discussing my project:
