Pardon me for the following comment.....but that header wrapping is unnecessarily spoiling a fabulous looking engine.

I would match port the headers [and the inlet manifold]  and have them ceramic coated. The coating will in itself minimise the heat transfer.

Do you intend running a complete twin exhaust system or fit a collector at the termination of the headers and then a suitable sized single SS system.

We had a well respected racer on here who took the time and money to do back to back tests of heat treatment inc ceramic and iirc the ceramic was looks over heat reduction performance. 
 

wrapping was certainly more cost effective if a little untidy looking.

As for me.. well I happen to like the exhaust wrap. When mostly tucked away under the carbs it's not at all offensive to my eyes.  Indeed I used it on my last classic to help keep the radiant heat from its inboard brakes, and again on the down-pipes of a previously owned 3.8 Jag whose radiant massive twin exhaust pipes kept its dynamo and PAS pump rather warmer than I liked.  Consequently I plan to do the same with my TR's exhaust.  

That's just my opinion like.  :ph34r:  ..and as you can see  ..I even wear the stuff to keep my headers warm !  B)

Malbaby  we have a single pipe then a Y pipe onto two back boxes all ss, I quite like the warp it been on the pipes for a few years now and had no problems with it. I’ll only see it when the bonnet is up in the garage for service checks and a polish.
