I have to fix my up pipes do to leakage of course but before I re-install them I am wondering if anyone here has wrapped their up pipes? If so has it been good or bad?

I just finished doing mine yesterday. It can't hurt anything and it should keep heat away from the firewall. Have you considered doing the bellowed up pipes? Most of the leaks occur at the donut interface to the collector and with the bellowed up pipes, you eliminate that. Nick did a great write up about this - you can read it here - https://www.thedieselstop.com/threads/up-pipe-wrap-question.444545/#post-3181209

I also went with the International bellowed uppipes. Perfect fit and very well made, according to my mechanic. Not cheap, but worth every penny getting rid possibility of future donut leaks.

FYI, if I had it to do over, although being stainless steel, I believe I would have had my International uppipes ceramic coated. That would have also helped with the heat. But hindsight is 20/20.
