You want to keep the heat in the pipes, cooling them down will sacrifice engine will lower the power band. Wrap them or have the ceramic coated, if they're anywhere near plasitc they're gonna melt stuff. This is why the stock pipes come with a heat shield...accomplishes both things, keeps heat in, and away from plastic parts

You can use heat reflective tape on the underside of the hood and other places in the engine compartment. It won't cure the heat, but it will help some with the melting.

You could check into getting the exhaust system ceramic coated-have heard this helps engine performance(more stable temps) and cuts down the external temps a lot. Might be worth checking into-looks alot better than wrapped pipes too.

Go to your local High proformance Auto Parts store and get some header wrap and wrap the pipes. This is the cheapest solution. Ceramic coating is not cheap but is the best answer. Yes you do want to keep the heat in the pipes that is the whole reason for proformance exhaust heat and correct back presure and flow. Just wrap them. Then get some of the heat sheilding that comes on the inside of all the newer sleds hoods it is like a decal that is a metal finish place this on the inside of the hood where the pipes are close to the hood. Your dealer can get this for you.
