    ONLY IF YOU LIKE THE SMELL OF BURNING PLASTIC.

    Sure and as you run it, it will start on fire. Make you extra toasty!  I HOPE!

    Carbon Fiber does NOT burn unless at 1600 Fahrenheit. I Tried it, and some Graphite.

     

    If you use the resin-impregnated stuff, not just the C fiber braid, that resin will burn, stink,  smoke. A  . Mess.

    Nope, you have to use header wrap or specially designed wraps that are primarily made from fiberglass and graphite. Things that have no resin or anything that might burn at high temperatures.

    NOT NECESSARY! Modern cars usually have STAINLESS STEEL exhausts! You CAN help by installing DENSO TWIN TIP IRIDIUM LASER apspark plugs and usign only the BEST synthetic oils, like PENNZOIL PLATINUM that extends warranty to 500,000 miels! GOOD LUCK!

    It's possible yes, but whether it's a good idea or not is an entirely different question...

    Carbon Fiber is similar to fiberglass, as it uses a resin to bind the rather delicate carbon filaments together. It is unlikely that it will hold up to the high temperatures of an exhaust system.

    • BS. Fiberglas IS  Glas Fiber ( silicon Doxidee, NOT in any way "similar") Carbon fiber Wrap may or May Not be resin impregnated. I have seen C fiber and fiberglas exhaust wrap Specific; no resin. Resin burns  Off in a few, anyway.

    I CAN, aka I am capable of doing so.

    That is ENTIRELY different from claiming is it a good idea.

    No, the heat would melt it. 

    • BS. Carbon Burns  at 752  F, does Not :  "melt" Exhaust might be 400 at exhaust valve; 250f an inch down. I know, I checked an Air Cooled motorcycle. Waters cooled cars run cooler.
