Only downside I know of is corrosion with mild steel headers not ceramic coated.

i wrap all of my headers and down pipes to retain the heat so they cool slower to keep them from cracking. also to keep the keat off of other things. if yours has cracked 3 times then it's too thin, getting to hot for the wall thickness or if it's cracking on the welds then it wasn't welded correctly. enemy knows what that looks like all to well  ;D

I have heard that a header wrap can cause your header to crack over time, too hot I guess.  Mine shouldn't see any moisture so corrosion shouldn't be an issue.  Does anyone wrap their headers, and if so, what has been your experience?  My headers have already cracked 3 times so I'm probably due for a new set anyways.

The Early '90s Mazda MPV Is A Cool, Cheap 4WD Vanlife Vehicle We All Forgot About

Car camping is hot right now, and so are SUVs from the 1960s to the 1990s. I’m totally on board with all those things, so as far as I’m concerned, it’s a good time to be an enthusiast. But today, I was reminded that the Mazda MPV was a badass four-wheel drive SUV/van hybrid before it devolved into a Honda Odyssey…

sounds like you had some real guidence from some experts. i have never understood kings valving so i have no idea what 8,10 or 12 means in a king shock.  i am glad to hear and see that it works very good on your rail!! i have tried flutter stacks in the past and could tell no difference so i have never tried again. i have read statements and have talked to people that have installed bypass with out changine valving or springs on existing c/o shocks. they have all said it made a huge diff right out of the box with no adjustment. i have spoken with mark at marks sand trans ( fox dealer, expert etc etc) about speeding up comp and rebound on c/o and setting bypass to do most of the dampening. now this is based on the c/o being pretty much on the money already. he has said flutter stacks work well and when i say i have tried and saw no difference, i should say i have tried this on fox air shocks. they are a little different animal then c/o's. lokks like its working very well for you in the video's deranged

This spring might be a long stretch as the car isn't truly tested as of yet to make the trek down there, now next fall, IT'S ON!!!!!

Great question regarding the valving.  The simple answer is 8, 10 and 12.  8 stack in the coil over, 10 stack in the mid speed clicker on the reservoir for the coil over and a 12 stack in the bypass.  My good friend Neal who is in with King and some of the guys who do shock tuning are just amazing when it comes to shock tuning.  I worked with Neal and gave him all of my suspension info, rough corner weight pivot points, un sprung weight and maybe a piece of my liver.  All that was sent over to King and 2 months later I got a set of bypasses with recommended valving instructions.  Currently I have a 10 stack in the clicker reservoir, a 10 stack with a big flutter stack and the bypasses are 12's.  The bypass valving is set up right in the middle.  So  far just doing the mechanical testing, I am still amazed at how well the car stays planted in the whoops.

Below is a link to a video of a truck that the suspension was set up the buy that Neal knows.  There was a group of guys up here in the mitten who pooled up some money for this guy to fly out to Michigan and spread some suspension wizzardry.  I can't wait to get some action video of the suspension doing it's thing.

out of curiosity .....with the addition of the by pass shocks, did you change the valving in your coil over ( faster comp/slower rebound) to allow the bypass to do most of the work?
