    Sorry if this is a silly question, but what is the reason for the silver tape?

    not tested yet, only just put on. i am awaiting a digital temp sensor to come in the post. I have one already. One will be plumbed into the intake bend and the other on the outside of the heat shield so i can see the difference.

    to reflect the heat, at least some of it.
