If you are really gonna use that setup then you might as well buy mine since your worried about cracking. That way you wouldn't have spent as much money.

I have the exact same set sitting in my closet for the past year. Never used them but i'll sell them to you for 50 bucks plus shipping if you want.

Don't wrap it, you'll only make the manifold hotter by containing the heat under the wrap, making it more susceptible to cracking, same with downpipe.
