Hey, again. 2003, 1.8T. Wondering if anyone happens to know roughly the temp at the flex section of the exhaust? Does it stay consistent over, say, an hour’s drive, or continue to climb? Mostly wondering if it would be safe to use an 850F wrap temporarily until I can get that whole section replaced. Thanks in advance.

About an average of 700F ~ 750F on the exhaust pipes.
Average 850F ~ 875F inside the catalytic converter.

Should be fine if you don't get into the turbo too much. If you get the turbo cherry red, expect EGT of 950 or so and it will transit downstream.
