Yes, this is a good choice if the proper wrap material is applied and secured.
The quality of many exhaust wraps are not very good. Exhaust wraps can also degrade over time (fray or flake off due dry rot over a long time period)
It all depends on the quality of the cloth, and the way it's secured to the exhaust pipes. An exhaust wrap in the area where he wants, will alternate between wet and dry and hot and cold constantly.
It's cheap, so maybe he'll try it?
I still think the durable high-temp jet coating is his best long term solution.
