Bryan,

Here's my 2ยข...

I used Jet Hot for mine this past Fall...they are the big name out there...some said would cost more, but not what I found.

Biggest benefit I see with Jet Hot besides the actual product is they have a LIFETIME WARRANTY. I would just ask what your local shop offers in warranty.

I am really pleased with how they turned out.

In reply to # 1512725 by Doug in Vegas A tea tray cures all.


I gotta tell ya, Doug, .... That's one of the most creative (if not the most beautiful - lol) heat shield solutions I've ever seen. Friggin' brilliant! Friggin' hysterical. spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

Sure, fill it up with dry bread stuffing, and then crimp the foil cover on.
Eco-Green organic oil filter, instead of K&N filter oil, just have to moisten the stuffing with gravy every 5,000 miles or so.

That serving tray probably works pretty well, sure would be ironic and have a joke or two in there if it was a Paul Revere silver tray smiling smiley. With the intake and exhaust being so close by design I'm surprised the factory didn't design one.

I've looked into the different wraps/blankets and could probably wrap two or more headers for the price of ceramic coating but I'm not sure my work would hold up the same as what's shown in the photos. Cost is a factor and that's one reason I'm looking for a local company instead of shipping it out. I live on the north side of Houston so I'm sure there's a few to choose from in the area.

I think it was Markus who posted a great video about headers and coatings and while I don't expect to get much more HP from coated/wrapped vs unprotected I do want the lower temps. When I first bought the car the original fiber transmission tunnel was damaged and the heat coming in by my feet almost melted the soles off my shoes.

HAHA Thanks Carter. I do like option two with the heat shield keeping the gravy jet tubes and throttle body protected from the heat. In addition to all this I have planes to fabricate new radiator deflection boards along both sides. Mine are long gone.
Next thing ya know I'll be riding the gravy train with the biscuit wheels. smiling smiley

Where in the world did you find that damn thing Doug? It was too funny. I don't remember seeing that episode either.

Had mine done a few months ago by Jet-Hot. They do both inside and out as their standard process. The rep told me they do so to improve gas flow. As mentioned, it comes with a lifetime warranty to the original owner. They were quick, and maintained good communication. The finish is bright and chrome-like. You ought to get a great finish on a new product. I sent in an old, rusty euro exhaust manifold, which came back looking better than than when it went in. If I do this again I will spend more time up front preparing the piece before sending it off.

I plan to use a Euro manifold along with a custom 2-1 secondary section of welded steel tubes and flanges for my turbo exhaust manifold.
I plan to have both pieces blasted to clean up and then Jet-Hot coated.

Why don't you just order the Headers from Good Part pre-coated with the ceramic inside and out?

I ordered the 6-3-2, but they have 6-3-1.

Hi Mike,

WTH is a 6-3-2? Did you mean a 6-2-1?
