    Bout time to get headers for my up and comin 496, Ive had a set of Thorleys on my 350 with the nickel chrome finish, but see on their site they now list a ceramic coating and it is cheaper on summit, but they dont talk about the ceramic anywhere else on their site, just the nickel finish. Does anyone have the ceramic finish? Pics? Like it? The nickel chrome looked really good till the 2nd time in the mud when i said screw it im not cleanin em again. Just wondering about the ceramic. Ive seen other header companies ceramic coating and I like it but Im not sure on Thorleys. Thanks. K20.

    i know a guy that has jet hot ceramic coating on a set of headers and there rusting through for the 2nd time. I'm getting ready to send a set of exhaust manifolds in to get ceramic coated but in hi-temp black instead of the shiney finish. t is supposed to work well at keeping the internal engine heat down which is part of the reason im doing it. im sending my stuff to this place.
