Or you could even buy the Ceramic spray paint and do it all yourselves for a fraction of the cost, you could do your whole exhaust for less then getting someone else to do it, and it is 90% as good from what i have read

I have yet to see a spray paint coating (i've fiddled w/ a few...)that holds up as well as the professionally done coatings.. I'd also be surprised if they worked as well:-/

I tried on a piston engine, and my rotary. It's not even close to ceramic coatings . . .

IMHO, much more durable than Jet-Hot.

What are we talking in cost for these processes. I used header wrap for my down pipes. I couldn't believe that between the wrap and high heat paint that you put on top, It was $150.00.

Less then 250 for Swain Tech to coat a set of 560 Tri Y's.
