Ceramic Header Coatings


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have experience with ceramic coating headers? I searched and found one thread that was favorable, but I wanted to throw the question out again to see what kind of feedback I got.

For those that have used ceramic coatings, where you happy with it, did you have any problems with it, etc? Also, is anyone aware of an alternative to ceramic coatings?

I used JetHot on my Alfa headers and have been really happy with it. It has held up for over a year now and still looks like the day I installed them. The car is not my daily driver though. Also have used a local powder coater that ceramic coats on another set - while they have held up, the shine went away slightly - still worth the cost savings. Check around for a powder coater in your area that might do it.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
