    Header Question

    The LT1 I bought has hooker headers on it. They are in good shape.. the only problem is they are a little rusty. Would it be worth sandblasting them and having them ceramic coated?? Or should i just sandblast them and put a couple of coats of heat resistant paint on them?

    That all depends on what you want and how much you want to pay. The rattle can job may look descent but it won't hold the heat in like a ceramic coating will.

    If your willing to take them out, and have time to allow the car to sit for a while, have them Jet-Hot Coated. My MAC's are done in Jet-Hot Coating and you can't beat it. Thats my suggestion to you.

    Taking them out is not a problem because the motor is on a stand right now... How much does Jet-Hot coating cost?? I know I need to do somthing with them because I dont want to take them out after I install the motor... Just depends on prices I guess...

    I've heard of costs around the $200 range for a Jet-Hot coating.
