    ceramic or stainless headers

    Which type of header is better to go with. I've heard that ceramic coated are better for keeping heat down but they will eventually rust right? Stainless steel looks the best and doesnt rust but i've heard that they discolor over time. Ceramic is less expensive, but is there any other advantage that either of them have?

    Ceramic will reduce heat in the engine bay if that is a problem...I have plenty of air flow in the GTTO so I went Stainless.....sure the stainless turns blue/purple...so what
    I have ceramic headers on the Dodge R/T for over a year and no rust....
