Re: ceramic coat
I had Jet Hot coat my bellowed up-pipes and downpipe. It cost $195.00 shipped to have the the pipes done in "extreme sterling". I believe this coating may only be good to 1300, which for me is plenty. You could go with the 2000, but that coating was only available in matte colors. I wanted a polished finish. I would recommend a color other than black on the up-pipes. This way you can see if there is any exhaust leak. If I ever need new manifolds, I will likely have them coated. With Jet-hot, you measure the length of pipe and they will give you a good estimate. I remember being very pleased.
