What color are you thinking about going with? If you can choose a color, I have a charcoal grey truck, and nothing goes with that color.

I don't think the ceramic coating would be worth the cost. The gains would be minimal I would think.

Nope. Ceramic coating would, if anything, create losses due to the fact that there is SOME heat leaving the IC pipes.
