Re: Ceramic coated headers and engine break in...
After 4 years my ceramic coated Hookers have lost a little bit of their luster especially on where the tubes curve coming out of the head due to heat. I actually use chrome polish to bring them out to shine, but they'll lose luster eventually again.
A local Chevy heavy who's been around for 40 years hot rodding says it's better to buy the painted headers, run them for a few months then pull them and have them ceramic coated. He's saying the metal will have been heat treated and cured by that time and provides a better ceramic coat, I'm not sure it what he's saying is entirely making sense!
