    I imagine the only thing to worry about is them hittin the transom and if your pretty sure they won't hit then you got some pretty cool headers for a decent price, they will be loud as chiat.

    lol, i hope they clear the transom, if not they'll be back on ebay and i'm sure i'll take a damn loss on em. seriously, the back seat passengers should like these over what i was runnin, dry shorties. they were about 8-10 inches from the bench seat. these new headers will put about 2ft in there oh and they'll look cool(if they fit)

    he said he thought i was gonna go out and start throwing the nitrous to it right away. airborn did the coating inside and out so i'm not worried.

    I've been told to run it for the first time with a big fan blowing on them for awhile. This lets the coating bake on without dulling the shiny finish. If you don't do this, the coating will turn a dull grey, but will still be perfectly fine and will still function efficiently. They just won't be as pretty. The dulling normally only occurs close to the block where the heat is highest, the rest will still be nice and shiny. Hope this helps and good luck.

    i've asked the guy more questions about the coating, he said just run em for 2hrs without nitrous and he highly doubted they 'd even turn yellow at all, none of the other sets he's had done did.


    can't coated headers be polished? thought some super fine steel wool makes em shiny?

    I just picked up my headers from being coated and he didnt tell me anything. Put them on and run em. A friend of mine just got his done and no dulling yet, but he's also running water thru them.
    They look good though, good luck

    We wash our parts in gasoline,
    We drink Alcohol,
    And we go racing with Nitro-Methane!

    Those are going to look really nice.

    I dont think I have ever seen dry coated headers that didn't have some change in the finish somewhere. From greying to dulling.

    Water would probably work even better. My only personal experience with them has been on motorcycles, and you can't really be running water through those, so he used a fan.
