whose running ceramic coated headers? How do you like them vs chrome? I am looking into getting mine done in the chrome-like (alluminum mixed in) ceramic, and was wondering how they will hold up to the water injection, and if the ceramic cracks if you drop something on it like a wrench. Thanks guys

mine held up very well but a set or rewarders we put on a friends boat(pb member "jetboat") his turned ugly at the spot he had the mufflers in, the ceramic dulled quite a bit there. if you've gotta run muffler, i'd go chrome but that's me.

Hit up Tiki here on the board. Embee coatings in So Cal is where he is from and he has a great coating. I have it on mine and I wouldn't go to anyone else. Seen too many coatings go south on other boats and mine have lasted great. Dry or wet! He has a great price too!!!

Embee did mine, no problems whatsoever. They've been run dry ever since being coated with lots of heat from warmups, N20, and plenty of HP. Still look great.

I have had a couple sets of ceramic coated ones and have always run them dry and they still look nice!!! Alot cooler running, cool down quicker and less burns off of them ;)

Embee has done a few sets for me and I cannot say enough about the quality, durability, customer service, and the turn around, Did I say that they are the most reasonably priced too?

My headers are coated and I also run dry with no complaints. Cools off fast compared to Chrome.

No personal experiance with Jeff at Embee but I've heard nothing but the very best and he's a good guy.......john

My rewards did the same thing out of the box, their coating is SHIT, my three other pairs have had no problems and look great!

I Bought A Pair Of Headers Ceramic Coated From Embee. They Look Great With Over A Season On Them. My Last Pair Was Done By Another Well Known Shop And Went To Sh*t Real Fast. Started Pitting At First Fire Up. Go With Embee.
