headers

Postby gimpy60 » Tue May 31, 2011 7:47 pm

Jim says I need a new exhaust, I concur. I need input on ceramic coating. The header system is $70 more with the stuff on it, is it worth it. Dual q/p, so it will show (make the rest of the car look like chit)//???? Input will be considered with appreciation............JP

Lets run this in perspective for a second shall we...............................


1. If you decide to get it coated after when you get it here the price will be double that at least.

2. Exhaust will not rust.

3. It will run cooler on the exhaust

4. It will look way better.

5. So yeah i agree with Jim 100% on the coating idea.



P.S. Make sure you wipe your hand prints off of it with some good cleaner before starting it also, The coating will last longer

Ceramic coat is nicer. If you aint got the scratch i wouldnt loose sleep over it, you dont drive in snow, or heavy rain on purpose so it should last a while.

My beetle sounds just like the one in the video, but only because it has a big hole in the muffler.
