Powder coating

Ok so my friend and me were looking at new headers for my car and we got to thinking that they would look cool if the were powder coated black to match the red and black theme I have with my car. Would this be bad for the headers? I don't know much about powder coated or headers!

Re: Powder coating

You could also get them cermic coated which is actually beneficial to the headers and help under hood temps and exhaust performance as well as being designed to work with the temps that you will see at the exhaust ports. It's a little pricier than basic powder coating but is a bit better. They do both the inside and outside of the tube. For reference, I had my bassani headers coated for $350 and that included shipping back to me. These were used headers that they cleaned up, coated, and shipped to me.

Look at JETHOT - Header Coatings -- Jet-Hot, jet coat, hot jet, headers, coatings, sterling, Header coating, Ceramic coating, corrosion protection, friction reduction, thermal barrier, Metallic Ceramic Coatings, MCCI, metallic ceramic, exhaust coating, perfo .



Here's the headers they did for me:

If I don't get them ceramic coated what would happen to them? Is it bad for my car if they're not?

Re: Powder coating

If you don't get them ceramic coated, then, they will never be ceramic coated. There is no coating from the factory...not being coated isn't going to hurt anything. Coating is just a way to improve things, not prevent issues.

Powder may not hold up to the temps that headers will see. The exhaust gases are extremely hot and can push surface temps to temps much higher than the curing temps for powder coats. This could crack or cause the powder coating to melt off of the headers.
