What are the torque specs on the header? I went through every page and didn't see that anywhere...

Wonder why most major header manufactors offer ceramic coated headers and I've never seen any offer prewrapped headers?



SwainTech exhaust coating has been used on world speed setting autos. I've used it on my turbo diesel manifold and turbo housing (very very hot) and it still looks like new after three years and 65k miles.

He's not saying wrapped headers are better than ceramic coated headers...he's saying Jet-Hot ceramic coating is better than SwainTec's Ceramic coating.

Moving right along, has everyone seen the ceramic coated SVT Focus header from Ford Racing? $375.00

I think the price is a huge factor for most. I know I'm leaning towards wrapping myself when I get around to it. Can't argue with how awesome the coated headers look though.
