Ceramic Coated with a Thermal
A silver matte
finish applied to the steel surface to protect against rust, corrosion
and withstands temperatures up to 1200°F.
Exceeding this temperature will result in
discoloration of the tubes coming out of the ports.
The thermal barrier is a protective inside coating
which increases part longevity by reducing
under-hood temperatures by 50 degrees protecting
component parts from thermal fatigue.
Note: Exhaust corrosion will occur
if moisture (condensation) is not cleared out of the
tubes. Make sure that the vehicle is
driven at least 20 to 30 minutes whenever the car
is started to completely dry out all liquid / acid
that is created by the combustion process in the
engine. Failure to do so will cause pre-mature
rotting of the tubes from the inside out.
Warning: First Engine Runs
suggest that you use an old set of headers or set of cast iron
manifolds for your first engine run / cam break-in. This will insure
that you will not damage the coating and void the warranty of your new
headers. Header coating damage usually occurs during the first engine
run / break-in when the exhaust temperatures exceed 1200ºF. Excess
exhaust temperatures are normally caused by excessively rich or lean air
/ fuel mixtures and / or incorrect ignition timing.
