Where in the world does THAT look cool? or even work on a boat? Wrapping your headers up like a 3rd degree burn victim? Really?   :screwy:

On the other, yes, ceramic coating DOES help, but burns are still inevitable with them. Doesn't cool them THAT much, just protects the finish and lowers the exit exhaust temps.

I think you're on the right track. Especially with a blown engine. Once you install these, prove my point with your results............ :thumbup:

When its done and there is Hp increases, its been done and gives a cool hot rod look....Where in the hell does ceramic look cool  :screwy:...its your own preference. Looking for longevity, go another route. How many boats owners on this site will install parts and then never change anything ever.

I call BS on the ceramic coating. ( might as well call it crematic coatin for us on boats)   :thumbup:

Yes it HELPS,  but there is no way on God's green earth it cools down enough to stop burns or any other problems we see with them.

You show me otherwise in normal boating applications, and I will show you my privates in town square, Pheonix at High noon.........

We'll see this winter when I get headers and have them coated. However, I don't think your privates are worth driving all the way to Phoenix for  :screwy:

I totally agree, it's a matter of preference. I happen to prefer ceramic...

Well, Im in the midst of buying a set of logsn'snails from IRRebel. I can always go back to the Headers if they rob too much power. As for the header wrap, I think they look like a scene from "The Mummy Returns". Don't listen to Your Mom. I don't listen to mine!

If your going logs make sure you get a decent pair not the cheap hardin,glenwood ect... The Harman are way far superior...the water inside goes up towards the ports as added cooling were you need it most. The others are prone to warp and/or crack. As far as the header wrap...I will assume most on this site arent hotboataphobe :o and thats what makes are boats so unique.
Ps: Ralph, I am sorry to hear you dont dig hot boats.....couldnt resist!
